The islands were named after the three Biblical kings, Melchor, Gaspar & Baltazar, known in English as the “Three Kings”. The biggest island is Gaspar and there exist caves where various artifacts including pre-colonial gold ornaments have been found and the caves were also believed to have been used as burial sites of pre-colonial Filipinos. The island of Gaspar is also a marine reserve and marine archaeological excavations have also been conducted off the coast of the island. Tres Reyes Islands can be reached via a bangka ride from Gasan, and are good destinations for swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling. The only dive shop in Marinduque, operated by dive master Freedom Dellosa, has its office near the coast. Renting the whole bangka to visit one of these islands for a day trip costs just P700, and is good for seven to 12 people. Best part: That price already includes use of the dive shop’s snorkeling gear for up to 12 people
