Full description
Hop from Hilutungan, Nalusuan, and Caohagan Island on a guided boat tour where you can snorkel in the emerald waters of an official marine sanctuary, meet the locals, and enjoy a freshly prepared BBQ lunch. Start your day with a hotel pickup or meet your guides at the meeting point in Mactan Island. After a brief safety tutorial, grab your snorkeling gears and set sail on a traditional Banca boat.  Take an enjoyable 25-minute boat ride to Hilutungan Island, a snorkeling paradise as this site has been declared a marine sanctuary for decades. Jump in and admire schools of big jacks fish pass by. Travel to the next island of Nalusuan, located only 10 minutes away. Discover the marine sanctuary that has an abundant fauna for snorkelers to swim through. Spot a turtle swimming in the waters below if you are lucky.  Walk along Nalusuan’s long wooden pier that stands over its shallow waters. During low tide, a beach appears on the opposite side, facing Cebu.  Afterward, head over to Caohagan Island, where native huts stand on the small beach, offering pleasant shade from the sun. Try out some of the island dishes cooked by the locals along the beach.  Explore Caohagan’s fishermen village and later sit down and relax as you feast on a local-style BBQ lunch prepared fresh by the boat crew.
