A great experience and professional tour. Everything went great. We were picked up from the hotel on time at 3am. Our driver Joseph was just great! He was friendly, fun, provided us with a lot of information about Cebu and the tour and just took care of everything throughout the tour. I would recommend everyone to rent an underwater camera on site. The boatswain will then take beautiful photos of you while you are in the water. With us there were 200 photos. You only have to borrow the camera for € 9, then the photos will be transferred to your cell phone. Otherwise you can also borrow everything very cheaply on site. Life jacket and diving goggles are included. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the tour. It was a very nice and special experience.

Amazing to see the sardine run!

While the ride from Mactan was a bit long for me 2.5hrs, i must compliment the good driving skills! It was nice to have a car pickup, comfy for two where we can catch up on sleep. We managed to see the amazing sardine run and guide helped to search out the sea turtles and found 2 deep in the waters but still visible. Corals were less of what we expected. But overall , a very good experience and a good deal

Take sneakers to the island. Travel well. Seems that you should get a given time for the homecoming m the boat from the island

The whale sharks were very crowded, there was no agreed massage
