video cebuCabilao Day Trip Video - 1:00 min

We offer island hopping and day trips to several islands in the area. Snorkelers and divers alike will be mesmerized by the marine sancruaries of Hilutungan Island, Nasuluan island, Talima and Cabilao Island. Theese are very successful marine parks with a lot of fish and other colorful marine life.

Even snorkelers will be amazed by the beauty of the coral reef and the amount of fish, even in very shallow water. Scuba divers will appreciate the vibrant display of all kinds of reef fish, since they are used to divers and come very close. U/W photographers will have a field day.

Island Hopping around Cebu is also suited for snorkelers, scuba divers with limited experience and u/w photographers, since the dives are not very deep but very colorful (the San Juan Wreck being an exception).

Our island hopping and day trips are conducted with modernized outrigger boats, called “banca” (water spider), which allows the boat to come very close to shallow reefs and drop-offs.
