Experience the tropical island life when you go on this 2.5-hour day tour of Moalboal, Cebu’s best attractions. Taking you snorkeling at Pescador Island and swimming with sardines at the Sardine Run, this side trip is the perfect add-on to your escapades around the province. So if you’re up for an exciting water adventure in southern Cebu that’s all planned up for you, this tour is not to be missed.
Your excursion begins in Cebu City or Mactan with a pickup from your hotel. From there, you will head to the coast of Panagsama Beach in the town of Moalboal, where the popular sardine run activity awaits you. You will first be briefed on the activity and be given your gear. Once you’re ready, you will be guided out to sea until you reach the 70-meter drop of the reef wall.
A million sardines move in vast shoals at the reef, so prepare to be amazed. Get a chance to watch the huge clouds of sardines creating different shapes and forms against the backdrop of the beautiful reef wall. What makes it different from other sardine runs, like in South Africa, is that in Moalboal, these bait balls are available all year round.
Afterward, you will proceed to Pescador Island, located just 30 minutes off the coast of Moalboal. It is a great place to snorkel, as its coral reefs are healthy and rich with marine life, including sea turtles in Turtle Point. Make sure to take your underwater camera with you as you don’t want to miss the thriving underwater paradise this island sustains. Enjoy the rest of your time hanging out on the beach before heading back home.
