Put on some sunscreen and hop aboard this island-hopping tour of the green gems dotting the shores of Mactan, Cebu. Taking you to an adventure above and below the surface, this excursion is the perfect option for visiting guests who are looking for a tropical paradise getaway coupled with some underwater activities.
The tour begins when you’re picked up from your accommodation in Cebu City and driven to Cordova Port. Your boatman and tour guide will be waiting for you here with your life vests and tour boat. Before boarding, they will discuss with you the itinerary and the rules and regulations to make sure responsible tourism practices are observed. You will then set sail across the turquoise waters to your first stop, Caohagan Island.
This tiny islet stretches up to approximately three kilometers along the coastline. Upon arriving on the island, you can snorkel and swim around its clear waters. Feel free to stroll along its white sand beach or lounge by the shoreline to soak up some sun. Afterward, you will make your way to Nalusuan Island, where a delicious and filling tasty BBQ lunch is waiting for you.
Formerly a sandbar in the Cebu Strait until it was developed as a man-made resort island, Nalusuan's long coastal line serves as a sanctuary to a large number of sea creatures. You can go snorkeling by the beach and swim to your heart’s content. If you deem the weather too hot for your liking, you can use one of the cottages built right above the water, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding sea.
Completing your escapade is a stopover at Gilutongan (also, Hilutungan) Island, often dubbed as one of the best places for beginners in diving and snorkeling, thanks to its low-lying coral formation with an elevation of no more than 10 meters above sea level. To date, this small island is the oldest protected area for marine life in the province of Cebu.
