Hop on board and explore the surrounding islets around Mactan in this tour. From snorkeling to swimming, this excursion is perfect for anyone who loves the water. If you are looking for a tropical paradise getaway coupled with some underwater activities, this private island hopping trip is for you.

The tour begins when you’re picked up from your accommodation in Cebu City and driven to Cordova Port where you will meet your boatman who will also serve as a guide throughout the trip. He will discuss the itinerary and the rules and regulations to make sure responsible tourism practices are observed.

Upon arriving in Caohagan Island, you can snorkel and swim around its clear waters. This tiny islet stretches up to approximately three kilometers along the coastline. Swim to your heart's content, as you will enjoy a delicious and filling tasty BBQ lunch at Nalusuan Island. 

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, while the cottages built right above the water offer breathtaking views of the ocean.

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 because of 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.

Mactan is famous for its sand beaches, pristine blue waters, colorful marine life, and underwater adventures. Aside from natural attractions, it is also home to significant historical events such as the Battle of Mactan, where the locals resisted Spanish colonizers.

Come along this tour to bask in the tropical sun and indulge in hours of water activities. Check availability by choosing a date above.
