Come along on this fantastic marine sanctuary hopping tour that takes you to the Olango Group of Islands where you will snorkel and see the vibrant underwater ecosystem that the area is known for. This budget-friendly trip will take you to the islands of Hilutungan, Nalusuan, and Caohagan and is perfectly suited for anyone interested in a fun day under the sun.

This excursion starts when you are picked up from your hotel in Cebu, Mandaue, or Mactan early in the morning. You will be driven to Mactan Wharf where you will board a boat that will take you to your first destination, Hilutungan Island Marine Sanctuary. Don’t be shy and make friends as you meet the others joining the tour!

Hilutungan's (a.k.a. Gilotungan) clear aquamarine waters host a variety of fish, coral reefs, and other marine creatures. Don your mask and explore the beauty deep underwater. If you’re new to snorkeling, your tour guide will assist you until you feel comfortable enough to go on your own. Make sure to put on your life jacket!

From Hilutungan Island Marine Sanctuary, you will then check out the manmade marine sanctuary in Nalusuan Island. Like the first island, it's as rich in marine life, too. You can swim and snorkel, or simply take a stroll around the small island. Afterwards, you will go to Caohagan Island that’s home to yet another marine sanctuary. Laze around on or take pictures of the sandbar while enjoying your barbecue lunch picnic by the sea.

Just remember: follow the Leave No Trace principles! Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, and kill nothing but time.

Hop on this joiner tour to spend the whole day appreciating the richness of marine life in these marine sanctuaries. Check availability by choosing a date above.
