This tour includes lunch, transfers, and a guide to assist you throughout the trip. You will be visiting marine sanctuary and paradise-like attractions namely Tanon Strait, Manjuyod Sandbar, and Talabong Mangrove Island.
The tour starts early at 6AM. You will be picked up from your hotel in Dumaguete by an air conditioned vehicle. A tour guide will fill you in on the day’s itinerary while making your way to Bais Port. You’ll board a 15 or 20 seater boat and then go on a leisurely cruise along Tanon Straight, one of the largest protected seascapes in the Philippines. Because of its status as a marine sanctuary, whales and bottlenose dolphins swim freely in their natural habitat and might be seen swimming alongside your boat.
The next stop in your itinerary is Campuyo, where the famous Manjuyod Sandbar is located. The 600 hectare strip of fine sand is one of longest sandbars in the Philippines. It’s best to go there during the low tide so that you can easily wade through the clear blue sea while stepping on the soft powdery sand beneath your feet. The morning’s activities can give you an appetite, so your lunch on board is a welcome treat, including mixed grilled fish, pork, and squid in the menu.
Next on the list is a cruise through the Talabong Mangrove Island, a marine sanctuary that is the ideal habitat for endemic wildlife of fish, birds, and crustaceans. The trip is subject to favorable tide conditions for your safety, after which you will be returning to Dumaguete and back at your hotel.
