Cebu Moalboal Island Hopping Private Tour | Pescador Island, Turtle Bay & Sardine Run
Explore the vibrant marine ecosystems of Cebu through this island-hopping tour around the coastal town of Moalboal. Travelers who love the sea are a perfect fit for this experience as you will get to snorkel in pristine waters. This tour already comes with roundtrip boat transfers and complimentary use of snorkeling gear for a convenient and fun time out at sea.
You can start your adventure as early as 6 AM. Just head over to the Kawasan Canyoneering Headquarters in Badian. As the tourism fee is not part of the tour, it is best to pay it in advance. From there, you will hop on a boat bound for your first stop of the day, Pescador Island. Here, you can find ruins of a lighthouse and other structures that give a glimpse of this islet's history. You can also wade into the waters to see what marine animals live in the nearby coral reef.
After Pescador Island, you will make your way to the world-famous sardine run area. This phenomenon is made up of thousands of sardines swimming so close together that they look like a shimmering wall of silver from afar. Along with the sardine run, you may also spot a thresher shark nearby. While you snorkel, make sure to keep a safe distance to avoid disturbing the sardines and other marine life.
Next, you will end your tour with a visit to Turtle Bay. As its name suggests, this spot is a popular swimming area among sea turtles. Dive under the waves to get a better look at these gentle sea creatures in their natural habitat. After your time swimming with the sea turtles, you will sail back to the port.
