Discover the underwater wonders of Cebu through this island-hopping day tour around Moalboal. This is a perfect experience for people who love the sea as you will get to spend most of the day out on the waters. The tour is also inclusive of boat transfers, the service of a driver-guide, rental snorkeling gear, entrance fees, hotel pick-up and drop-off within certain cities in Cebu, and a complimentary lunch.

At around 4:30 AM, your guide will fetch you from your hotel if you are staying within Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu, or Cebu City. Otherwise, you will have to meet your guide at an agreed-upon area. After getting picked up, you will make your way to Moalboal town. On the way, you can have breakfast at nearby establishments at your own expense. 

Upon arriving at Moalboal, you will go to the port and hop in a boat. From there, you will kick off your island-hopping adventure. During your trip, you will get to witness the world-famous Sardine Run by snorkeling off the shores of the town. This phenomenon features thousands of sardines swimming so close together that they resemble a shiny silver wall. 

Another part of your excursion is a visit to Pescador Island, where you can find the ruins of an old structure and a lighthouse. Apart from exploring the island's surface, you may also jump into the water to marvel at the nearby coral reef. In between your adventures, you will be treated to a delicious set lunch. 

When you're full and recharged, you will end your tour with a stop at Turtle Bay. Here, you will be able to spot gentle sea turtles swimming past you as you snorkel. Afterward, you will be escorted back to the port and to your accommodations. 

Experience the rich and diverse environment of Moalboal town in Cebu by booking this day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date. 

DISCLAIMER: Seeing turtles on this tour is NOT GUARANTEED. While turtles often frequent these tourist attractions, their behavior may sometimes be unpredictable, and there is a possibility that you may not encounter one during your tour.
