Your guide will pick you up at your accommodation in Panglao or Tagbilaran. From there, you will begin your journey towards Balicasag Island. Named as a marine sanctuary, the island is located about 6 KM southwest of Panglao. While Balicasag Island is relatively small, it is surrounded by reefs and is home to thriving marine life.
Upon arriving at the island, feel free to explore the area for yourself. You can lounge by its fine sands or take a dip in its cool sea waters. You will get to witness a diverse species of corals and schools of fishes even in shallow waters, making it a beginner-friendly site for snorkeling.
For those looking for more adventure, you will be able to see impressive submarine cliffs, and those are surrounded by both soft and hard corals. Aside from the reef, turtles frequent the area together with lionfish, clownfish, triggerfish, and more marine species.
Once you're done with your ocean exploration, a picnic lunch with drinks will be served by the beach, so you can eat while enjoying the view. After relaxing under the sun, your guide will take you back to your accommodation in Panglao or Tagbilaran.
