This fantastic snorkel safari combines three fantastic resorts, each offering spectacular yet different scenery, land excursions and marine sightings. The Visayas, the group of islands we will be visiting, are known for emerald islands, the calm sea lapping onto bright white beaches, stunning coral reefs and welcoming friendly people.
Touring the islands and reefs of Cebu, Bohol and Cabilao, we will snorkel on some of the healthiest reefs in the country - colourful and busy with fish, turtles and reef sharks. We will also visit some fabulous land-based attractions including viewing tarsiers (small primates), the famed Chocolate Hills, rice fields and local villages.We'll be based between three fabulous resorts, ideally situated to allow for beautiful land-based excursions and easy access to some of the best snorkeling in the area. Trip highlights include snorkeling with turtles and several large schools of fish, visiting beautiful waterfalls on Cebu, exploring a mangrove where juvenile fish and shark pups are often seen and enjoying some of the most beautiful reefs and beaches in the country.
This tour is fully guided by a member of the Snorkel Safari Asia team.
