Duration: 4 3/4 hours
Tour Code: BRC-002
"Explore four different sites that are ideal for snorkeling and swimming and that reveal why Boracay has been recognized as one of the world’s best tropical islands.
After departing in a boat from the pier in Cagban, you will soon arrive at the Coral Garden, a popular snorkeling site in the warm waters of the Sulu Sea. Considering that the sea here is usually clear and calm and ranges in depth from 15 to 40 feet, the Coral Garden is ideal for beginners or even first-time snorkelers.
After a safety briefing, you’ll enter the water where the coral below provides an excellent habitat for colorful tropical fish such as sergeant majors, butterfly fish and even batfish, which oddly are poor swimmers and usually walk on the bottom on their fins. Besides swimming alongside the schools of fish, you will have the opportunity to feed them from the comfort of the boat.
Next, you will relax on Diniwid Beach, which tends to be laid back and un-crowded because from land it can only be accessed through a footpath cut into a rocky cliff. Here, you will have time for a leisurely swim, a stroll along the shoreline or to simply relax in the shade.
Continuing north along the coast, you will soon reach Balinghai, another rather secluded beach, where you may snorkel and swim. Finally, you cruise to Lobster Rock, a snorkeling site that supports a colony of spiny lobsters and plenty of other colorful sea creatures. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.
Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests’ discretion and will include sandy and other natural and uneven surfaces. The snorkeling requires a moderate amount of activity; however, those who do not wish to snorkel may stay on the boat. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. A cover-up worn over swimwear; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a change of clothes; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Snorkeling equipment is included. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility."
