Day tour from Manila. Spend a day snorkeling three vibrant sites. See rich and colorful marine life only a couple of hours away from Manila. Private transportation and snorkeling gear included.

The Philippines has the highest marine biodiversity in the world and the country’s greatest attractions are found in its seas and oceans. Only 130 kilometers (80 miles) south of Manila is an underwater paradise. Anilao has over 40 dive sites and is the most popular scuba diving destination in the country. But you don’t need to dive deep to enjoy the riches of Anilao because the area has several coral reefs that are shallow and ideal for snorkeling. No deeper than two meters (6.5 feet) you can already see a multitude of creatures such as feather stars, damsel fish, sea cucumbers, angelfish, sea squirts and the ever-popular clownfish. A little deeper and you can find giant clams and moray eels. If you’re lucky you might even run into a sea turtle.

On this trip, we take you to three vibrant snorkeling sites, each with its own different set of marine inhabitants. If you love snorkeling, this is the best day trip that you can take from Manila.

Day 1: To Anilao and back

We pick you up at your hotel in Manila at 6:30AM, make a quick stop along the way for breakfast and arrive in Anilao at around 9:00AM. We will select the snorkeling sites based on weather conditions, give you a quick briefing and help you fit your snorkeling gear.
Then we hop on a boat and visit two coral reefs, spending about an hour and a half at each site. Your trip leader will be in the water with you, guiding you through the snorkeling site and pointing out interesting marine life. At around 1PM, we go back to shore for lunch.

After lunch, we snorkel one more site right from shore before heading back to Manila at around 3:30PM. We drop you off at your hotel at around 6:30PM.
