Cebu Island Snorkeling

The MOST popular snorkel dive spot in Philippines.

On Cebu Island, the snorkeling at Moalboal is known for its variety of hard and soft corals. When snorkeling in Moalboal, you can expect to find sea turtles and occasional whale sharks. There is a 10km long coral reef located about 40-60m deep off the peninsula of Moalboal. The town of Oslob is popular with snorkelers looking to go out with whale sharks.

Tip - While snorkeling off Cebu Island, make sure to use a diver down flag since the boaters tend to drive fast and be unaware of snorkelers in the water.
