Best snorkelling spot

The island does live by its name. We were taken to 3 snorkelling spots, and the area around Crocodile Island is surely the best and most colourful.

That was probably the best place we had our amazing snorkeling trip. Though we had been to the other islands in the Philippines, but there is no match of this island. The water is so clear that you can even see any tiny things in the water. We had a great time and had a private boat tour and we... More

This was the first stop on our island hopping trip. We stopped here to snorkel and there were a lot of beautiful fish. Unfortunately, it seems like parts of the reef has been damaged due to all the boats:-(

Its just an ugly rock and normally too much swell to snorkel, so dont count on it. In two weeks it was inaccessable ! Is it good, we don't know?

This island is close to Boracay Island and has acquired the shape of a crocodile due to erosion. However, the water around the island is very clear for snorkelling and feasting of the kaleidoscope of nature with abundance of corals and fishes. I found the Nemo too,

Called Crocodile island because of the shape of the island . What I want to say is not about the island. it is more about snorkeling near the island. If the weather is good, It looks like you can swim (if you are a good swimmer) or go to the snorkeling spot by pedalboard. it's very near from Tambisaan beach.... More
