Upon arriving, there is a small exhibit showcasing the variety of clams native to the area. For a modest fee, you can hire a guide to take you through the shallow waters and show you the giant clams that are being grown in the area. From that point forward, the rest of your time is free to swim and snorkel,... More

We spent around Php700 per person for the entrance, gears, etc. It's pricey and a bit short but the experience and tour is worth it. They had a mini zoo so it's not very boring.

I was hesitant at first to try this activity but I'm glad I took it and it renewed in me a deep sense of appreciation. Their activity starts with an educational tour of their make shift nursery. Clams in captive vs clams in their natural habitat will build up one's interest before going to the open water. The personnel are... More

The snorkeling here is wonderful. There are lots of fish and colorful coral and of course you can see a great deal of giant clams. It's nicer seeing them in the wild but it is quite a sight to see so many of them in a line. The problem was that they charge money for everything. You pay 25 php... More

EXPERIENCE Don't be a cheapo and spend a little extra for the viewing fee to see the giant clams on their natural habitat! You'll appreciate it way better that way than just viewing them in man-made concrete pool in their open laboratory. It will also be great to bring kids here to teach them to take care of the environment.... More

We decided to spend our afternoon here since our next stop was white beach sand which would still be too hot to visit. This was a good plan since there were tables with shades where you can relax. They can also cook you lunch if you want to eat here. The clam nursery is fascinating but lacking since there are... More

If you're into marine biology, check this place out. If you're into seeing another mesmerizing angle of Camiguin, you should check this place out. This is a non-government funded project but assisted by Silliman University. I think it's a pretty educational attraction and it helps locals have jobs but what I am concerned about are the use of children as... More

One of the best sanctuaries we've visited! Lucky are those who live there for they have a swimming pool-like at their own backyard. As we walked our way going to the giant clams laboratory we were accompanied by Hello who cheerfully gave facts about giant clams. We were guided by Ken at snorkeling sites where we saw giant clams as... More

Nice snorkelling experience [my first ever], the coral reef was slowly recovering from storm damage, so not at its best. The giant clams are amazing - up to about a metre across.
