With the assistance of our boatman / guide, you can snorkel, free dive and you can even take nice pictures with the scenic views of these islands.

In addition to these islands, you will be able to visit also the island of Caohagan which is famous of its white sand beach and clear water where you can do snorkeling as well near the sandbar area. In this package, you also have the option to add the Pandanon island which is 45 minutes away from the 3 islands mentioned above, and is very famous in its long white sandbar. This Pandanon island is already part of the Bohol province which is accessible by boat from Mactan. If you want to visit Pandanon, just add it in the form when you book this island hopping tour.
