The Balicasag Island Tour

The Balicasag Island Balicasag Island lies 20 - 30 minutes by boat from Panglao Island, Bohol, depending on your location in Panglao. It is 9 kilometers (less than 5 nautical miles) from the BE Grand Resort hotel in Bohol, heading 248° on the compass.

Balicasag Island features a marine sanctuary and nearby dolphin watching. Underwater attractions are mere swimming distance from the white sand beaches. In fact, the water is so crystal clear you will no doubt start taking photos even before you enter the water.

Balicasag Island enjoys the Bohol Sea's unusual richness in marine biodiversity. It even has caverns to explore. The region is also home to whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, and even blue whales. So tour packages can be diverse, as well.

And you can go swimming with sea turtles!

Swimming with Sea Turtles at Balicasag Island, Bohol

You can go snorkeling at any time of day or night in calm water currents. Enjoy high visibility as you swim with sea turtles and other aquatic life. A plateau at a depth of 3-18 meters (10-60 feet) makes this experience safe for beginners, as well. You can also find stronger currents, if you want a challenge.

Balicasag Island has many features, but two sites are notable for snorkelers. The Turtle Point Site is where you can swim alongside sea turtles. This may be one of the best snorkeling experiences you can have. And, the Royal Garden Site is a spectacular coral garden only 18 meters (59 feet) deep.

Although the sea turtles will draw you to Balicasag Island, there is so much more!
