Caubian Island Snorkeling Tour

The Caubian Islands are made of two islands

Caubian Islands The "last frontier," the Caubian Islands lie less than 30 minutes from our headquarters. They are only 16 kilometers (9 nautical miles) from our Scotty's Dive Center on Mactan Island, heading 93° on the compass. Residents live on Caubian Gamay, while the white sand beach is on Caubian Dako, also called Po (Poh) Island. You can walk from one island to the other during low tide on the sandbar.

Residents take pride in keeping the Caubian Islands as virgin as possible. Mainland Cebuanos only recently discovered this destination, so tourism is new.

You can treat yourself to a bonus dolphin watching excursion on your package tour. These small, almost black-colored dolphins swim between Mactan Island and Danajon Bank. They like to appear in the morning or afternoon if the sun is out and the water is calm (ask us for the exact time they appear). There may be as many as a superpod (large group) of them.

You can explore all of Caubian Gamay in about 20-30 minutes. Most of the residents you will meet are blood relatives.

Snorkeling the Caubian Islands

The world has only 6 known double barrier reefs. The Caubian Islands' 300-hectare marine protected area is part of it. That makes snorkeling here very rare and special.

And that's not even all. This protected area also includes a shark den.

Besides the rare double reefs and shark den, you will have one more rare opportunity. Most fishing activities include catching fish, but at the Caubian Islands you feed the fish.

Your Caubian Islands Excursion

Caubian Islands Snorkeling Protecting the Caubian Islands includes maintaining noise discipline. Thus, this is a good destination to rest and relax.

The sandbars that appear at low tide are good swimming locations. The white sand beach is a good swimming location, as well. Besides snorkeling and swimming, you can also go banana boating and jet skiing.

Overnight stays are not allowed, so your package tour will include other destinations.
