Gilutongan Island Snorkeling Tour

Gilutongan Island Tour and Snorkeling

Gilutongan Island Tour Gilutongan Island, also called Hilutungan Island, Hilotongan Island, or Lutungan Island, lies 30 minutes by bangka boat from Mactan Island. It is only 11 kilometers (7 nautical miles) from our Scotty's Dive Center Headquarters at Shangri-la Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu Province, heading 199° on the compass.

Gilutongan Island's 11-15 hectares has white sand on its northern and western sea shores. Shallow corals are on its eastern sea shore. The best place to snorkel is on the west side.

Seaweed farming is a major industry on Gilutongan Island. Local farmers export their seaweed to Cebu to become carrageenan.

Snorkeling Gilutongan Marine Sanctuary

Go snorkeling in calm water currents at shallow depths. The reef top at Gilutongan Island starts at only 2 meters (6 feet). There is also a sandbar to swim along.

The crystal clear water has high visibility. Capture vibrant corals and coral fishes with your underwater camera.

You may feed the fishes as you snorkel. Bring bread!
