The Best Mactan Island Tours:

Mactan the Historic Resort Island

Mactan Island was a hub of trade even before the Spanish arrived. It rose to fame almost 500 years ago at the Battle of Mactan. Then, local chieftain Lapu-Lapu's regiment defeated Ferdinand Magellan's platoon.

The landmark that you must see on Mactan Island is Mactan Shrine, at the location of the Battle of Mactan. The Lapu-Lapu Monument honors Datu Lapu-Lapu, revered locally as the Philippines' first hero.

Mactan Tours

Below are listed some of our tours from Mactan. If you are searching for more tours check out an island in the list below, because an island can be surround by more little isles or islets, and we do tour them too.

Balicasag Island

Balicasag Island Balicasag Island is, without a doubt, the best place to go swimming with sea turtles. If that is somehow not enough to peak your interest, the waters around Balicasag are crystal clear and the visibility can reach 30 metres (100 ft).

Cabilao Island

Cabilao Island Cabilao Island hosts Bohol's only natural lake and one of its biggest bird sanctuaries. If you go to swim around Cabilao, expect to have an astounding 25 meters (85 feet) minimum underwater visibility!

Cabul-an Island

Cabulan Island Cabulan Island might have the largest snorkeling area around. The water is only 1 meter (3 feet) to 3 meters (10 feet) deep out to 100 meters (325 feet) from the shore in all directions.

Camotes Islands

Caohagan Island

Caohagan Island Caohagan Island's residents work hard to preserve their environment, resulting in crystal clear waters all around. On land, they keep the flowers, plants, and trees in pristine condition. Caohagan is also know as Cawhagan.

Capitancillo Island

Capitancillo Island Capitancillo Island is so far away that few tour operators will go there. However, the long boat rides are worthwhile because of the opportunity to see pods of dolphins and to go snorkeling along the three shallow reef tops.

The Caubian Islands

The Caubian Islands The Caubian Islands offer the opportunity to snorkel Danajon Bank, one of only six double barrier reefs in the entire world. Also, travel to and from the islets offers a chance to watch a superpod of almost black-colored dolphins.

Cebu Island Tours

Cebu Island Cebu Province attracts one-third of Philippines' tourism with its 167 islands, varied landscapes, historic sites, white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and coral reefs. If you want to learn about Filipino culture, be sure to attend at least one of the 40 major annual festivals.

Cuatros Islas

Cuatros Islas Cuatro Islas remains in pristine condition because few tour operators are even capable of bringing guests here. You might observe more sea turtles and squids than other human visitors.

The Double Barrier Reef

Double Barrier Reef Danajon Bank is one of only six double barrier reef systems in the entire world. The marine biodiversity of the Pacific Ocean, including fish, coral, invertebrate, alga, and other species, evolved right here!

Dolphin Watching

Dolphin Watching Wherever around Cebu or Mactan, you might be able to see dolphins if you are lucky, although with us, you do not need luck to see dolphins, even large pod of dolphins (not 100% warranted, as always with wildlife, but...). If you want to know more about dolphin watching and whale watching do not hesitate to contact us.

Gilutongan Island

Gilutongan Island Gilutongan Island's reef top starts at only 2 meters (6 feet). The calm water currents allow snorkelers to take high-quality underwater photographs at such shallow depths.

The Middle Pass

The Middle Pass The Middle Pass of the Danajon Bank Double Barrier Reef is one of the best areas for snorkeling. Depths are only 3 meters (10 feet) to 8 meters (25 feet) here.

Nalusuan Island

Nalusuan Island Nalusuan Island is special because it began as only a sandbar. A reclamation project expanded that sandbar into a 1-hectare islet that, by design, has the look and feel of a tropical private islet.

Olango Island

Olango Island Olango Island offers more than just epic birdwatching opportunities. Olango is surrounded by many islets which also have several good snorkeling points with a fishes nursery, a fish sanctuary, thresher sharks, and more.

Pandanon Island

Whale Sharks Watching

Whale Sharks Watching Whale Sharks Watching and swimming would not be the only attraction in Oslob as the same trip is often made with a visit to Sumilon Island. We do not do this day trip by road anymore as the road trip become too dangerous (too much car/truck accidents), we now use exclusively our yacht the Rainbow Runner for safety purpose.
