This half day tour (from 5:00am to 11:00am) Panglao Island Hopping and Dolphin Watching will take you to some of the most scenic locations off the coast of Panglao Island to discover the rich marine fauna.
Balicasag Island, off the coast of Panglao Island in Bohol, is blessed with white sand beach and rich marine life.
The reef surrounding the tiny island has been declared a marine sanctuary. It drops off suddenly to great depths. The wall is covered with soft and hard corals and it’s the habitat of trevally, barracuda and wrasse.
Pamilacan Island is a famous spot for Dolphin and Whale Watching. The Island is home to several species of dolphin and whales, including the bottle-nose dolphin, Risso’s dolphin, pantropical spotted dolphin, long-snouted dolphin, Fraser’s dolphin, melon-headed whale, short-finned pilot whale, Bryde, and the sperm whales.
The scenic Virgin Island lies in the middle of the shallow area between Panglao Islands and Balicasag. During the low tide, it’s possible to experience the C-shaped sandbar, best known for its powdery white sands and crystal clear waters.
