Amazing to see the sardine run!

While the ride from Mactan was a bit long for me 2.5hrs, i must compliment the good driving skills! It was nice to have a car pickup, comfy for two where we can catch up on sleep. We managed to see the amazing sardine run and guide helped to search out the sea turtles and found 2 deep in the waters but still visible. Corals were less of what we expected. But overall , a very good experience and a good deal

Magical experience. It’s great that proceeds go to the community which lacks other means of income. Sad that tourist like me polute the waters but it does save the turtles and sardines. Also tourism helps build schools, hospitals and roads.

Take sneakers to the island. Travel well. Seems that you should get a given time for the homecoming m the boat from the island
