Snorkeling Anilao


Class 1 Philippine Snorkeling Destination

Snorkeling around Anilao has grown as an offshoot of the scuba diving industry here. As more people came to scuba dive along the Anilao / Mabini coast and it developed into a water sports vacation destination for families and groups with diverse interests, so snorkeling became fashionable for those who needed something to do while others went diving. Similarly, international tourists who come to Anilao for scuba diving need something to do on the day before they fly back to their countries of origin - you should not dive the day before you fly.

Snorkeling then, has become the alternative sport if you wanted to get wet while in Anilao / Mabini.

Snorkeling Locations Around Anilao

Snorkeling Anilao is very rewarding, especially along the southwest coast of the Mabini peninsular. The water here is crystal clear almost year round and the coral reefs slope very gently from the shore into Balayan Bay before dipping steeply into the Verde Island Passage beyond. For the more adventurous snorkeling, along the coast of Maricaban Island (just a short boat ride away) offers additional variety and the possibility of drift-snorkeling.

Sombrero Island

Take a boat ride out to Sombrero Island for some of the best snorkeling anywhere in the Philippines. Sombrero Island is surrounded by a Marine Protected Area on the edge of the Verde Island Passage - the centre of the World’s centre of marine biodiversity - with a reef that starts with a gentle slope that gets steeper and steeper. The depth of the nearby Verde Island Passage is around 500 metres and is on the migration route for whales, turtles, sharks and much much more. Sombrero Island is magnificent!
