I am a pretty avid diver/snorkeler. The big clams (and by no means giant) are nice but in my opinion this simply isn't worth the half-day visit (the place is an hour and a half away from pretty much everything in Camiguin). There are much...More

We spent around Php700 per person for the entrance, gears, etc. It's pricey and a bit short but the experience and tour is worth it. They had a mini zoo so it's not very boring.

I was hesitant at first to try this activity but I'm glad I took it and it renewed in me a deep sense of appreciation. Their activity starts with an educational tour of their make shift nursery. Clams in captive vs clams in their natural...More

Our recommendation is to hire a local with a motorbike for a day to give you a tour around the island. They are usually parked in the airport.
