Although the waves are not the strong there is still current. Non-swimmers need a vest for sure, but that is all provided when you take the tours. The guides are very helpful and don't worry they are pro-swimmers too!..

This is best enjoyed without a tour group. It was very vibrant with life and color. You can feel the cold current coming from the underground rivers.

The sea life here is very clear and worth seeing, however, the current was very strong when we went so must be a strong swimmer and wear a life jacket.

The corals were actually alive! There were a variety of beautiful corals and plenty of fish to see. This was the best snorkeling experience throughout my trip in the Philippines.

It is indeed by Coron Island (North Philippines). The boat journey is no more than 30 minutes from Coron proper.
