Water activities are just some of the wide array of adventure and activities you can experience in Bohol. One of the best water activities is probably swimming and snorkeling because not only it does not cost much but also it is a fun thing to do with the family or friends.
Swimming and snorkeling are usually part of a cheap Bohol tour package. It is included in the second day of a standard 3D2N (three days, two nights) travel package. Early in the morning on the second day, the boat operator will go to your hotel to fetch you, so you can watch the dolphins and whale sharks at around 7 o’clock in the morning in the waters near Pamilacan or Balicasag Islands. After half an hour, the dolphins will no longer jump out of the water because of the heat of the atmosphere. This is the time the boatmen will bring their guest to the nearby Balicasag Island. Known for its diverse aquatic resources and laid-back village, Balicasag Island is one of the highly visited small islands in the Philippines because it offers an awe-inspiring corals and fishes. Snorkeling while swimming is the best activity here and there are swimming gadgets that the guest can rent for P150 to P300.
Swimming and snorkeling can also be enjoyed in the white-sand beaches of Panglao islands. Alona beach is one of the most popular in the island because of its Boracay-like hotels, restaurants and bars. Swimming and snorkeling in the waters near Panglao may be boring once you experience the aquatic resources of Balicasag and Pamilacan but if you like to follow small fishes and see the pristine white sand underneath the water, it will be fine for you.
