Snorkeling options abound in Padre Burgos, Southern Leyte with some of the quietest and least disturbed coral reefs in the Philippines. The 'house reef', just a handful of metres in front of our superb private beach, has excellent corals, a huge variety of fish and is frequently visited by sea turtles. There are plentiful other snorkeling sites nearby which can be accessed on foot, via a very short ride on public transport, or with the resort's excellent 2-person kayak.
Snorkeling boat tours for small groups of 2 to 6 people are conducted all year-round in our superb motor banca, Monarch of the Bay, which was newly built in 2013 specifically for the purpose. Departing from the resort's private beach the tours take in 1, 2 or 3 of the best snorkeling sites in Sogod Bay according to guests' wishes. Dolphin watching is included in the 1-site tours, while the 3-site tour is a wondeful full day outing including a delicious barbecue lunch at one of the great beaches around the bay. Most of the dive sites also offer superb snorkeling and, from November through May, snorkeling with whale sharks is a truly outstanding wildlife experience.
Snorkeling tours are also available to non-residents, and to book a place just call or e-mail us.
