Had the chance to visit Apo island with my family. Reached the island in the morning, had short briefing with the tour guide regarding the do’s and don’ts while snorkeling. While in the water, a small turtle swam passed us and we were really surprised that some more of them are just around the area. While on the further side a bigger size of turtle captured my interest. All in all I love Apo island and the people are very friendly. Lots of restaurants for snacks or lunch after diving or snorkeling. Visit the place and enjoy watching the turtles

I love snorkeling to see the "maamong" turtles! It was a great experience! The guide is very accomodating. Make sure to bring your own snorkel for sanitary purposes.

The diving at gorgeous Apo Island is amazing, beautiful turtles, colorful and healthy corals, high density and variety of fish. Dauin also offers a very interesting macro diving experience. Looking for the perfect resort? I recommend Acqua Dive !

great diving . saw 6 turtles one dive. another dive saw several sea snakes. one dive I saw the largest angel fish I have ever seen. there is a school of marlin on far side of the island and they were numerous and made the diving very exciting. little garbage in the water compared to other places I have dived in Philippines. saw some fish traps but was told by boat crew not to disturb them as many of locals are poorly educated about this type of fishing. nevertheless many nice fish. the coral were very, very nice and little damage. we did one drift dive which was exciting . dives started in 4-5 meters and swam short distance to wall for deeper diving then end of dives back to shallows so no boring safety stops. corals in the shallows were very nice and many turtles there.
