Sumilon Marine Sanctuary

Sumilon Island, just off the southern tip of Cebu, lies approximately 12 kilometers northeast of Dumaguete City. On its western side is the Philippine's first marine sanctuary, which is the laboratoryfor marine biologists of Siliman University. who undoubtedly are inspired by its magnificent coral gardens and drop-offs. Crystal waters account for oustanding visibility. Varied and abundant marine life provide endless numbers of interesting dives for pleasure as much as for scientific observation. Sea snakes, turtles, sting rays, mantas, barracudas, garoupa, schools of jacks and even whale sharks - they are all here.


Apo Island

South of Dumaguete City is Apo Island which features walls and coral mounds. Pelagic fish frequent the area inclusing the black-tip and whitetip sharks. Care must be taken particularly during full moon as currents are strong and unpredictable. To reach Apo Island, one can take a 35 minute ride by outrigger from Zamboanguita, Negros Oriental.
