My fiance and I are both big fans of snorkeling. We went around to about half a dozen spots in Boracay and Crocodile Island was by far the best. Hop out of the boat, look down, and you're absolutely surrounded by fish and healthy coral. There is a small (20 peso) fee for using the area, but WELL worth it... More

We were brought here for snorkeling. I would have to say I would not come here for a snorkel. There are lots of tourist places in SE Asia with better snorkeling.

we did some snorkelling here..it's nice when it's sunny. Chill on the boat when otherwise. I even removed the snorkels and dove deeper (as it is only a 3 to 9ft deep/shallow). Nice experience.

We booked an island hopping activity that included Crocodile Island. We went snorkeling and there really were a lot of corals and fishes that would approach you freely. More fishes would come if you throw food, so make sure you bring bread for feeding. Snorkeling fee costs Php20 but if you don't have any goggles/masks and snorkel on, you can... More

Ok so it perhaps wasn't the best time to visit, as the residual rain from a passing typhoon hit Boracay. But the vicinity of Crocodile island was mired in all kinds of filth from water pouring down. Visibility was zero and so any kind of diving was just out of the question. Apparently it's better when there hasn't been recent... More

This is where most of the boat tours take you for snorkeling. You only see Crocodile Island when sailing by. The snorkeling was fine; lots of fish and coral. Banca rental for 4 was less than $12 per person for a few hours.
