We booked a tour to Honda bay. It's was too pricey.. nothing spectacular about this tour. The water was dirty and too crowded. I do not recommend this at all. Not would be a waste of money and time.

Snorkels costs Php 150, but I recommend you check the snorkels coz I took one that is cracked and waters seeps in so I didn't really enjoy the snorkeling that much.
