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.

DIY is a hassle in a place like Puerto. Tours give you many additional services so in my opinion Tour package is more better option. By DIY you'll not be able so save much, max 300 PHP maybe. If you want to try DIY, reach... More

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.
