“USE YOUR IMAGINATION....”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

It needs your creative imagination to interpret this island into a "crocodile" image...Although we did not landed in its beaches during our Island Hopping Tour, it looks great from a distance...

“Used to be really nice”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

It is now crowded, dirty and good only for a visit for first time visitors to Boracay. try to go very early in the morning before the hordes of tourists descend on it.

“No crocs here”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Located near the southern tip of Boracay, Crocodile Island harbors no crocodiles, but that the island's profile looks like one. It can only be accessed by a motorized outrigger boat from Station 1 or 2. Poor to mediocre snorkeling site near shore, but slightly better diving towards the drop-off. In general, you have to know where to swim to see the sea life. Apparently, some boat operators don't know (or care) where they drop you off to swim or snorkel.

Scuba tip: An easy, no d-stop OW dive, it is done as a boat-entry, shallow wall dive. There is an extensive shallow reef with an assortment of soft and hard SPS corals, including a huge variety of schooling fish like silversides and grunts. Average depth is 15 metres, visibility is 50 metres, and bottom times can extend to one hour. Though not necessary, I used Nitrox 32.

“Average Snorkeling”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The sea was a bit rough with heavy currents. The snorkeling around here was fun but I could only see really small fish n mediocre looking corals
