Hi all, just returned from snorkeling around Apo island (23 July 2018). OK so I have heard a lot that this place is mainly for divers, but I've been there and saw first hand - it's excellent for snorkelers too. Took a day trip (organised...More
The boats going to Apo island is in Malatapay market in Dauin, Dumaguete. At the booth the staff registered our names & contact details. We arrived after lunch and all smaller boats that fits 4 people were already hired so we didn't have any choice...More
Beautiful. Abundant sea life. Anemones in an amazing array of colors with their defender clown fish in them living color! Big stuff - turtles. Mating octopus. No diver was going to interfere! HA! T shirt folks come in a skiff to the boat to make...More
Apo island is one of the best dives i ever had. A 40 minute sail off the mainland of Dauin. Was a lovely trip. Beautiful corals, plenty of turtles, nursing shark, huge frog fish, nudibranch (green and orange/black). I think this is the only place...More
Located just around 30-45 mins by boat from Malatapay, Zamboangita (near Dumaguete City) in Negros Oriental is Apo Island, famous for its diving sites and wonderful population of giant turtles. We went there on a day tour, taking a boat from Malatapay at around 9:00...More
Honestly I had high expectations. The turtles were great don’t get me wrong...but the experience was kind of frustrating. You get paired off with a guide which you HAVE to go with. They don’t do anything but babysit...the water is crammed with tourists screaming...who freak...More

If you are asking to do a day trip from Dauin to Apos Island, it is an all day activity. You most certainly should call ahead. Departure for Apos Island is earlier than the standard two tank dive and/or snorkel boat departure. there are several dive operators. I dove with Sea-Explorers (they have a trip advisor listing) and the staff was excellent. I hope this helps. Apos Island is absolutely worth it. The sea life is amazing. Yes for snorkelers too.
