If you take a tour with the bout you can visit Big Lagoon. We went with Go Paradise and it was excellent. It is important to have a good crew with you that is why I recommend Go Paradise for tours!

It seems that the more expensive one includes snorkel gears + kayak. It is rented separately (if you opted for the cheaper package) at 200-400 Php, depending on your haggling skills.
