What people are saying:

we went to Balicasag from Panglao. first we did dolphin watching which I wouldn’t recommend. The boats circle the dolphins and charge after them to get a better view. Balicasag itself has a wonderful diversity of fush and sea turtles. we saw sea turtles feeding and it was great! Took a video with my phone but the quality isn’t great!
