Your swim is limited to 45mins, but it is worth it because you get to see the giant clams which are a metre wide, and you get to learn about them. The snorkels for rent are high quality too, and I think all proceeds go to marine conservation efforts. Would recommend

In additon to the small entrance fee you will have to pay for a guide and if you have your own eqipment you will be forced to pay half of the rental fee for snorkeling equipment (strange). the guide does the snorkeling tour in a great hurry showing two fields of giant clams apparenty deposed there. there are some bassins...

Finally. For many times I've been in Camiguin Island, had the chance to visit the Giant Clam Sanctuary. At first I was very eager to see already how the clams look like. Until, excitement became a normal interest just to be there and have to take pictures of them because, the location was quite far from the national road. However,... More

A fine drive to the other end of the island brings you to a special sanctuary for the Giant Clams. Yes...clams, the filters of the sea. You get a superior tour by local kids who are VERY knowledgeable of the lives and biology of the clams. They have great tanks of them to view and experience. It's cheap for the... More

Not really into the guided tour of the giant clams out in the sea so we opted for just lounging on the beach and snorkel till the sun sets. Great time when your tour is winding down before going back to your hotel to freshen up.

I enjoyed this visit more than all other places on the Island. Entry down a very steep road some way off the highway but is very cheap, unless you want to dive. The tour guides are knowledgeable and pleasant people. The tanks are basic but many types of giant clams are there to see and discuss. They are doing very... More

This is a terrible attraction to go to. If I was by myself or just my girlfriend, I would not have given them a centavo. First you have to pay to get in which I have no problem as they are trying to collect money to preserve the giant clam. It's when you get inside when they take all your... More

If you're visiting Camiguin, this is a must. With an entrance fee of P250, you will be amazed on how these clams are protected and propagated. First, you'll hear teachings and orientations from the experts. Then you will visit the clam sanctuary from the small ones to the full grown with the assistance of their swimming guides. These clams can... More
