Dugong Day Trip

This full-day excursion (for both skin & scuba divers), begins at the El Rio Y Mar Resort, and proceeds to several Dugong feeding grounds along the Busuanga coastline, as well as 2 Turtle Islands.

You will be transported to El Rio Y Mar Resort by a van and spend the whole day on a boat. A short briefing will be conducted with information on the trip and the Dugong. If a Dugong is spotted, you have to be patient and watch it from the boat (like whale-watching), and then slowly approach by snorkeling. If the Dugong doesn’t shy away, then scuba equipment may be engaged.

Over the last years, there was a success rate of over 80 % of Dugong sightings. There is an average of 30 Dugongs living in the bay. Following are 2 dives on coral gardens and sea grass-bedded diving sites, with all their magnificent marine life.
