Pescador Island: A Wonder Underwater
Located in the Southern municipality of Moalboal in Cebu, Pescador is an uninhabited island almost entirely made up of limestone. A former fishing site to the early Cebuanos, the island derived its name from the Spanish word ‘pescador’ meaning fisherman.
Today, the island is a protected marine sanctuary famous for its school number of sardines, as well as sea turtles, dolphins and the occasional sharks. Its magnificent house reefs and colorful coral gardens provide shelter to various species of fishes, mollusks, crustaceans, and other marine animals-- making the island a paradise for snorkelling, free diving and scuba diving.
Dive in and explore the rich underwater haven of Pescador Island and experience the fascinating sardine run that will leave you in awe.
