Snorkeling in the Philippines

Philippines

With its dramatic natural wonders, the Philippines are ripe for discovery and Zegrahm Expeditions is eager to take you there. We see the best this region has to offer—as well as its secluded gems—on our travel and tours in the Philippines, exploring mangrove forests, extensive limestone caves and soaring volcanoes. As part of our Philippines cruise, we spend ample time undersea, getting to know the tiny pygmy seahorses, colorful nudibranchs, and graceful manta rays of the archipelago’s kaleidoscopic coral reefs. Our immersive adventure travel and tours in the Philippines brings us to traditional villages and remote island communities, where we’ll meet the friendly locals; to the geologically unique Chocolate Hills, which resemble those delightful chocolate kisses; and Sohoton Lagoon at Bucas Grande, labyrinthine water passages accessible only at low tide.
