Board a local boat known as a 'banca' (also bangka, banka or pump-boat), a large motorised canoe fitted with outriggers for stability. Sail across the clear blue waters of Cebu Strait then drop anchor near a small island in the marine reserve, where you can snorkel over the reef, swim or sunbathe. Cruise to an uninhabited island where a barbecue lunch will be prepared for you on the beach. Spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach or swimming, sail back to the harbour in the late afternoon.
