The boat leaves Blue Star in the morning, staying in Camiguin for lunch. It is possible to combine diving with adventure tours on the Island of Camiguin, including the hot springs and the famous trek to the top of an active Volcano.
Located in barangay Badiang, the eastern-most cape of Bohol island (only parts of Lapinig island are further east). This cape with its limestone rocks, caves, and secluded white-sand beaches can be accessed via land by walking on a bamboo walkway elevated over a Mangrove swamp or direct from Blue Star via boat. Lamanoc island is not just a beautiful nature spot, where you can see various types of plants and animals, including some indigenous monkeys, but also has a long mystical history attached to it. Since pre-colonial times, it has been a holy spot, where local priests and medicine men, called baylan or tambalan, made their offerings to nature spirits, or diwata, who where believed to reside here, and where called upon to provide a bountiful harvest or good catch. These practices continued long after the Spanish had converted the islands to Catholism, with people mixing their ancestral believes with the new teachings. Several balite trees, with their numerous aerial roots add to the mystic atmosphere.

Blue Star offers WhaleShark snorkelling tours on our Dreamliner boat to Pintuyan in Southern Leyte located on the Southern tip of Panoan Island, here is the unique opportunity to snorkel with these magnificent creatures. The remoteness of Pintuyan in Southern Leyte ensures the unique opportunity to spend time with the Whalesharks with no other boats in the vicinity.  The boat leaves early morning, returnning to Blue Star for dinner in the evening with lunch taken on the boat. Depending on available time and weather conditions there is the opportunity to dive in Southern Leyte in the morning.

The sea around Anda is richly endowed with giant shcools of Dolphins numbering over a thousand Dolphins, with up to 10 species of Dolphins as well as Pilot Whales. We take a short boat ride until we spot one of the schools then spend time having fun with these amazing creatures, you are most likely to see Bottle Nose and Spinner Dolphins.
