The sardine runs in Moalboal is one of the famous destinations in Cebu due to its abundance group of fish that stick together to protect themselves against larger prey. The sardine runs in Moalboal should be included in your bucket list when you’re planning to visit Cebu. Witnessing the hundreds and thousands or even million sardines gathering in one place is truly amazing.
WHERE TO FIND SARDINE RUN
If you are already in Moalboal, ask the locals where is the Panagsama Beach and tell them that you want to visit the famous sardine run in Moalboal. No need to hire a guide, book a tour or rent a boat for this activity since it’s totally free. But if you want to rent snorkeling gear, there are a lot of diving centers and shops around Panagsama Beach where you can expect to pay around PHP 100-200.
Sardines Run is another must-visit spot in Moalboal. You wouldn’t believe me if I’ll tell you that they are located just 30 meters off the shore on Panagsama Beach. I thought the sardines were located somewhere in the middle of the ocean but they actually gathering a few meters away from the shore making it very accessible to the tourists. Their original home was in Pescador Island but moved to much even closer ashore. Local residents are also prohibited from net fishing since they want to protect the local tourism.
You will be amazed if you see sardines up close. Sardines run is also one of the best spots for freedivers and snorkelers since hundreds of thousands of sardines can be seen underwater. The abundance of giant sardine ball is one of the amazing things you can see here in Cebu.
