Agutayan Marine Sanctuary

In a bustling Cagayan de Oro City, you’d think it would be a stretch to find turquoise waters and white sands. You’d think, it will take hours to reach paradise. Agutayan Marine Sanctuary is merely 45-minutes away, in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. Aside from the lovely white sand bar, the marine life is superb – a host of large fish, some sea turtles, a white tip shark, and a school of Eagle Rays call Agutayan their home.

Come and preview the wonders of this hidden gem in the province of Misamis Oriental. Explore more through photos taken by our fellow divers and visitors.

 
Instant year-round getaway. Agutayan is the perfect weekend getaway. Just a quick travel from CDO to Jasaan and a boat ride from Jasaan brings you to the white sandbar surrounded by crystal clear waters.

Start with a dreamy sunrise. Be early when visiting Agutayan. Not only will you avoid strong winds or the sun heat on the naked island, you will also be greeted with a wonderful sunrise over the landscape of Jasaan.
 
Happy divers and guests. Agutayan is regularly visited by locals who want to spend a good time swimming in the clear waters. It is also a perfect training ground for new divers.
