Crocodile Island is a small inhabited island that is a popular stop-off on island-hopping excursions from Boracay. The island earns its name from its distinctive shape which vaguely resembles a crocodile’s head. There are a wide range of activities available to visitors to the island, including the usual water-based activities, but it is the opportunities for scuba diving that the island is best known for.
Situated off the southern end of Boracay, the island is about a 20-minute boat ride from White Beach making for a convenient day trip for those based there.
The waters around Crocodile Island are known to have strong currents, so heed local advice when snorkelling or diving. However, if the currents are suitable, it is well worth getting your feet wet here as the waters host an impressive variety of marine life. Beautiful coral, wrasses, moray eels, sea snakes etc can all be seen in the clear waters that surround this island.
Many companies offer excursions to the island, usually as part of an island-hopping itinerary that includes other nearby spots such as Coral Cove Island. Shop around on Boracay for a price and itinerary that best suits you.
