Canyoning is one of the fastest growing extreme sports in the world. The reason why people love it so much is that it involves so many different activities. Canyoning which is also referred to as "canyoneering" in the United States puts your physical, as well as your mental strengths to the test. You've got a little bit of climbing and repelling mixed in with some swimming and diving. Mother Nature is one seriously harsh opponent. Do you have what it takes?

PESCADOR ISLAND - LOCALLY CALLED AGAD-AGAD
Pescador Island is located just few miles from the coast of Cebu along Tanion Street and this is locally called Agad-Agad. Before this island became popular to marine enthusiast due to its amazing marine living organism which is different school of fish in particular, this was the source of fishing livelihood by local folks in Basdiot and some few fisherman from the town of Moalboal.
But as discovery by tourism industry to this beautiful place, most fishermen are now complaining that almost they could not catch fish in Pescador island maybe because the habitat is been disturbed by several scuba divers visiting the place to see different school of fish.
There are several species of fish that can be found in Pescador Island to mention few like apingan, malubgas, lokihok, solid, mayamaya, sunghan, bahaulo, kotdan, kalamohoy, palata, mongit and many more that’s why no wonder that both foreign and local tourist are coming all year round to visit Moalboal and took scuba diving in Pescador island.
Basdaku, (big sand) the remaining pristine white sand in Moalboal which attract both local and foreign tourist who want to spend their holiday under sunny day, very clear water, clear visibility, clean air and friendly people. Basdaku was properly managed and protected by the local executives as they learnt a lesson from the greed of beach operator from Panagsama beach where all the white sand not even comparable to the beauty of Boracay was all washed out into the deep water when typhoon " Nitang " passed the area as greed operator place a breakwater with the intention of monopolizing the beautiful sand.
Nature is very hard to fathom as sand from Basdaku will move south during the northeast monsoon from October to early march then stuck in Panagsama and somewhere then comeback during southwest monsoon.
