Try Snorkeling in Davao Oriental

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in the
Davao Region recently opened the snorkeling area at Barangay Tamisan
in Mati City, Davao Oriental.

This amidst the enterprise development efforts undertaken under DENR's
Integrated Coastal Resource Management Project (ICRMP).

DENR Davao, with the local government of Mati City, signed a
memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Tamisan Marine Protected Area
Fisherfolk Association (TAMPAFAS) in implementing the ICRMP in the

Mati City Mayor Michelle Rabat said as part of the agreement, 17 reef
rangers were trained. They are now ready to guide tourists who want to
explore the surface of the bay.

She said the trained reef rangers were provided with brand new
snorkeling gears such as mask, fins, life vests, goggles and diving.
