About eight to ten feet deep, the Giant Clams area comprise of a wide seabed with about 30 artificially implanted clams, each reaching as wide as one meter in diameter. During the snorkeling activity, visitors would have to hold onto to the outrigger of the boat while snorkeling. The boat would then move to where the giant clams are found.
