Hilutangan Channel (or Gilutangan Channel) is a deep water channel that separates Mactan Island from Olango Island.

The Mactan Reef Flat lies on the starboard (left) side of this channel and the Olango Reef Flat lies on the port (right) side of this channel.

It is one of the three channels that connect the Cebu Strait to the Camotes Sea — the other two being Olango Channel and Mactan Channel.
