Full description
Start your day with a convenient pick-up service from your downtown accommodation at 7:00 AM. From there, travel by land to the famous underground river. Your tour guide will provide information about the area and Puerto Princesa City in general along the way, ensuring you get to learn as much as you can about this wonderful location. During the trip a stop will be made at Buenavista, a delightful viewpoint where you can get a glimpse of Ulugan Bay. Arrive at Sabang Wharf at approximately 8:00 AM, and board a pump boat to the mouth of the cave. This place is home to Monitor Lizards, monkeys, snakes, and other forms of wildlife, some of which are exclusive to Palawan. After a short walk, you'll ride a paddleboat to the underground river and marvel at this natural wonder. Once back at the wharf, lunch will be served at one of the restaurants in Sabang. Get to enjoy local cuisine and sample the taste Filipinos love. An optional side trip to Ugong Rock Adventure Zipline and Spelunking is available after the Underground River Tour so that you can make the most of your day. Once back in the city, you'll be dropped off at your hotel. If you want a relaxing end to the day, select one of the massage options. Hotel drop-off after the massage can be provided with an extra charge, which can be booked as an add-on upon checkout.

Such a well organised trip and an amazing experience! The underground river is incredible and the audio guide is really well done. So worth doing for a day in Puerto Princessa. Just be prepared for a bit of queuing to get on the boat - it’s really hot! Also take your stuff in a waterproof bag because you get a bit wet. Also the lunch is delicious and there is loads of food! Thanks so much guys!

Guide: our tour guide Ms. V, did her job excellently, she made sure that everyone is doing fine and is enjoying the trip. She also brought us to an extra destination before going home. Destination: 2hr drive was okay. The underground river trip was amazing and is definitely a must visit in palawan. Ugong Rock Climbing and Zip-line was also a great experience. We really enjoyed the trip.

The underground river is definitely a must-see if you happen to pass by Palawan. It is gorgeous and very well taken care of. Didn't get the massage part. On the way back we stopped by a smaller local attraction where you can do some caving (its optional). I didn't do it because I got so sick from the van driving (which is the worst part of every tour in Palawan).
