From Puerto Princesa: Day Trip to El Nido and Island Hopping

1. From Puerto Princesa: Day Trip to El Nido and Island Hopping

Discover the islands around El Nido on a full-day island hopping tour from Puerto Princesa. Explore the area's most picturesque sites, including the Secret and Big Lagoons, and replenish your energy with a sumptuous BBQ lunch. Choose the private option to have your own exclusive experience, allowing for more flexibility and customization.  Begin your tour bright and early with pickup from your hotel in downtown Puerto Princesa at around 4 AM and head straight toward El Nido. Rest during the approximately 5-hour journey, and make a short stop to stretch your legs and buy some food. Upon arrival in the resort town of El Nido, you'll be dropped off near the jump-off point. Have breakfast at one of the several restaurants before boarding your boat, if you like. To fully enjoy the activity, rental of gears and kayak are already included in the package. Set sail on your island hopping activity by 9 AM and make up to 5 stops in all. Depending on the assigned route, you will start with the Secret Lagoon, a secret world hidden in jagged rock walls. Continue on to Shimizu Island, a gorgeous beach with crystal-clear waters. Then, head to Seven Commandos Beach, lined with coconut trees and pure white sand, before making your last stop at the Big Lagoon. By midday, pause your island hopping to savor a lunch of barbecue pork, chicken, and seafood, as well as vegetable salad and fresh fruits. The island hopping activity ends at around 4 PM, at which point you'll be dropped off back at the wharf where you'll head back to your hotel in Puerto Princesa. Prior to going back to Puerto Princesa, you can enjoy dinner in El Nido. At 6 PM, get back on the road to your hotel, which you should reach by midnight.

What people are saying about Puerto Princesa

The tour was extremely well organized. Despite a slightly late pick-up we arrived well on time in El Nido. The boat company were great, we were told 5 stops and we got them. No rushing and ample time to enjoy each spot. The scenery is stunning and really good snorkeling and beaches. Lunch is cooked and served on the boat. They put a lot of emphasis on safety and we were well looked after during the day. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. Well worth the price and journey.

The boat does not dock directly on the beach, so you have to walk 10m to the boat at the open. We had to carry our bags on our heads to prevent them from falling into the water. This tour should only be done in good weather (ideally no weather with strong wind). The drive from puerto princesa to el nido takes 4.5 hours, far too long, but with 2 toilet breaks. On the whole, one must have seen el nido.

The tour was perfect! A great way to see the many islands. The tour guides were awesome and there was enough time to enjoy each location. I did package A and I really enjoyed it.
