Full description
Spend a perfect day island-hopping in paradise. After pickup from your accommodation in downtown El Nido, you'll head to Carong-Carong beach for the necessary tour briefing and registration. By 9:00 AM, you'll be on your way to various destinations on Bacuit Bay.  Your day will include 4 stops in all: start with the Secret Lagoon, a secret world hidden in the 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. Your last stop will be the Big Lagoon. If you've booked far enough in advance, you'll be guaranteed entrance to this Lagoon, one of three premium stops designated by the local government—entrance is restricted to just 500 people per day. By midday, make a stop to enjoy a lunch of barbecue pork, chicken, and seafood, as well as vegetable salad and fresh fruits. Head back to Carong-Carong by approximately 4:00 PM.

Our tour guide Alvin was the best. He helped us take our beautiful photos, carried our stuff and gave us a lot of insight about the islands. I would really recommend the private tour, it avoids crowds and you get a more tailored experience. The food was amazing and well presented, it was unfortunate that we couldn’t finish it all as there was only 4 of us. If you can only do one tour, make sure it’s Tour A - lots of activities and beautiful sights. I would recommend to bring a lot of sunscreen and sun safe accessories as you can easily burn without noticing because you are having a lot of fun.

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed the tour, the crew were all friendly and ready to help. Food was enjoyable, the tour guides gave explanations about each island we went to. I would definitely recommend this excursion for anyone visiting El Nido. Special shoutout to the main tour guide on the Kubera boat, he made it extra special for us!

Come prepared for going in the water immediately, as you will need to get water to waist/chest level just to get started with the tour. Bring your own reef shoes or rent from them at the beginning of the tour. We had a great and fun guide, which helped us spend a great time and was a master at avoiding the crowds. Loved the hidden and the big lagoon, as well as just chilling in some of the islands. Great day all around if you have some time by El Nido. PS: I love how much they care about keeping the whole area clean and forbid any type of plastics to be brought in.
