One of the most reputed island hopping tours in El Nido, Tour A is definitely a must-do! To get the full description of this island hopping tour, you can read this page: El Nido Tour A.
Private Tour A Itinerary:
El Nido Island Hopping Tour A includes the following destinations:
- Big Lagoon (or) Small Lagoon
- Secret Lagoon
- Shimizu Island
- 7 Commando Beach
Please note that due to new municipal rules, Big Lagoon and Small Lagoon is not possible to do it in one day. It is depends on the availability of each lagoon.
Since it’s a private tour, you can skip any destination you want and even stop on another island, as long as it’s on the route of Tour A.
Important note: There is environmental user fee (entrance fee) of P200 per person for each lagoon aside from the Eco-Tourism Development Fee of P200 as implemented by the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources – Protected Area Management Board (DENR-PAMB). Those additional payments will be paid on the implementing government agencies offices like DENR-PAO and Tourism Department local office.
Here is the details of additional payments:
Eco-Tourism Development Fee (ETDF) – P200 per person (Tourism Office)
Environmental User fee for each lagoon – P200 per person (DENR-PAO)
Two Options To Avoid The Crowds:
A private tour allows you to enjoy the boat for your group only. This is already a big advantage, but there’s more. When you book a private tour, you get to beat the crowds thanks to two solutions: the counter-the-clock tour or the reverse tour. Here are more details about each option:
- Counter-the-clock tour: Instead of departing at 9:00 AM like every other boat, you’ll start your tour around 45 minutes later. That way, you will get to experience deserted islands/lagoons, instead of being among dozens of boats. Unlike an early departure, you won’t have the stress of “staying ahead” and you’ll be able to spend more time in one destination if you enjoy it.
- Reverse tour: You’ll depart at the same time as everybody else but you’ll do the tour in the reverse order, starting with what normally is the last destination, and finishing with what is normally the first one.
You can choose one or the other solution when you make your booking. There is no additional cost. You can also, and of course, decide to go at the same time as the other boats by keeping this option unchecked. Our recommended option is the “counter-the-clock” tour.
You only need to make a 30% confirmation deposit in order to confirm and reserve your private tour. You’ll be able to settle the remaining balance in cash when you’re in El Nido.
Your booking includes:
- Lunch Buffet
- Drinking Water
- Mask and Snorkel
- Private Tour Guide
- Life Vests
Kayak Rental In Big Lagoon:
There are kayak rental services available in Big lagoon. In case you would like to avail such kayak rentals, think about bringing some cash with you on the tour as these optional kayak rentals are not included in the tour package. Here are the usual rate offered by the renters:
- 2 seaters Kayak: Price is P250 for Big lagoon
