We were picked up directly from the beach by our hotel by boat. About email directly with organizer clarified for pickup. We were lucky and alone. At first it was Delphine looking for. Also lucky and saw dolphins like 20 other boats. (Guide call each other where the dolphins are, so very busy with boats) also had luck on the reef and saw two turtles with which you could swim. Also there full of other tourists. Had our own Schnorchelzeug and therefore can not assess how the loaned is. You can also rent an actionkamara on the reef for little money to make underwater photos. (Can be that you own a memory card need) we had our own camera so do not know if that is and is worth it.

It almost doesn't get any better!

There were only two of us on this tour plus our tour guide - thus private transfer :-) We learned a lot about the island of Bohol, Panglao and also about the history of the Philippines. Tour guide was very well prepared and was able to answer any question. We were at the Tarsiere, Chocolate Hills, Butterflyfarm and on the river for lunch. In the afternoon we saw a church from the 15th century. This excursion was really great!

private boat tour. snorkeling around the reefs was amazing. after the booking I got a confirmation of the local tour guide with the pickup details. unfortunately the transfer from our hotel in panglao to the pier wasn't free as they wrote. we had to pay 150 peso extra one way. but the tour itself was still amazing.

After paying over 500 AUD for this tour,i was expecting that everything will be included but that not happened. We got charged another $100 for riding the ATV's on the Chocolate Hills I need your explanation for this pls Thank you

Seen the most in a day
