Explore the beaches and waters of Bohol when you book this private island-hopping tour. Travelers who want to enjoy the sun, sand, and sea in Bohol will enjoy this tour, as it comes with stops at a fish sanctuary, Virgin Island, and Balicasag Island. If you wake up early, you can also enjoy dolphin watching. This tour also includes free use of snorkeling gear, bottled water, and pick-up and drop-off from and to accommodations in Panglao.

On the day of your tour, wait for your driver-guide to pick you up at your hotel or resort in Panglao. If you want to experience dolphin watching, you need to be ready by 5:30 AM, as the dolphins are usually seen in Bohol's waters early in the morning. If you want to skip this, you can be picked up at 8 AM. 

After being picked up, you'll head to the water and board the boat that will take you around the islands of Bohol. Before heading to your first island, you'll circle the waters of Bohol for a chance to see dolphins swimming. With patience and a bit of luck, you'll see them swimming in groups near the sea's surface. Make sure you have your camera ready to snap photos!

You'll then head to Balicasag Island. The island is home to a marine sanctuary, and you can snorkel to get close to the fish and other marine life that call Bohol's waters home. You can feed the fish at the reef, but remember not to disturb or harm any animals or plants you see. You also have the option to have lunch here, but you need to shoulder the costs of your meal.

Your last stop is Virgin Island. As its name suggests, Virgin Island is a bare sandbar in the middle of the sea, surrounded by pristine waters. You can enjoy the stunning island views or take a refreshing dip in the ocean. You can also buy snacks from the vendors here.

After your tour, your guide will bring you back to the mainland and escort you to your hotel or resort in Panglao so you can rest or explore the rest of Bohol on your own.

Dive into the natural wonders of Panglao, Bohol with this private island-hopping tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.

DISCLAIMER: Seeing dolphins on this tour is NOT GUARANTEED. While your guide will try their best to assist you in spotting these creatures, the behavior of these dolphins may sometimes be unpredictable and there is a possibility that you may not encounter one during your tour.
