Discover Bohol’s countryside and its rich marine life on this private day tour. This is perfect for those interested in sightseeing, dolphin & whale shark watching, and seeing different kinds of underwater species all in one day. It is inclusive of roundtrip land and boat transfers, all entrance fees, free use of snorkeling mask and gear, a shared Loboc River Cruise lunch, and the services of a guide. 

You will meet up with your guide in the morning at your accommodation within Tagbilaran City. When you and your guide arrive at the boat docking location, your island-hopping adventure will officially begin. Once you’re settled with your life vests, you will make your way to the dolphin playground to catch sight of some dolphins. 

You will have a knowledgeable spotter with you to help you identify the dolphins. If you're lucky, you could come across several dolphins that will entertain you by performing stunts or swimming alongside your boat. Take as many pictures as you like of these cheeky creatures playing in the water.

After dolphin viewing, your boatman will transport you to Pamilacan Island, which has the highest concentration of coral. Take your snorkeling gear and dive into the waters to explore the underwater world of the island.

After you've finished snorkeling, you may relax on the island's white-sand beaches. Stroll down the beach, snap photos, or lie down and let the sun dry the seawater from your skin. Enjoy the fresh local lunch at the Loboc River, one of the cleanest rivers in the country. The river, which flows past Loay Bridge, Loboc Church, and Busay Falls, has risen in popularity among visitors over the years owing to its river cruises.

You will then start the countryside tour and head to the Chocolate Hills next, which are cone-shaped hills that turn brown in the summer months. Climb the steps to the observation deck and take in the amazing vista of this iconic location.

You will then visit the Tarsier Conservation Area to see the tiniest primates. You will be able to observe them in their natural environment. The sanctuary is committed to their protection. 

From there, you will either make your way to Baclayon Church or Sta. Monica Church, where you can spend some time praying and contemplating. Your last activity for the day is souvenir shopping. Buy souvenirs from various stores for your friends and family before heading back to the hotel.

Have a great time in Bohol's countryside and Pamilacan island with this private full-day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.

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