Cruise along the El Nido waters on a private speedboat on this island-hopping tour A to spots like the Big Lagoon or Small Lagoon . This is a perfect experience for groups who prefer a faster and private tour as you will have the boat to yourselves. The package also includes the service of a guide, environmental fees, and a buffet lunch with drinks. 

Head over to the floating dock in the El Nido town proper on the morning of your scheduled tour to meet up with your guide for the day. Next, you will all hop on the speedboat that will take you to some of El Nido’s best shores. Make sure to follow the necessary safety precautions throughout the tour, such as wearing a life vest. When you’re ready to go, you can then choose between the Big Lagoon or Small Lagoon as your first destination. 

Both natural pools are similar and boast crystal-clear blue waters. Their main differences are their size and how you can get to each lagoon. For the Big Lagoon, the entrance is wide enough for a boat to enter, making it easy for travelers to reach it. On the other hand, the Small Lagoon can only be entered via a small opening between the limestone cliffs that border it. To get inside, you will have to get off the boat and either swim or ride a kayak through the gap. 

After your time in either of the lagoons, you will go to the Secret Lagoon. As its name suggests, this natural pool is not easily spotted as it is carefully surrounded by limestone cliffs as well. Similar to the Small Lagoon, you will have to go through a small opening between the cliffs to enter it. Next on the itinerary is a stop at Shimizu Island, popular for its white-sand beach and thriving marine ecosystems. It is also a perfect spot to enjoy your lunch and have a break. 

From there, you will travel to Entalula Island. Prepare to plunge into the cool waters here to get a glimpse of the vibrant coral gardens underneath the surface. Finally, you will end your tour at the Seven Commandos Beach. Boasting a stunning white-sand beach, limestone cliffs, and tall palm trees, it is a great spot to lounge and take in the tropical scenery before heading back.
