Explore the beautiful islands of El Nido, Palawan with this private speedboat tour. This tour is perfect for travelers looking for a unique experience of going around the postcard-worthy islands with their friends and family. Travel worry-free as it also comes with hotel transfers, entrance and eco-tourism development fees, life jackets, and access to El Nido Yachting Club's private beach. If you have your own snorkeling gear, remember to bring them as borrowing snorkeling equipment is not allowed for safety reasons.

The tour will be roughly 7 hours and start when your driver fetches you from your hotel within El Nido, Corong-Corong, Las Cabanas, or the Lio Tourism Estate. You will then get off at the jump-off point to board the speedboat. Please take note that the stops on this tour will depend on the weather conditions but will usually include visits to Hidden Beach, Matinloc Shrine, Helicopter Island, and El Nido Yachting Club's private island, Star Beach.

True to its name, Hidden Beach is secluded and bordered by tall karst cliffs, making it impossible for boats to reach it. Instead, you will have to rent a kayak or swim directly through an opening in the limestone wall to set foot on the beach. Upon reaching the sand, you will be surrounded by the karst landscape and the lush forest on the beach. 

Matinloc Shrine is located atop Matinloc Island and offers a panoramic view of the nearby islets and the surrounding azure waters. The shrine comprises 12 pillars with an image of the Virgin Mary standing in the center. History buffs can learn about the area's heritage at the island's mini-museum. 

Helicopter Island's real name is Dilumacad Island, but it's more known as the former because it is shaped like a helicopter. Here, you can find the Dilumacad Tunnel, an underwater cave that goes on for 40 meters. As you swim through it, you will also come across marine life such as lionfish, cleaner shrimp, and pipefish that have made homes in this hideaway.  

Star Beach is a private island exclusively for El Nido Yachting Club guests. Here you can enjoy the ambiance of an uncrowded beach. Feel free to use the sunbeds, lounge chairs, and umbrellas here as you take in the sights from this undisturbed paradise. Make sure to pack a hearty lunch as well so you can enjoy it on the shore as you watch the waves. 

Join this luxurious trip around El Nido for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Check the availability by choosing a date.
