Pack your swimsuits and camera when you join this island hopping trip to Bohol’s Balicasag and Virgin Islands from Panglao Island. Bohol's islands are famous for their pristine white beaches and dolphin and turtle sightings. This shared tour is perfect for solo travelers and beach lovers looking to explore the province’s most beautiful islands.
Once the driver picks you up from your hotel in either Tagbilaran or Panglao in the morning, you will head straight to the port, where you will ride an outrigger boat to reach Balicasag Island. Before boarding the boat, you will be oriented about the day’s activities, so you can maximize your time in the islands.
Balicasag Island is known for its marine sanctuary with powdery sand and aquamarine waters. It has six diving sites, making it well known to locals and tourists alike. Here you can snorkel around to see the teeming underwater life. Aside from snorkeling, you can also do fish feeding.
If you opt to do dolphin watching, an expert dolphin spotter will join you. Previously a hotspot for dolphin hunters, Balicasag adopted a more sustainable livelihood by shifting from dolphin hunting to eco-tourism.
From Balicasag, you will go to the famous Turtle Point, where there are numerous sightings of the pawikan or giant turtle. Wear your snorkeling gear and see how these creatures go about underwater.
After being treated to fun-filled water activities, you will go to Virgin Island, where you can lounge on the powdery white sand or swim in its pristine waters. Take out your camera and pose against the backdrop of the sky and the shore. This is also the best time to make friends with the others joining this tour to make a more memorable experience.
