Go on an action-packed day enjoying fun water-based activities in Boracay Island on this island hopping tour, with banana boat riding and helmet diving included in the itinerary. Depending on the seasonal wind and tide conditions, you will visit several natural attractions, namely Ilig-Iligan Beach, Crocodile Island, Starfish Garden, Coral Garden, Balinghai Beach, Puka Beach, and Tabon. The hotel pick up and drop off points are within Boracay Island’s station 1,2 or 3, with the tour planned over 6 hours.
The tropical climate in Boracay is generally the same year-round. However, the months of June to November fall within the Habagat or wet season. The strong winds coming in from southwestern regions means that it is the ideal time to cover 3 areas on your visit starting with Ilig-Iligan, which is located along the district of Yapak and roughly 3.4km away from the White Beach Station 1 by land. This public beach is in a less crowded area and is known for the bat caves, cliffs, and beautiful clear waters. Next up is Crocodile island, about 7 km away from Ilig-Iligan and is shaped like the reptile it is named after. It’s a nice spot for snorkeling and diving, as is Starfish Garden, the final destination of the tour.
If you’re in Boracay between December to May, it’s the Amihan season, which is when the cool northeasterly wind blows into the island. The tour begins with Coral Garden, a famous diving spot situated in the middle of Boracay’s west coast, just 500m away from White Beach Station 2. You’ll also go to Balinghai Beach, a secluded cove that is found on the northern tip of the island, and then cap off your trip day at Puka Beach.
Included in this tour is helmet diving, a unique underwater experience that allows you to explore the ocean floor while wearing a helmet of compressed air. Even non-swimmers can enjoy swimming with tropical fish and participate in various activities under the sea, with an expert to guide you throughout. You’ll also get a chance to go on an adrenaline-charged banana boat ride above water, where you’ll hop aboard a stable inflatable boat pulled by a motorboat across Boracay’s famous pristine waters near the shoreline.
This island hopping tour of Boracay also includes the use of life jackets, snorkeling gear, and a serving of lunch at Tabon Beach. Check availability by choosing a date.
