Discover secluded beach locations and visit famous snorkeling sites on this island hopping tour of Boracay island. Join fun action-packed activities like helmet diving and parasailing, both of which are part of the day’s whole day itinerary. You will visit several local attractions depending on the season, namely Ilig-Iligan Beach, Crocodile Island, and Starfish Garden during the months of June to November, and Coral Garden, Balinghai Beach, and Puka Beach outside of those dates. Complimentary hotel transfers are included, with pick up and drop off points at Stations 1,2 or 3 in Boracay.
The Habagat or wet season begins in June and ends in November, so if your visit falls within those months you will visit Ilig-Iligan Beach to start with. Located in the Yapak district, the beach is a quiet alternative to White Beach. Next, you’ll proceed south of Boracay to Crocodile Island. Shaped like the reptile it is named after, the uninhabited atoll is situated about 170m away from Tambisaan jetty port and is a great diving spot. Afterward, you’ll head over to another snorkeling site, Starfish Garden, which is also the final stop on this tour.
If your Boracay trip falls within the months of December to May, then you’re officially in the Amihan season. The climate at this time is slightly cooler, and the itinerary switches to areas that avoid the southwest monsoon winds. The first stop is the famous Coral Garden, known for its colorful marine life and underwater coral reefs that’s ideal for diving and snorkeling. Next is the secluded cove of Balinghai Beach, and then on to Puka Beach, so named for its 800m shoreline where puka shells are abundant.
Included in this package are two water-based activities: helmet diving and parasailing. Helmet diving is a unique underwater experience where you’ll be wearing a helmet of compressed air, allowing you to breathe comfortably as you are lowered several feet below the sea, sometimes reaching the ocean floor. Here you get to swim with fish and see interesting reefs beneath Boracay’s shores. Parasailing, on the other hand, lets you go way up in the air and take flight like a bird. You’ll be securely strapped to a seat with a parachute lifting you up as a motorboat gently pulls you around, allowing you to see the sights from a unique vantage point a few feet above the sea.
Aside from hotel transfers, this 6-hour island hopping tour of Boracay island also includes the use of snorkeling gear, life jacket, and a serving of lunch at Tabon Beach. Check availability by choosing a date.
