Enjoy a private tour of Davao’s beautiful island attractions, complete with transfers to ensure a thorough but comfortable whole-day adventure.
Scheduled every Monday to Friday, the tour includes pickup service from your accommodation in Davao City. You will then head to Samal to see fantastic beaches and natural attractions that have made the island-city famous the world over.
Your first stop is Hagimit Falls, a series of streams that cascade to numerous pools in the middle of a rainforest. Surrounded by a canopy of trees and nipa huts, the falls are an ideal picnic area and one that guarantees a refreshing swim.
This tour, however, promises loads more to see. Next is the Monfort Bat Sanctuary, a 75-meter-long cave that is home to a colony of about 2.3 million Rousette fruit bats. You will also visit a mango orchard that offers a kawa or cauldron bath experience before visiting the Precious Garden of Samal.
Your next activities include a stop at the scenic Vanishing Island and snorkeling at the Taklobo Giant Clam Sanctuary. A long strip of white sand that only surfaces at low tide, the Vanishing Island is distinct from sandbars because of its collection of low-hanging trees. These seem to float when the high tide comes in.
The giant clam sanctuary, meanwhile, houses more than 3,700 giant clams across 14 hectares. While it is a protected reserve, guests are welcome to swim, snorkel, and take pictures underwater.
En route back toward Davao City, your boat will pass by a few more famous islands that, while exclusive, have been definitive attractions in Samal. First is the breathtaking Pearl Farm Resort in Malipano Island, the quaint but lush Dela Paz Island, and the Wishing Island Marine Sanctuary, the latter two known as diving destinations.
This whole-day private tour of Davao’s key island and land attractions will be led by an English-speaking local guide and come inclusive of admission fees to applicable attractions. Check availability now by choosing a date.
