The starting point of this tour package is in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Make sure that you book a flight or transfer to Puerto Princesa (not included in the package) the day before the tour starts. 

On Day 1 at midnight, head to Jollibee near Adventist Hospital, close to Robinsons Place Puerto Princesa, for your meet-up. By 12:15 AM, you will depart from Puerto Princesa to Buliluyan Port in Balatraza. Make sure you're on time, as the van arrives exactly at midnight.

The first stop of this Balabac, Palawan island hopping tour is Canimeran Island. It's a small island with palm trees, white sand, and clear blue waters. The next destination is Patawan Island, also known as Dolphin Island, because of its sandbar that resembles a dolphin shape. Enjoy its gorgeous sandbar and snorkel in the colorful coral reefs. You’ll also have your lunch here.

Then, head to Tangkahan Island. It has a beautiful sandy beach, tall palm trees, and different shades of blue in the water. Take lots of pictures before heading to Balabac Town Proper for registration. 

Check into JD Lodge for the night. Relax in your comfy room and enjoy dinner before lights out by 10 PM. Get up early the next day and have breakfast before you go on another Balabac island-hopping tour. Your first stop is Candaraman Island, with its cream-colored sand, clear blue waters, and tall palm trees. Don't miss the nearby Starfish Sandbar, where you can spot starfish during low tide.

Next, explore Onok Island, famous for its beautiful beach and colorful marine life. Walk along the charming stilted pathway, swim, snorkel, or just relax on the beach. If you're lucky, you might even spot sea turtles! After having lunch and dinner on the island, you have the option to spend the night at a kubo (cottage) for an extra fee to fully enjoy the island experience.

Get up early, have breakfast, and prepare for your last island hopping tour on Day 4. You’ll first visit Mansalangan Sandbar, which is connected to Byan Island. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along this beautiful and expansive sandbar.
