Port Barton Palawan Island Hopping Shared Tour with Lunch

This tour is the perfect choice for beach lovers and adventurers who love exploring the natural sights in the area. Your pick-up point for this tour will be within San Vicente, Palawan. After boarding the tour vehicle, you will be taken to the port where a boat awaits. You will then set sail to the most prominent snorkeling site of the village of Port Barton – the Twin Reef. The reef is packed with a massive number of fishes you can swim along with while underwater. There are also hundreds of marine life waiting for you at Wide Reef. The reef is named as such as it covers a vast area, where you get to see a thriving life underwater. The place is home to corals of different sizes and shapes, along with occasional sea turtles swimming by the area. Compared to the Twin Reef, the water in Wide Reef is much deeper. After snorkeling at the reefs, you will go on a short island hopping tour. You will first step foot on Exotic Island. Here, you will find powdery-white sand with crystalline water surrounding the place. There are also schools of fishes by the shore, along with colorful coral reefs. You can even visit the nearby island just by swimming as only a narrow channel separates the two landmasses. Your last stop will be on German Island, where you can also meet a wide variety of fishes, turtles, and corals as well. The site also offers beautiful sceneries and a peaceful environment where you are free to relax.  Dive into the depths of Port Barton waters and see what surprises the area has for you.
