The boat ride takes about 30 to 45 minutes, passes through an enchanting mangrove forest, and leads you to the magnificent cave. Once you reach the cave, your guide will take you on a guided tour of the underground river, where you can marvel at the natural rock formations and the diverse fauna found within the cave. Be amazed by the beauty of the stalactites and stalagmites that took thousands of years to form.

After the underground river tour, you will return to Sabang Wharf to enjoy a sumptuous lunch and some free time to explore the area. You can visit the nearby beach, swim, or relax under the sun.

You will also make a stopover at Buenavista Viewdeck, where you can take in the stunning panoramic view of Ulugan Bay and the surrounding mountain ranges. Here you can take photos and enjoy the fresh air. Later, you will be brought to your hotel, marking the end of your experience.
