Experience the sardine run in Bohol when you book this private tour. This 3-hour tour already comes with the entrance fee, the assistance of a tour guide, air-conditioned van transfers, and boat transfers for your convenience. The use of snorkeling gear also comes with this tour, but for safety and health reasons, guests who have their own snorkeling gear are encouraged to bring their own.

You can schedule the tour to start as early as 5 AM. The schedule is up to you. If you are staying in a hotel or resort in Panglao Island or Tagbilaran, you just need to wait at your accommodation as your guide will pick you up from there at the scheduled time. Otherwise, you’ll need to meet up with your guide at a designated pick-up spot. 

Your guide will then escort you to the sardine run area in Napaling via land and boat transfers. Located in the northern area of Panglao Island, Napaling is a known dive site in Bohol, but you don’t need to be an experienced diver in order to see the sardine run. You can simply get in the water or swim with the sardines or, for a closer look, snorkel. You’ll get the chance to have thousands upon thousands of sardines surround you. If you have an underwater camera, you may use it to capture the majestic sardine run. 

After experiencing the sardine run, your boat will head back to the mainland, and your driver will bring you back to your hotel or resort in Panglao Island or Tagbilaran or at an agreed-upon drop-off location so you can enjoy the rest of your stay in Bohol on your own.

Swim in the waters of Bohol and see the stunning sardine run in Napaling with this tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
