Swim amid schools of sardines off the shores of Bohol Island when you book this private tour. This is a perfect experience for those who enjoy snorkeling, as the sardine run is one of the most popular sights in the province. This 3-hour tour already includes the entrance fee, the assistance of a tour guide, complimentary bottled water, boat and van transfers, and free hotel pick-up and drop-off within Panglao Island or Tagbilaran City. 

Your tour starts when your guide fetches you from your accommodation at 8 AM. If you are staying outside of Panglao Island or Tagbilaran City, you'll need to meet up with your guide at a designated pick-up spot. Afterward, you will be escorted to the coast of Napaling, where you will board a boat that'll take you to the sardine run area. Napaling is a known dive site in Bohol in the northern area of Panglao Island, but you don't need to be an experienced diver to get the chance to see the sardine run. 

You can simply get in the water or swim with the sardines. To better look at this natural phenomenon, it's recommended to put on snorkeling gear.  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.

In the water, 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 by booking this private day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
