Water is full of garbage, muddy, no fish or coral, day is spent getting there and waiting at the pier for dozens of boats to come in and pick up tourists. Lunch was disgusting.

We was suppose to go to the underground river, but due to bad weather in the mountains the trip was canceled and we was offered to go on a island hopping trip instead in Hondabay. We got picked up at 08 by a minivan and I think we drove through whole Puerto Princesa to pick up other guests. Finally around... More

We had a boat to ourselves and the captain and the deckhand snorkelled with us to show us the best areas to see the fish... More

Spent few hours with friends going back and forth from one island to the other. Took a small boat equipped with life vest and skillful sailors. Did some snorkeling and saw some beautiful fishes but unfortunately could not see corals and reefs. A perfect place for swimming and playing along the beautiful white sandy beaches. Wish some banana boats or... More

In my opinion, that was by far the best tour in Puerto Princesa. That was my first experience snorkeling, which was awesome. The islands are soooo wonderful, totally worthy it! You should definitely take some bread to enhance your experience while snorkeling and attract the beautiful fishes.

We were hoping to do some snorkeling at each stop but the area within which you can snorkel is very restricted & the number of different fish you see limited. I'd wrongly assumed there would be swimming off the boat but this want the case.
