We loved this tour. We visited 4 islands Luli, forgot the 2nd one -was a reef, starfish island, and Cowrie. My husband snorkeled on the reef and I joined him on starfish. Our boatmen gave us a pack of bread to feed the fish with and they went wild, they really do come and circle you for the bread. OMG!... More

We were lucky enough to have great weather for the tour. They took us to 3 islands, each island had something different to do. The first one was 2hrs for snorkelling and lunch, 1hr at the next to jump off a diving board and have a swim, 3rd island was 2hrs of relaxing with places to buy food, alcohol and... More

The trip is a rip off really. Every island charges an entrance fee and they are not even that great. Don't book the trip through your hotel just take a trike to the boat area and hire your own banca. If you are 1 or 2 people you should be able to find someone to share with. My advice would... More

While the arrival and boat transfer process is unnerving, once you are on the boat, it's smooth outriggering. Loved the little islands they brought us too. Maybe too long on the island with one monkey but loved the adventure.

Beautiful blue waters and interesting seafood delicacies to be had. While lunch was included in the tour, we opted to buy from the local vendors in the beach. Local abalone, lobster crab and scallops were available for purchase . The kitchen staff cooked these fresh seafood for us. Yummy stuff.

Had buffet lunch cowrie island then island hopping. Best part was snorkeling in starfish and luli (lulubog-lilitaw) island. If you're planning to go here don't worry about the gears there are gear rentals everywhere.

Visited 3 different Islands and a nice trip overall. The wait time was very minimal so it was even better, all the Islands were very clean and all had nice beaches, the first Island however was very rocky but OK.

This is must do if you are in palawan, Honda bay is not very nice in itself however you'll only really go there to island hop or get on about to go diving. We chose the island hop and it was fantastic. Beautiful views of Palawan island from the see and the islands we visited were gorgeous with white sand.... More

Starfish island should've been the longest tour. Our tour guide was horribly disorganised and unprofessional, but the views made up for it. Still hated him though.
