We stayed at Movenpick in Lapu Lapu which offered mediocre services in general. We were looking at some nice island hopping nearby and found this guy, Raul Barrientos, who hangs outside the hotel. He sold us a nice island hopping day for PHP 3,500 for two which included the boat ride, snorkeling equipment and drinks (soft and beers).
We visited three islands, did some snorkeling and spent a great day. The third island was actually where we stopped for lunch. We chose fresh catches of the day: squid, prawns and clams and got them grilled for PHP 1,500.
I want to pinpoint the fact that when you're a couple (i.e. only two) you do get charged around PHP 5,000 per head for the same trip, which is outrageously expensive.
However, by looking a little outside the beaten tracks one can find reasonable prices outside. I am more than happy to recommend this guy and you can call him on [--]. He hangs around Movenpick and Shangri La. He also have a bunch of other water activities we did not try but appear to be at a lower price than those proposed by the hotels.
