What people are saying about El Nido
Tour B was amazing. At first we were apprehensive because many travellers, hotel owners, and people we met said tour B was the worst one and not very good. But, this is the best thing about tour B. There are very few tourists, only five people on our boat, beautiful destinations, and a lovely day out. After doing all four tours, we found tour B was our favourite compared the the other very busy, overcrowded, and commercial other tours. The only thing to note is that I wouldn't recommend booking online for these tours. El Nido is full of tour shops who offer these tours for a cheaper price with things like wet shoes, kayaks, and snorkelling equipment all included in the price. Every tour we went on that we booked online we had to pay extra to hire these things.
Come prepared for going in the water immediately, as you will need to get water to waist/chest level just to get started with the tour. Bring your own reef shoes or rent from them at the beginning of the tour. We had a great and fun guide, which helped us spend a great time and was a master at avoiding the crowds. Loved the hidden and the big lagoon, as well as just chilling in some of the islands. Great day all around if you have some time by El Nido. PS: I love how much they care about keeping the whole area clean and forbid any type of plastics to be brought in.
This trip is an unforgettable experience. We went to the Small Lagoon though instead of the Big Lagoon (the guide never clarified why) but we forgave him because the place is great! The only issue is the boat that ferried us does not have any first aid kit. Three of us got varying degrees of abrasions from sharp rocks in both the Shimizu Island and Secret Lagoon (the waves made it even more difficult to traverse both sites safely). Expect a large crowd on every stop and bring your action or waterproof camera (recommended).
The tour was extremely well organized. Despite a slightly late pick-up we arrived well on time in El Nido. The boat company were great, we were told 5 stops and we got them. No rushing and ample time to enjoy each spot. The scenery is stunning and really good snorkeling and beaches. Lunch is cooked and served on the boat. They put a lot of emphasis on safety and we were well looked after during the day. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. Well worth the price and journey.
a great Variety of difference beaches. make sure you have enough Cash to buy beers and cooldrinks during the trip. the Guide Chris was great and he used his inside knowledge to avoid the big crowds. A huge plus as it made us feel like the only people there. the food was fantastic and the whole day was great.
