Half-Day Panglao Island Tour

Panglao Island is the largest of Bohol Provinces satellite island. Connected by a land bridge to the main island, Panglao is just 15 minutes away from the capital city of Tagbilaran. This half day tour takes you to the Church of our Lady of the Assumption in the town of Dauis.

With its Gothic architecture, the church is an imposing structure with the sea and watch tower at its back. Next, we proceed to Hinagdanan Cave, the most easily accessible among the caves of Bohol. Classified as a karst cave, it boasts of a large number of stalactites and stalagmites and leads to an underground spring pool.

We were picked up directly from the beach by our hotel by boat. About email directly with organizer clarified for pickup. We were lucky and alone. At first it was Delphine looking for. Also lucky and saw dolphins like 20 other boats. (Guide call each other where the dolphins are, so very busy with boats) also had luck on the reef and saw two turtles with which you could swim. Also there full of other tourists. Had our own Schnorchelzeug and therefore can not assess how the loaned is. You can also rent an actionkamara on the reef for little money to make underwater photos. (Can be that you own a memory card need) we had our own camera so do not know if that is and is worth it.

private boat tour. snorkeling around the reefs was amazing. after the booking I got a confirmation of the local tour guide with the pickup details. unfortunately the transfer from our hotel in panglao to the pier wasn't free as they wrote. we had to pay 150 peso extra one way. but the tour itself was still amazing.

Alice was wonderful! Such a lovely lady that made all aspects of the tour super enjoyable, relaxed and interesting! Lovely way to explore little gems of Panglao in a chilled way.
