Island Hopping Balicasag & Virgin Island (Optional Snorkeling)

Written by Alan Jay on . Posted in Bohol & Cebu Tours, Bohol Marine Tours

Island Hopping Half Day Tour visits both Balicasag & Virgin Islands and offers the option to snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Balicasag Island Marine Sanctuary, where a healthy and diverse marine environment waits to be explored.

Our Island Hopping and Snorkeling Tour starts from the popular Alona Beach. The experienced boat crew will take you to first to Balicasag Island, a small almost circular, flat island approximately 25 hectares in area.

After a relaxing morning swimming / snorkeling or just exploring the island, you can treat yourself to a freshly cooked lunch along the beach front, enjoying the spectacular ocean view.

From Balicasag Island you will cruise to Virgin Island ", a tropical oasis around 20 mins sailing from Alona Beach, Panglao, Bohol. Mainly covered at high tide, at low tide a beautiful white powdery sand bar is exposed, leading to the Island itself, allowing you to explore this beautiful tropical paradise.

To keep the prices low we give all guests the option to tailor the package to their own needs and budget. Perhaps you don’t want to snorkel, or maybe skip lunch, with our package its your choice.
