    Luggage and bags: Beach Bag, a "rubber ducky" (it's a brand of a bag that can float in the water) as much as possible since exploring the place would be via boat where you can get wet if the waves are strong. To keep all your things / valuables protected.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It is advisable to wear your swimming attire upon leaving for Island Hopping.
    Aqua shoes is a must have when climbing Kayangan Lake and Barracuda Lake - you can wear slippers but the hike could be really slippery.
    Fins / Aqua shoes - when snorkeling in Coral Garden. There are sea urchins around the area.

    Photo Equipment: Extra Battery for the Island tour, Underwater camera since most of the trips would be snorkeling.

    Miscellaneous: Bring lot's of cash since there are no ATM machines within town. And only few accepts credit card.
