Boracay Island Boat Tour

Boat Trip PHP1,000/6 hrs. We were lucky to get Totong (Lamberto dela Cruz ) who owns a sturdy boat -Lovelyn-. Some people who offer island hopping service don’t really own boats but act as middle men for those who do. This means more cost for tourists = less fun. Most operators offer 4-hr trips while Totong offered 6-hrs. The basic tour:Crystal Cave Island bat cave, island lunch, Crocodile Island vicinity snorkeling, fish feeding, Puka Beach swimming. At 10:30 am, we headed out to the market to buy charcoal 5/bag, rice 23/kilo, tiger prawns 380/kilo, mussels 30/kilo, giants clams 30/kilo, tiger rock lobster 800/kilo, local lemons 5/bag, margarine 20/tub, bread for fish 10/bag. We paid 50 for registering trip with local government/tourism outpost. His boat was equipped with standard orange lifejackets that can also fit kids. My two kids,7 and 11, fitted perfectly in those orange things. I felt safer knowing Josh, Totong & his two kids 8 and 15 knew how to swim even in their dreams were with us during our trip to the outlying islands. 1st stop: Crystal Cove Island entrance fee 75/adults and 25/kids. After choosing a spot to eat lunch, Totong and his daughter headed out to grill the yummies we bought. Cooking charge:pots 45 & plates/utensils go for 5 a set. 15yr old Jay acted as our guide while going around the island. Walking around meandering pathways filled with plants,beach views of Panay island and the vast ocean on the other side. Cave 1 features a spiral staircase leading to an underground cavern spotted with ivory colored crystals while the cave mouth opens to the sea. One can walk down and swim with blue tongue fishes (Dory of Finding Nemo). You can feed these magnificent fishes while standing on one of the rocks perched near the cave mouth or while floating alongside them. Ropes were conveniently latched to the cave walls so you can easily grab on one for balance. Water was neck level of a 5’9” person at 12 noon so you do the math if you want to dare go down the water.

Helicopter Tours

Yes, you read it right, you can now take an aerial tour around Boracay aboard a 4 seater R44 Raven helicopter. I haven't tried it yet, so I can't comment on whether the rides are as scary as their prices! Tours start at $59 per person for a 'beach tour' and go up to $129.95 for 'sunset VIP tour'. Looks as if it could be fun, but can't see exactly how you'd be able to 'take a stroll' whilst sitting inside such a small chopper (see flyer)!.

Island Tour

Be sure to add the island tour in your itinerary. There are lots of locals who will offer island tours once you walk around the beach. Prices ranges from 1,500-2,000 pesos (around 10pax). It includes snorkling, cave diving and lunch in an island nearby prepared by your operator. They will also offer different kinds of water sports. I suggest you try the banana boat and the fly fish. Normal price for water sports such as these are from 250 pesos per person. Check out my photos for more details =) You can bargain ! Locals are very nice and accomodating so please leave some tips and enjoy the tour.

the Massages are a MUST

There are also whole-day island-hopping picnic tours for P300/person.
Massages at P150/hour are great to end a day (masseuse wear vests and ID's).
