One of the most popular activities to enjoy whilst in Cebu is the Island Hopping Trip! A fun treat for the whole family all year round Island Hopping Trips are simply a must do during your Cebu vacation.
The Deluxe Island Hopping trip is an opportunity to discover the scenic delights of the tiny islands that are found in the Hilutungan Channel close to Mactan. These picturesque islands are like little jewels set amongst the sapphire sea and are home to beautiful sandy beaches, shady interiors and even small beachside restaurants.
Take a private cruise through the islands on a motorized boat locally known as a “Banca” and spend your day snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing. Stop wherever you want and take a refreshing dip in the clear sea. It’s an idyllic tropical way to pass the time and an easy going boat journey is the perfect way to travel round these islands.
Several of the islands have protected Marine Sanctuaries and guests are rewarded with the chance to see the amazingly rich and varied underwater world of Cebu. Take time out to relax and enjoy the warm sea breezes and beautiful natural surroundings.
On the way you stop at an island beach for a fun and casual picnic lunch of grilled seafoods, chicken or pork with local fresh fruits and deserts.
The boat makes calls at three of the following islands: Hilutungan, Nalusuan, Gilutungan, Caohagan and Pandanon and the whole day is one of relaxation and fun for the whole family.
Guests for Cebu Island Hopping activities are collected from their Cebu City or Mactan island resort or hotel at approximately 08:00am and transferred to the boat start point and returned to resort after their trip.
Suitable for the whole family.
