El Nido Island hopping

2013 November, The Long Trip - Philippines, El Nido

I didn't book any tour in advance. I' just went to El Nido before 9 am and asked if they had any tour available. They did so I booked a tour C. Extra charge 6% for credit card payments.


They told me that it would have been a snorkeling tour. Afterwards, I wasn't sure. Stops were at Helicopter Island (snorkeling), Matinlock Shrine, Star Beach (snorkeling), Secret Beach and Hidden Beach.

Firstly, we went to the Helicopter Island. On the northern site we had our time for snorkeling. It was a place worth seeing, a lot of fish. The stop was 30 minutes long but it was enough as the place was crowded. Next stop was at the Matinlock Shrine with an abandoned 'house' which for me was more like a hotel building not a house. We only visited this place, no snorkeling. Inside I found many religious artefacts. We snorkelled nearby the Star Beach. It was an amazing place. Unfortunately, water was full of a lot of small jellyfish and it wasn't pleasant to snorkel. Despite it, the views were breathtaking. I saw an anemone fish 'NEMO' and a lot of different species. We had also a delicious lunch there. The last two stops were at the Secret Beach where we swam via a tunnel to a crowded place and the last place was at the Hidden Beach which wasn't a perfect place for snorkeling but I saw a hidden sting ray.
