What to Expect
• Guests will be picked up from their hotel within Puerto Princesa City Proper via shared AC Vehicle

• Once all guests are complete, tour group travels to Honda Bay wharf with a short stop-over at a rental shop where guests can optionally rent some items like snorkeling gears, finds, beach towels or buy water and chips

• At Honda Bay wharf, tour guide will process all necessary paperwork to get boat assignment. 

• All guests will board same boat going to the islands and start the tour which usually covers starfish island, Luli Island and Cowrie Island with lunch in one of the islands

• Starfish Island is the usual first stop where guests can enjoy snorkeling, swimming and picture taking. It is called starfish island because of the presence of sea stars that are just laying around the area. 

• Next stop is Luli Island, short for "Lulubog-Lilitaw" Filipino words meaning sinking and floating because at hightide the whole sandbar is completely submerged in seawater while at low tide the long stretch of sandbar is visible. Guests can enjoy swimming and snorkeling in this island too 

• Last stop is Cowrie island where guests can enjoy swimming or relax at their bar and order some mixed drinks. This is also the washup or shower area.

• After the cowrie island, guests will ride the same boat going back to Honda Bay Port and will be shuttled back to their respective hotels

• Estimated End Time is between 3-4pM

• Note that itinerary is subject to change depending on weather conditions. Not all islands are accessible during rough seas conditions as determined by the Philippine Coast Guard on the day of the tour. This is specially the case for Starfish island.
