El Nido Island Hopping Tour C – Guide and Itinerary

February 16, 2016 – it was our first day to actually roam around El Nido Palawan, and just get to know about it. Feel and set foot on what people so called paradise. We were supposed to take the El Nido island Hopping tour A that day, but our friend in El Nido suggested that we take the tour C instead on that day – which was a great idea.

So we did take the advice, and just go for the El Nido Tour C instead that day.

All the island hopping tours in El Nido composed with 5 different destinations, 5 destinations in one (1) day, starting around 8am or 9am till around 5pm. Not sure who did design the itinerary though, but it’s a great idea that they have this kind of tours.

El Nido Island Hopping Tour C: Hidden Beaches and Shrine

The El Nido tour C is composed with three (3) beaches, one (1) island, and a shrine! Yes, a shrine, but not the game of thrones shrine. You’ll get it later after reading this post.

I’ve actually have a different post per destinations for this tour, you may just click on the photos along with the destination name below, and just read it there.

But if you’ll be able to enjoy visuals like a video, you might enjoy the video blog on my YouTube channel instead. Go and play it, and maybe subscribe too!?

But before you do click on that play button, beware that I’m talking there, my ugly and fat face is there, and of course my boring talks is there. But you’ll get the idea what you can expect from the El Nido tour C.

We’ve enjoyed Tour C, and the El Nido island hopping tour C is actually more famous with the Filipinos, and the El Nido tour A is the favorite of the foreigners.

While talking with the fellow tourists on the boat, somebody concluded that the El Nido tour C actually stands for “TOUR CHALLENGE”. The Hidden beach is actually challenging, and the Secret beach is a lot more challenging.

El Nido Island Hopping Tour C Itinerary

Please take note that there might be days or travel agencies that rearrange the tour destinations to avoid a lot of tourists in one destinations – well, there are times that it felt like there are too much tourists in one destination. So the itinerary I’ll be giving you was the one we had on that day, yours might be different, but it should be the same destinations, and may end on the same time. Just to give you an idea.

Please note that I’m not good at time tracking, and if you’ve been reading this travel blog for a while, then you know I’m a sucker at it. So, the time I’ve actually given are estimates that we’re there, or when we’re there, and the time we spent there, plus travel time. 

But all tours will start at around 9:00 am but you must be all assembled at around 8:00 am to meet your boat mates. You’ll just have to walk then since the Northern Hopes Tours office is just a block from the shore, or two.

El Nido Island Hopping Tour C Price

The El Nido tour C rate is the same for all travel agencies in El Nido, it's just then a matter of quality of their services and food served. The tour we took with Northern Hope Tours includes snorkels, lunch, water, and guide for P1,400 per person. And yes, for the whole day, the 8am to 5pm tour.

El Nido Island Hopping Tour C Guide

The El Nido tour C is highly suggested for people who can go for a challenge, I’m not kidding for the challenge word. But it’s not really that hard because the guide will be there for you, plus if you’re a confident swimmer then this wouldn’t be a problem for you.

The office of the Northern Hopes has a stall there where you can borrow a GoPro for a day (yes, a GoPro Hero 4) and the aqua shoes. I totally regret not renting the aqua shoes that day, so if I were you rent an aqua shoes if you don’t have one it’s just P100/day. Snorkels is already included in their tour rates, so no problem there. Fins though can be rented for P100 per day from Artcafe, bring your ID since you’ll be leaving it with them.

If you’ll be taking the tour with a kid, they have smaller life jackets, make sure you have them wear it.
