Boracay island hopping is a good opportunity to explore the islands surrounding this famous tropical escape, many of which have secluded beaches and a fascinating underwater paradise. Whether you prefer to laze around on the beach or go on an adrenaline-pumping adventure, you'll be sure to have a wonderful time.

You can simply lounge around the boat while taking in the marvellous sights or jump into the waters and get up close with native fish. You can explore hidden coves and caves, marvel at some stunning rock formations, walk barefoot on the finest coral sand, or jump from a limestone cliff.
