    Inclusions of this activity is misleading. It says we can snorkel in Balicasag Island Marine Sanctuary and swim with fishes and corals but we were informed that we need to pay PHP700 per person to do this. We understand we need to pay extra for the Turtle Watching activity as add on and it was clearly stated on the voucher. But we should have been allowed to snorkel for free. We went to Balicasag Island and did nothing because we were not prepared and did not bring enough cash for the activities. We thought we got it all covered before the island hopping activity but to our disappointment, we stayed in the island for just 10 minutes because we have nothing to do. No photos here because all we did was use the island's restrooms for a Php10-fee. Many approached us to pay Php250 to swim with the fishes, Php250 to swim with the corals, Php250 to swim with the turtle PLUS 100 for the rent of snorkel gear, 100 for the shoes. EACH PERSON. Please update your inclusions and be transparent with the activities included. Also, for the dolphin watching, we were so far away from the other boats where the dolphins were swimming. It's like we are watching from afar. Then our boatman just rushingly drove to Balicasag Island saying that there are too many boats to get close and we couldn't even enjoy the dolphin watching moment. We understand if there are no dolphins at all, but there were! And a lot because we can see the other boats patiently looking and waiting for the sightings. This was very disappointing. Ramil was easy to contact so I gave him that one star rating. He was kind enough to refund Php700 for the add on Turtle Watching that we were not able to use. We thought that the Php700 add on was for the entire group already for the turtle watching activity but it's just for one. I suggest you revise your inclusions/activities. Php2250 (for 1-5 persons) is only for the boat rent, boatman, island hopping (Balicasag and Virgin Island, Dolphin Watching), and life vest for all passengers. ADD ON PHP700 each person if you want to swim with the corals, fishes, and turtles plus snorkling gears. That will be very helpful and clear when tourists plan to avail of this package in the future. The highlight of this island hopping is the snorkling activity at Balicasag Island. If you will not do this, your stay at Balicasag will be useless. I know as I have been here once but for a DIY trip and I was able to enjoy much and afford this activity and had no problems at all. This time I brought my family to experience this and we thought this package deal with Klook will be very useful and easy to avail but it was not.

    Overall it was a good experience. A mixed bag of positives and negatives. We were off to a bad start- the pickup was 30mins late. I tried calling numerous times but he didn't answer our phone calls. The guide also hardly said a word to us during the entire trip. Thereafter it was a great experience. The dolphin viewing, turtle watching and snorkeling were fantastic. It's a bit pricey but reasonable considering you have the boat to yourself and can decide how much time to spend at each attraction. The communication after making the booking is very good.

    We didnt’t have a hard time meeting up with our boatman. They were right on time and even met us at our hotel. We enjoyed the snorkeling activity but then again, too many tourists. 😂 thats just the downnside for every activity we booked. But all in all, we are so satisfied!
  • Russell 3 Feb 2019
    We weren't able to see/watch dolphins because of the weather. Balicasag Island was a bit crowded (and small pieces of trash are everywhere - not the operator's fault but of irresponsible tourists), but it was still a good sight. We had to cut our tour short because of our flight back (so no virgin island/sandbar, too, which surfaces, we were told by boatmen, around 11:00 am).

    The boatman arrived on time. An additional entrance fee must be prepared (5 pesos per person) We leave Danao beach at around 5:45 am.
  • Siu Hong janicson 21 Jan 2019
    Can’t believe that we could watch dolphin and sea turtles on the same day! Of course~ a lot of fishes around us! There were more than a hundred dolphins swimming around our boat, this was really amazed! And we watch 2 sea turtles which the size were big! The boatman said everything depended on luck and weather, nothing guarantee.
  • Love Joy 21 Jan 2019
    was not able to see the dolphin cause it was rainy but snorkeling was fun
  • Jhoana Linsey 6 Jan 2019
    We enjoyed seeing the fish under water and the turtles. It will be good if you already include in the payment everything like the snorkell fee and other fees. It just that the boat that we’ve ride is so loud, we should have bring ear plugs 😊 And there’s no public toilet where we can change before we go home.
