Kudos to our driver Kuya Ren Ren who picked us up on time at 5AM in our hotel in Cebu City going to Moalboal and had to drop us off back at around 9:30PM! He was very ineractive and allowed us to take pictures to beautiful landscapes along the way. Overall, both the island hopping and canyoneering were very tiring, but worth it! I recommend getting this activity from Mcrich Canyoneering! They provide the best service and has approachable tour guides!
If you want to make the most out of your time, this tour is something you should definitely consider. Starting from Cebu City, my driver Alfredo picked me up at the hotel right on time. Alfredo drove very good and always ensured that I was feeling comfortable. He also stopped at McDonald‘s to ensure that I won‘t start the tour hungry. The island hopping was also nice. I‘ve seen a lot of sardines and giant turtoise. For the canyoneerig my guide Eloy was very experienced and always ensured that I would stay safe & have a lot of fun. He also ensured that I‘ll have enough photos of the trip. Alltogether they made me have an awesome day.
Driver came early and picked us up on time, even asked the hotel to give us a call when he didn't see us. Tour guide for the Moalboal island hopping was extremely helpful. He helped my friend (who can't swim) a lot during the snorkeling sessions. He also made sure that we had the best experience. For e.g., when I saw a sea turtle from afar, he helped me get up close to it by literally pushing me towards the sea turtle. He also offered many times to capture footages with my gopro :)). We were also very fortunate to see dolphins as the tour guides were very familiar with the location. We saw the sardine run too which was amazing. Total of 3 dive sites, 30 mins each:) Lunch was provided (food was good!). Afterwards, we went for the canyoneering adventure. We opted for the full canyoneering course and there was an option to take the zipline for an extra fee (can't rmb how much but not expensive) instead of hiking 30min to the first jump, super fun!! the canyoneering itself was easily another 3 hours hike down, with several jumps in between, before reaching kawasan falls :) the day was packed with activities from 8am to 5pm, so it was quite tiring, but extremely fun :) would definitely recommend going for this tour!!! We arranged our pick up from Cebu city and drop off at Oslob (for an additional surcharge of 1000 pesos), please email the tour agency beforehand to arrange. I arranged it one day before my tour and they were quick to respond.
This was the best activity we have done in the Phillipines!! It was that good! Everything ran smoothly, picked up around 4.30am, started with island hopping, sardine run and swimming with turtles. This was all incredible and was done by 9am. Then on to the canyoneering, we did the biggest zip line in South Asia to start, then trekked, jumped and swam through some amazing scenes!! Tour guide Jason was the best!! If you are in Cebu you have to do this!!
The tour was set 2 hours earlier than mentioned in the package, which is a good thing because the traffic from Moalboal to Cebu City was terrible. It would’ve been worse if we left at a later time. The driver and the tour guides were all friendly. Shoes, helmet, and life vest were provided, as well as a complete meal (veggies, meat, soup and rice). Pescador island hopping was surreal. It was amazing to see different types of fish and corals. Canyoneering was soooo worth it. It made me appreciate nature more than I did before. The experience was not like any other. Not recommended for very young and very old individuals though. Overall, great experience. Two thumbs up!
The guide cannot really speak in English so we have trouble communicating with him or to get more infos from him but that is fine. He drove us early in the morning from Cebu to reach Moalboal around 6.30 am. We have to wait before we can start our island hopping. It was only two of us on the boat and the guide is so friendly, super helpful and we are amazed with their diving skill! The coral there is so much beautiful and pristine than in Mactan and lapu-lapu area! We loveeeee the sardines part! It is sooo beautiful!! Even tho it was a short 2 hours island hopping for 3 places, this is more than enough already.
After that, lunch is served. We made a request to have seafood for lunch as we cannot eat other meat, they are okay with that and prepare us fried fish and rice.
Badian canyoneering is totally WORTH and it is the HIGHLIGHT of our trip. I have never jump from 12m cliff but the guide was helpful to make us feels okay to jump! He even helped us to take all photos and videos with our gopro. Totally worth it!!
