Palawan: Island Hopping at Honda Bay

No comments:

Our last minute activity in Puerto Princesa Palawan was a do-it-yourself island hopping tour at Honda Bay before we fly out in the evening. Three islands in two hours, is it possible? With only three hours to spare, we weren't sure island hopping is a good idea. Ferald and I were like, it's now or never, discussing the pros and cons over lunch at KaLui. We actually packed our beach essentials in the morning when we're leaving the hotel for the half day city tour just in case we decided to do it. In the end, we did it anyway because we'll never know when next time could be. #yolo

After our scrumptious lunch at KaLui, we headed to Honda Bay alight a tricycle with the same manong driver we hired when we went for firefly watching the day before. Color coded tricycles are the most common form of transportation you can hire in the city if you're not on a package tour.

More than half an hour later, we reached the wharf. It was around 2:00 pm.

We hurriedly register at the port counter, paid the fees, and rented a boat operated by two boatmen for 1300 pesos. Rates are fixed and all are the same even with different boat operators as it was set and approved by the municipal government.

We were told that we need to get back by 4:00 pm. Three island for two hours, is it possible? The answer is a big fat yes. Allow me show you how we did it.
