Overview
Discover Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park on a full-day tour that includes an underground river cruise and lunch, with the option to add an exciting caving and ziplining experience. Including door-to-door transport from hotels in downtown Puerto Princesa, this underground river tour takes the hassle out of exploring a fascinating landscape of caves, forests, and sea coast.
Highlights
  • See native wildlife on an underground river day trip from Puerto Princesa
  • Choose between shared and private tours
  • Includes lunch and hotel transfers
  • Try caving and ziplining with an optional upgrade
What to Expect
From your hotel in downtown Puerto Princesa you’ll be transported to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, pausing for views of Ulugan Bay along the way. After arriving at Sabang Wharf, continue to the mouth of the cave by boat, watching for the monitor lizards, monkeys, snakes, and other wildlife that thrive within the protected national park. Then you’ll enter the underground river on a paddle boat, traveling into a shadowy passageway with rock formations on every side. After you re-emerge into the sunshine, visit a Sabang restaurant for an included lunch of Filipino cuisine, served just outside the national park. If you’ve booked the spelunking and ziplining option, you’ll spend the afternoon climbing, scrambling, and soaring through the air before returning to your Puerto Princesa hotel.

The caves are indeed beautiful and our tour guide, Ecco, was amazing. He was very knowledgable and friendly. However, I don't think it was worth the extremely uncomfortable ride from Puerto Princesa. Be aware that you will be cramped up in a minibus filled with other tourists,

Hi, ivonnes75, Thank you for your feedback about your Underground River Tour. We are happy to know that you enjoyed the activity and that your tour guide has been knowledgeable and friendly - it is one of the strengths of this activity. On the other hand, we regret that the transport to and from Sabang have been uncomfortable. We are doing our best to ensure that our guests receive the best possible service and your feedback will surely help us in achieving that. Again, thank you for sharing your experience.

Breathtaking. Absolutely beautiful and so much fun. It was so much more than we expected. The staff are so friendly and organized. The zipline was so much fun. We loved every minute of it. I would recommend to travel light. Don't carry too much stuff in a bag or backpack.
