Got a private boat tour for most of the Tour A highlights which was very convenient as we were able to leave early and miss most of the tourist boats arriving.

The lagoon is absolutely gorgeous and despite all the people so quiet as everyone is in awe of the beautiful surroundings which completely dwarf you on the kayak.

Definitely one of the highlights of El Nido!

This is the first stop in our Tour A package. Once you arrive, there are kayaks for rent so you can go inside the small lagoon. We don't have enough daily exercise so we were kinda tired in the beginning as we keep on paddling towards the lagoon! You can snorkel around if you come back early or if you don't want to go inside the lagoon. You have to paddle by yourself if you are with a child or an elderly. So make sure you have enough power for this!

Like something out of a storybook. The narrow channel you have to navigate on a kayak just adds to the charm. If only there was the chance to have private access...

We paid for the tour, then the tour guide said it's no good and won't go there! Don't trust baby boat guides in El nido. They all lie so they don't have to spend fuel on the tour. Scams everywhere in El nido! All the boat guides are scammers!
