Why Choose Our El Nido Private Speedboat tours?

Tailor-made El Nido Speedboat Tours

What sets us apart from the rest of tour operators in El Nido is that we greatly consider your specific needs and interest. We do CARE. You are not bound to book one type of boat nor tied to the usual big group tour itinerary. Your journey starts from the moment you send us an email. We’ll get to know you first and ask you about the activities you like (kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, diving) then we’ll expertly handcraft a perfect boat tour itinerary that suits your group’s interests.

Sustainable Ecotourism

Sustainability is truly what makes us different. In town, it’s all about profit. With us, it’s all about giving our guests an unforgettable experience – from start to finish! The people who book with us are usually small groups of mindful travelers who don’t mind spending a bit more to be socially and environmentally conscious. We do believe this is what El Nido needs right now in order to preserve our nature – our home. While most big companies are proud to have their own boats, offices, and massive infrastructures, we are proud not to be yet another contributor to the pollution, destruction of landscapes, obstruction of views, and cheap mass tourism. It is our goal to give a variety of speedboat tour options that will cater to the needs and interests of our clients.

Personalized Service

We don’t have a daily volume of tourists so you can be assured that your trip is designed with passion. With our El Nido speedboat tours, expect more personalized service. Our small group tours give you a more intimate experience. We have all the time in the world for you. The boat crew and guide will only focus on your needs all throughout the tour. You’ll get to listen to lively onboard commentary from your guide as you pass notable sights around Bacuit Bay.

Safety and Comfort

We are a highly safety conscious small business with a license to operate tours. Experience has taught us to anticipate your every need. Most of our clients choose our signature El Nido speedboat tours for safety and comfort. We go to great lengths to look after your comfort and convenience on the boat and as well as at the sights. We only focus on one small group at a time for safety and quality assurance. The owner is hands-on all throughout the tour to make sure that the safety and service standards are met.

Note: The highlights for the El Nido speedboat tour might vary depending on the weather and sea conditions.
