Discover the gems all over Cebu through these tours!

Cebu is outlined by exquisite white sand beaches that can rival the best in the world. Finding something laidback to do in these beaches is easy; you can take a dip in the cool clear waters or simply lounge around with a cold brew in hand while waiting for the sun to set. But if your response to these suggestions is “been there, done that,” then you may want to try one activity popular among residents and visitors alike: island hopping.

And to make your trip as smooth and stress free as possible, why not join island-hopping tours in Cebu City instead of going the DIY route? To help you out, here are five tour companies that can make your travel to the province more interesting!

1. Cebu Island Tours

Prices: Starts at PhP1,700 for a 13-person island hopping tour to three islands; PhP6,000 for a one-person island hopping to four islands

Cebu Island Tours offers two set of tours: a three-island tour and a four-island tour. The three-island tour takes visitors to Nalusuan Island, Hilotongan Island, and Caohagan Island while the four-island tour includes the first three islands plus Pandanon Island.

While they offer options for individual tours, you may want to go with your family or friends to get a lower price per person. The package includes entrance fees to some of the islands, life jackets, snorkels, a car or van pickup from the hotel, and boat service. It does not include meals so you would have to bring your own lunch.

2. Cebu Bohol Travel and Tours

Prices: Starts at PhP1,550 per person for a 13-person island hopping tour; PhP5,250 for a one-person tour
