Day 4: Coron
After breakfast at the resort, you will leave your hotel for a Reef & Wrecks Tour. The Coron Reef & Wrecks Tour takes in 3 exciting destinations and offers an amazing opportunity to experience some unique snorkelling opportunities, including the Lusong Gunboat, Pass Island and Sangat Coral Garden.
Pass Island is a beautifully serene island, surrounded by crystal clear water and powdery white sandy beach which could rival Boracay's White Beach. Here you can relax and enjoy the serene waters, so be sure to swim or snorkel alongside this impressive chunk of protected reef, teeming with life. There is also an opportunity to climb to a vantage point which offers the climbers a 360-degree view of the whole of the island.
Sangat Coral Garden is home to an abundance of fish, coral and marine life, all of which can be viewed just whilst snorkelling. Some avid snorkelers claim that Sangat’s Coral Garden is the best snorkelling site in Coron, with more amazing, colourful corals than there are fish.
Lusong Gunboat is located close to Sangat Coral garden and is one of the twelve World War II Japanese Supply Ships that was anchored in Coron Bay. When the US Navy launched a massive airstrike, this ship sank to a depth of just 10 metres and is lying on its side. It can easily be viewed by snorkelling alone and is now home to corals and marine life. After the tour, journey back to the hotel for an overnight stay at the Asia Grand View Hotel in a Superior Room.

Upon arrival at approx 4 pm, you will be met by a representative who will take you in a private transfer to your hotel. Overnight stay at the Seda Lio Resort in a Deluxe Forest Room.
Day 6: El Nido
After breakfast at the hotel, you will be picked up for your Shared El Nido Island Hopping Tour C. El Nido is known for its beautiful powdery white sand beaches and limestone rock formations. El Nido Tour C is probably the most popular of all El Nido Tours. It will take you on a journey to beautiful islands, beaches and snorkelling spots, and to an uncanny place: Matinloc Shrine. If you were to pick only one tour in El Nido, this probably would be Tour C.
Helicopter Island - By just looking at its shape, you will already know why it’s called the Helicopter Island. Some people had a hard time associating its shape, being just 20 minutes away from El Nido town by boat but Helicopter Island features a long white-sand beach, crystal-clear waters and towering karst formations projecting from a dense tropical forest on both of the island.
Matinloc Island - Matinloc shrine is an abandoned site hidden at the foot of towering karst cliffs on the western coast of Matinloc Island. More formally known as the Shrine of Our Lady of Matinloc, it was built in 1982. This place has been completely neglected (with the main building almost empty), but tourists are still allowed to visit. While others may find this as a spiritual oasis, most tours stop here for the view.
Star Beach - Star Beach is another spectacular snorkelling site featuring the wonders and beauty of the coral reefs: colourful fish, starfish and sea urchins. 30 metres out and 15 metres down, more often than not you’ll see some turtles.
Hidden Beach - Surrounded by limestone rocks formations, this swimming area resembles a natural infinity pool with crystal clear waters. You’ll have to swim for five minutes before the waters begin to be waist deep, or knee deep as you walk to the beach tucked in on the left-hand side. It is better to try and float on the waters as the corals and rocks can scratch you.
After the tour, head back to the hotel. Overnight stay at the Seda Lio Resort in a Deluxe Forest Room.
Enjoy breakfast at the resort then proceed for your Shared El Nido Island Hopping Tour A. On El Nido Tour A, you can discover beautiful lagoons, beaches and snorkelling spots where you can swim and admire the corals, the colourful fauna and its hundreds of fish’s species. This is a place where you can just relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of exploring the hidden wonders of each lagoon. The Small and Big Lagoon’s tranquil turquoise-green waters of its orchid-lined limestone walls, showcase a kaleidoscope of marine life. Shimizu is an island with stunning limestone cliffs where “Balinsasayaw” (swiftlets) nest and produce the much sought after bird’s nest soup, believed by Asians to have healing properties. Secret Lagoon is located in a small island reminiscent of the movie "the Beach" surrounded by limestone karst cliffs. Seven Commandos Beach is named after the 7 remaining Japanese commandos who lived in the island as stranglers after World War II.
