Balabac Private Tour Package Details

A Balabac Private Tour without Van Transfer is for you if:

  • You want to enjoy the privacy of having your own boat and your own time.
  • You have booked flights that does not fit any of our scheduled group trips.
  • You want to arrange your own transportation to Buliluyan Port (e.g., hire a smaller car, or if you are coming from another part of Palawan)

This is best for couples, families or group of friends who want to visit Balabac together. Although there is a standard itinerary, we can customize it a little bit to fit your needs. Still, we cannot customize the weather and waves to fit a perfect itinerary.

However, if you want to include the van in the package without much, then you can join our Balabac Group Tour where we pool #VACCINATED travelers together on a fixed tour schedule!

Balabac Private Trip Length and Schedules
Dictate the schedule you want!

As long as your travel date allows you to have minimum of 3D2N in Balabac, then we can accommodate you.

Pick from 3D2N, 4D3N and 5D4N.

3D2N – For travelers who have limited time. Visiting all islands in the inclusions is not guaranteed, but you still get to go to the most beautiful ones like Onok Island, Candaraman Sandbar, Mansalangan Sandbar and Punta Sebaring beach and sandbar. If you want to visit all destinations in the inclusions, then you should go for 4D3N.

4D3N – Ideal length of time to travel the highlights of Balabac. You get to visit all the top destinations without hurrying to leave for the next.

5D4N – More laid back than 4D3N. You will still visit the same set of islands (plus a bonus) but spend more time in each one.

Note that our standard itinerary suggests that you should arrive to Puerto Princesa a day before (Day 0) that start of your tour to maximize Day 1.

Starting your tour on the same day of your arrival to PPS is possible only if you take the earliest flight which arrives to PPS at 6-8am. We will then pick you up from the airport and send you to Balabac and visit 1-2 islands before arriving to our beach campsite. This counts as Day1.

If you arrive at 9-10 am, you may still start the tour but you will not be able to hop to an island before arriving to the campsite. This still counts as Day 1.

If you arrive later than 11 am, you will not be able to reach the campsite by daylight, so it is best to start the tour the next day.
