We were picked up directly from the beach by our hotel by boat. About email directly with organizer clarified for pickup. We were lucky and alone. At first it was Delphine looking for. Also lucky and saw dolphins like 20 other boats. (Guide call each other where the dolphins are, so very busy with boats) also had luck on the reef and saw two turtles with which you could swim. Also there full of other tourists. Had our own Schnorchelzeug and therefore can not assess how the loaned is. You can also rent an actionkamara on the reef for little money to make underwater photos. (Can be that you own a memory card need) we had our own camera so do not know if that is and is worth it.

private boat tour. snorkeling around the reefs was amazing. after the booking I got a confirmation of the local tour guide with the pickup details. unfortunately the transfer from our hotel in panglao to the pier wasn't free as they wrote. we had to pay 150 peso extra one way. but the tour itself was still amazing.
