Lunch will be prepared on the boat. The trip can be undertaken just as a single trip to Badian Island via boat, as part of an Island Hopping package taking in the snorkeling spots of Pescador Island, or as a private boat tour where you will be the Captain and choose the destinations, just tell us how long you would like to be out for and where you want to go. The boat crew will take care of the rest of the work.
