These are some frequently asked questions of which we shall update more.
What is the time frame for cancellation/amendment of bookings?
For direct reservations w/o van service it must be 2 weeks prior to target date otherwise 1 week will do. For those who came from group buying site/s, it must be 2 weeks before the date otherwise vouchers will be forfeited.

As long as it’s within the time frame for cancellation/amendments noted above and within the validity of the voucher which is normally 6 months.

For Hundred Islands: We normally ask our friends/relatives to pick our guests at Alaminos Victory Liner Bus Station or near stations.

Juvenile and other tuna species such as Skipjacks, Bonito and Yellowfin can go as low as P70 per kilo. Dorados, Snappers, Groupers, Shrimps and Squid are frequently available most especially in the morning.

They will show the direction to the hiking area and may assist along the way but they are not tour guides.
