Siargao Island Hopping tour – Naked, Daku, Guyam Island

The most common one consists of 3 stops – Naked Island, Daku Island and Guyam Island.

These three islands are relatively close to Siargao Island and you can join a shared boat or take a private boat. Even though throughout the whole Philippines we would recommend you to take a private boat anytime you can, in this case, it doesn’t make sense.
Because these three islands are pretty small and popular, we found that any time of the day they would be packed with people.

Are the Siargao Island Hopping tours worth the money

This is just our opinion based on our experiences. With this said:

It´s definitely a beautiful day on the boat. Being on the sun and exploring Filipino Islands is definitely so much fun.
BUT to be completely honest with you, our opinion would be it´s not worth it if you are going to Coron or El Nido.

The shared island hopping Siargao tour is pretty affordable. So we would recommend you go if you have enough time and money. Otherwise, we would skip this trip to save money and time for much better island hopping in the Coron or El Nido.
