Overview
More
We offer traditional sailboat tours of Honda Bay and Babuyan River. Along the river, our guests also travel by bamboo raft and native dugout canoe. They can choose either a private trip, for small groups and couples, or an open expedition – when two or more groups join each other. We regularly organise day trips as well as overnight camping and farmhouse stays.
