Panglao Island Hopping: Dolphin Watching, Balicasag Island, Virgin Island & Alona Beach

It was an early start on day 4 of our Bohol Backpacking trip - we had booked a tour that would take us to multiple places in the Bohol Sea.   We had chosen a popular trip, the Panglao Island Hopping Tour, that takes you out into the sea for a heady mix of dolphin watching, snorkeling, turtle encountering on Balicasag Island, and finally to The Virgin Island.

Chasing Waterfalls in Bohol 2018

My sister and I recently went chasing waterfalls as part of our Bohol backpacking trip. We took a van ride from the Dao Bus Terminal from near the Island Mall.
