Get to see the amazing Puerto Princesa Underground River and experience the beauty of nature in Palawan. This 8-hour guided trip will take you to the longest navigable underground river in the world. As the place can only accommodate a small number of visitors daily, early booking is highly encouraged.

If you’re arriving in Puerto Princesa via cruise ship, please book the private tour option as your timings require special handling. As such, we are unable to join you on regular or shared trips.

What to Expect
From your hotel in downtown Puerto Princesa you’ll be transported to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, pausing for views of Ulugan Bay along the way. After arriving at Sabang Wharf, continue to the mouth of the cave by boat, watching for the monitor lizards, monkeys, snakes, and other wildlife that thrive within the protected national park. Then you’ll enter the underground river on a paddle boat, traveling into a shadowy passageway with rock formations on every side.
After you re-emerge into the sunshine, visit a Sabang restaurant for an included lunch of Filipino cuisine, served just outside the national park. If you’ve booked the spelunking and ziplining option, you’ll spend the afternoon climbing, scrambling, and soaring through the air before returning to your Puerto Princesa hotel.

I would book this through your hotel. They can arrange a transfer to the venue. There will be an extra cost for the tour and the transfer. The park only allows 7500 people per day, so your hotel can arrange for reservations... More
