We are located right in the heart of the legendary yet unspoiled Bacuit Bay around El Nido, Palawan.
From our Floating Hotel we go visiting secret places where no one else goes, and going to famous places when no one else is there…
From virgin islands to stunning lagoons, we offer a wide range of activities such as Snorkelling, Trekking in the jungle, Cave exploration, Fishing, Kayaking, Cliff jumping, Sunbathing, and more… (See Activities).
Every day is a new adventure!
At night, sit back and admire the magical sunset while sipping a cocktail. Then enjoy the fresh food buffet prepared by our Chef and his team (See Accommodation).
Party or relax is then up to the general mood… but when you feel like sleeping, you can choose between your cabin or a hammock on the deck to get a well deserved rest. Nothing like sleeping on a boat…
The Island Cruiser II is a local Bangka boat customized and transformed into a floating hotel that can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests in simple but very comfy and clean conditions. (See Accommodation).
We charter a transfer boat leaving El Nido everyday around 12noon. It will take you directly to the Island Cruiser II. You will then be welcomed by our highly professional crew who is dedicated to make you enjoy every single second spent with us (See Schedule).
Come aboard now, we’re expecting you…
First you'll be amazed by rocky mountains covered in luxurious vegetation emerging from a teal blue sea... Then you'll dive into one of the clearest water in the world which stays above 25 degrees Celsius all year. Swim and snorkel on top of colourful corals and witness a diversity of marine life only seen in the Philippines.
El Nido's bay is simply a must see in a lifetime, and Palawan Secret Cruise offers a unique way to discover and enjoy its wonders.
