Island Hopping With Sea Drake Island Cruises

At the port of Tubigon, a sea dragon in its black and white, well-built body awaits his guests. Sea Drake Island Cruises takes tourists to places – to islands that sometimes exist and sometimes do not, islands they will never forget, virgin islands they will be having a hard time saying goodbye to.

Equipped with cushioned seats, sound systems powered by solar panels, dressing rooms and restrooms, Sea Drake Island cruises is the newest island hopping service in Bohol. With life vests, ring life savers, and snorkels on hand, a safe and enjoyable journey is in store for guests.

I was privileged to be onboard this sea dragon for the Bohol Bloggers Collective’s 1st Anniversary. I was as excited as a young kid. But with my little rascal in tow, I was also bit anxious. But then, I figured that the boat is child-friendly. Pierre actually enjoyed the ride as I did.

Maneuvered by a skilled boatmaker, Sea Dragon Junior took us to our first stop – the breathtaking Catangtangan Island where a lone shack stands.

The next spot was as magnificent as the first with some rocks meeting the turquoise water and pinkish sand – Dumog Island.

Then, there was Mundong, a sandbar that appears during low tide, separating Bohol from Cebu.

Our next destination was to the island of Barangay Mocaboc. Life here is relaxed, happy, and far from complications.

It was getting dark when we headed to our final stop – the island of Ubay where hundreds of mangroves grow.  Through Sea Drake Island Cruises, I found out that there are still a lot more that Bohol has to offer.

    The water looks amazing! I have always wanted to see that part of the world and will definitely go on a cruise too. The lone shack looks interesting, did they tell you anything about it? Why is it there haha? Glad your son found the cruise fun, too! That’s always a good sign.

      I have no idea, either. Maybe it was built for the sea birds to rest on.

    What a great way to spend the day! Beaches and boats are two of the best things in this world:)

      Yes, Rosie. Island hopping is really fun. Discovering new places while relaxing.

    Sea Drake Island Cruises looks like a luxury ferry boat. I have seen beautiful photos of the North Sand bar and I am eager to visit that place. The island looks serene and breathtaking.

      It is, Iza. Wish I could stay there overnight if I had time

    Sounds like a fun cruise, glad you and your son had a great time! I don’t really enjoy boats but the pictures of the sandbar are making me reconsider haha.

      It was fun and relaxing at the same time

    The water looks beautiful. Did you have the chance to do any snorkeling? I’m a huge snorkeling as well as SCUBA fan and plan trips around that on occasion.

      I wasn’t able to snorkel coz I can’t swim (don’t laugh, please) and my boy was with me so I was a little cautious. Haha

    Unfortunately, we only got to spend a little bit of time in Boracay and Manila when we visited the Philippines last year. We loved it! We didn’t get the chance to visit Bohol but taking this ferry sounds like the perfect way to explore it. Hopefully we will be back this year.

      Awww… Hope to see you’ll have time visiting the Philippines again and include Bohol in your itinerary.

    The island and the beach is gorgeous. I can’t believe how gorgeous the water looks! I would love to try this out!

Say something. Leave a trail.
