Our private Underground River Tour will bring you to one of the 7 New Wonders of Nature. In your private air-conditioned van, you will travel from Puerto Princesa City to Sabang, about two hours from the city proper. From there, you can reach the protected national park where you will discover the underground river. On the way back, you will have the opportunity to stop at Ugong Rock Adventures or Hundred Caves if time permits.

With this tour, you have the option to do the Extended Tour. This is an awesome way to discover this wonder of nature as it will take you where very few tour operators bring their guests… Instead of the short 1.5 km tour, you will go up to 4.3 km inside the underground river. After the turning point of the public tours, you will most likely pass very few other boats. This is truly a unique experience and the best way to appreciate the quiet, beauty and remoteness of the famous underground river.

This extended tour has other advantages: since you will have a private boat, you will not have to wait for boats with different groups of tourists. You will have your own boat and can start the tour as soon as you arrive at the National Park. The additional payment for this option (P5,000) is exactly the same as the price charged by the park authorities. We don’t gain anything, but this option is so great that we want to offer it at cost, so that you can enjoy the Puerto Princesa Underground River experience.

Note that if you choose the Extended Tour, you may not have enough time to stop at Ugong Rock or Hundred Caves on the way. If you choose the normal tour, you will be able to vary the activities on the same exceptional day. Both options are great: the choice is up to you!

  1. Pierre

    I did this tour in 2019 and it was a great experience. Our tour guide Mercy was really nice and friendly, and I can only recommend choosing the “extended tour” option. It took us for a three hours boat ride deep inside the Underground River. We were alone most of the time in the silence of the cave and I feel we would have missed so much if we only did the short tour like the vast majority of people were doing. If you have the time, it’s absolutely worth the extra fee.
