One of the best decisions we made during our trip to El Nido was taking a private speedboat with Skipper Charters to see the islands away from the tourist boats. We spent two days exploring the best sites around El Nido and the Linopacan Islands, a group of islands about 3 hours from El Nido. Although a slightly bumpy ride, once we arrived in the turquoise paradise without a soul in site, all feelings of seasickness just melted away. It truly is paradise on earth.

Going with this faster speedboat was definitely a great choice. Benefits included seeing twice the amount of islands in one day, safer and more comfortable boat, amazing lunch, snorkel and masks provided, clean towels and less people. This is definitely premium to what is standard in El Nido, but fully worth it for this once in a lifetime bucket list trip.
Thanks to Mon and Skipper Charters for such an amazing introduction to your mesmerizing islands.
