When you think about a typical island hopping trip, the image of a dingy old pump
boat circling the waters comes to mind. For the Island Banca Cruises in Cebu, it’s
a totally different island hopping experience.
Island Bancas has 3 available boats that accommodate a specific number of groups. The big boat is called “Butanding” which can hold 20-35 people, while the other smaller boats are called “Butete” (12-20) and “Bolinao” (2-8 people). Guests can relax, stretch and have the luxury of space and convenience on the roomy interiors of the boats. Once onboard, guests can choose from different beverages and snacks while enjoying their own sounds on the portable IPod dock found on the boats. Guests can also spread all over the big boat and enjoy the sun and sea while seating on the numerous beanbags found on the spacious deck.
The start of the trip is along the Gilutungan Channel of the Cebu Strait. Every trip has a friendly tour guide that introduced the places the guests will be travelling to around the neighboring islands. Here he provides basic information on the places, establishments and even small tidbits that happened around the seas, quite a change from the simple trip of going to a destination.
