Island hopping and tours with our Philippines' local bangka.
One of the local transportation in the Philippines is the bangka, also known as "banca" or "pumped boat" depending the region.
Bangka’s are usually paddle driven and mostly used by the locals for fishing within shallow waters.
Bangka boats also have two bamboo or wooden outriggers to support on rough and wild seas because of lacking in stability. The outriggers are tightened well to support its body as well as its passengers.
Bangka are also used for island hopping tours which are installed with inboard engines.
Depending on the size, it can carry multiple numbers of people and can travel fast on calm waters and can withstand on gushing waves.
You will surely enjoy your island hopping tour as you will feel the salty breeze of the sea as you sail along the open waters and be amazed on the view of the horizon.
