We took 17 people on our exploratory trip in 2015 and now we’re offering it again to the public: Palawan Island Hopping! Join GN Tours and The Monsoon Diaries for our first expedition of the year to Palawan, Philippines to explore the amazing Bacuit Archipelago on our private party outrigger.

This trip takes us to the most remote and beautiful region of the Philippine Islands, with 4 days of island hopping, adventures to hidden lagoons and secret beaches, as well as a mainland motorcycle adventure to waterfalls and yet more pristine beaches. GN Tours and Monsoon Diaries has done this trip several times, and in our opinion Palawan is one of our favorite destinations in the world, unsurpassed for its beauty and aquatic fun!

As with all trips we are offering discounts to all returning Pioneers, GNTers, Monsooners, and group bookings.
