They dont advertise them here and i think its about 1800 per person for a 1 day trips. Maybe you should email them if their website has a contact link

There is really no need to book a day trip. Just take the fast ferry (any of them) to Tagbilaran early in the morning and there will be people with vans offering you day trips as you walk off the boat. Dont remember the price though, but I believe you could haggle it down to 2 or 3000 Pesos for a tour to see chocolate hills, river cruise, the tarsier etc.

Or you could take a weekend. Go to some resort on Alona beach and book a day trip through them. I believe that is the best choice unless you are in a hurry.

Hello

You have two fast ferry options for Tagbiliran from Cebu City

From Pier 1 - http://www.oceanjet.net

From Pier 4 - http://www.weesamexpress.com

As Torestre said, there will be people at the pier offering tours. It will be up to you to get the best deal by haggling. As a guide, offer half of their opening offer and walk away when they say no. Usually this will cause the price to drop.

Paul is working out how to embed my Bohol Day tour video into this thread.

I hope this helps!

I would suggest a 2-day visit. 1st day for in-land tour and island tour the next day.
I think 2T is enough for a van. In-land tour places to visit, Chocolate Hills, Loboc river/floating
restaurant, tarsiers, Loboc church ( the first church completed in the Phils), the STUPID BRIDGE,
Baklayon church and its museum (the first church started), blood compact shrine, Hinagdan cave.

Island tour may include Balikasag, Pungtod Island, etc.

When in Alona, yuo can eat with very affordable price in Trudis Place.
There's Oops Bar at night.

I agree with you. Going to Bohol and missing a boat trip is really a shame. This pic is my grand father. We are actually standing in the middle of the ocean. You could walk into the island in behind following the shallow ridge of sand going in a big curve towards the island.

Dont seem like I am able to upload the pic after all. Guess you just gonna have to take my word for it then :)
