This is the original and highest rated island hopping tour in Cartagena that delivers the complete experience with professional vetted guides. The tour features a fast-paced itinerary with five total stops, 3 of them beach clubs. It's important to note that not every stop is an island; there are three accessible islands for ground visits. Others similar listings may promote snorkeling activities (Coral Reef & Escobar's Plane) as island visits, but they are water-based activities. We are also the only excursion with access to exclusive beach clubs. Entries, lunch and snorkeling gear are included, but there is a tourist port tax cash fee that must be paid at the pier before boarding (27,000 COP). Itinerary: We'll meet near the Historic Center and board a large passenger shuttle boat that will take us to the channel of islands, 45 mins away. First you'll snorkel at a coral reef in a place known as Laguna. Second, you'll snorkel at Pablo Escobar's sunken plane. For the third stop, we make our way to a popular beach club in Rosario island for a Caribbean lunch. At the fourth stop, you'll proceed to an eco private beach club in Isla Grande. Only during the weekends (Saturday & Sunday), this fourth stop will be replaced with Cholon party island. We end with our fifth stop at another beach club in Baru until departure. Return to Cartagena at around 4:45 PM. NOTE: This activity requires some physical activity. Boat rides are bumpy and not suitable for injured persons. Account for the chance of rain and come prepared. Expect Cartagena's nearby islands to be touristy. Island vendors are persistent and can be bothersome. Businesses on the islands have markups, higher prices apply. Ask for prices beforehand and check receipts. Cards are accepted, but cash is highly recommended. Beach and swim attire is a must.
