Siargao Island Hopping- Guyam Island, Daku Island, Naked Island
Siargao Island Hopping is quickly becoming one of the number one tourist attractions in the Philippines, and for good reason. A day tour with KERMIT SIARGAO will have you swimming in the clear waters at Guyam Island, before heading off to Daku Island for a delicious grilled buffet lunch, and then ending the day at Naked Island.
In this guide, I will show you how to book a tour, what to expect once you arrive, and like always, some photos to inspire you to go Siargao island hopping.
HOW TO GET TO SIARGAO
Before you can go island hopping in Siargao, you need to get to Siargao. There are two options available, boat and plane. The boat I’m sure saves money but I am not quite too sure how that works, its best to take the plane. It will only cost around $65 USD from the Cebu airport and takes roughly one hour.
They are also flying to Siargao via Manila. Check out SKYSCANNER for current pricing.

WHERE TO STAY IN SIARGAO
If you’re headed to Siargao you are most likely going to base yourself in either General Luna or Pacifico. General Luna is where you will find the well-known spots like CLOUD 9. Thomas and I stayed here for 12 nights in total and absolutely loved it.
If you decide to stay in General Luna, I cant recommend KERMIT SIARGAO enough. They can set you up with literally everything you need. Surf trips out to jacking horse, island tours, accommodation, the best Italian food you’ve ever had, you name it, KERMIT SIARGAO has it.
You may also choose to stay in Pacifico, which is more chill and hardly any tourists. Pacifico also has some of the best waves on the island if you’re into surfing (advanced).
HOW TO BOOK- SIARGAO ISLAND HOPPING
As I mentioned earlier, Kermit Siargao is the place to go. Whether you’re staying with them or not, the cost for the three island hopping tour is 1000 Pesos, or just under $20 USD. The price is including a tremendous lunch.
If you decide not to go with Kermit or they are booked up, you can simply walk down the main strip in General Luna and you will be able to find a tour for Siargao island hopping.
WHAT TO EXPECT- GUYAM, NAKED, AND DAKU ISLAND- SIARGAO
If you book with Kermit, you will meet at the resort at 9:30 am, and be leaving by 10 am sharp. They will take you down to the harbor where you will board their cute catamaran and you’re off.
FIRST STOP- GUYAM ISLAND SIARGAO
I am sure you have all seen Guyam Island floating around on social media, even if you don’t know the name of it. It is a perfect little island covered in palm trees surrounded by beautiful blue water and shallow reef.
We spent around 1 hour hanging out on Guyam Island. Thomas and I worked on our palm tree climbing skills and took some photos. Time really does fly when you’re having fun.
SECOND STOP- DAKU ISLAND SIARGAO
Our next stop of our Siargao island hopping adventure was Daku Island. When we pulled in there were perfect little waves crashing and surfers out in the lineup. Daku Island is where we had lunch and just relaxed.
Thomas and I were planning on just creating so much content but were genuinely having too much fun just chatting with the people from our group, we couldn’t pull ourselves away. We ended up hanging out with those same people for the remainder of our time in Siargao. So much love.
We spent roughly two hours at Daku Island chatting in the shallows and having the most amazing grilled lunch.
THIRD AND FINAL STOP- NAKED ISLAND SIARGAO
The final stop of our Siargao island hopping adventure was Naked Island. By the time we got here, there were massive storm clouds rolling in. We spent just a few minutes flying the drone, and relaxing in the water before our group decided it was best to head out.
Go to Naked Island at high tide!
If you’re planning on flying a drone and grabbing some photos, I recommend trying to come at high tide. The water was so low that the reef was crazy exposed and wasn’t quite the look I was going for!
On our way back to mainland Siargao we got totally caught up in the gnarliest rain storm but it was so fun! As the bow dipped below the surface, it sent up super warm sea water that felt so so good in the freezing rain!
When we arrived back, it was so low tide we had to walk roughly 500 meters back in the shallows, trying to avoid sinkholes, HA! It was the most fun day ever with even better people! Thank you again KERMIT SIARGAO!
