My friends and I went on a group trip and this was my favorite boat and crew. They took us around to some cool places in El Nido, from kayaking to snorkeling, and general open water chill time.

The crew was super nice and friendly, as well as high energy and welcoming. When we had any shore excursions, or went off the main boat, they took a dry bag and offered to carry our items for us. They were also just very helpful and accommodating in general.

The boat was also very nice and spacious. It seated 13 of us comfortably (not including the crew) and had plenty of fun interactive amenities. There was a second floor/deck that had seating, a water slide, and a high dive board thing. Additionally on the sides of the boat there were nets you could rest on, and also bean bags you can put anywhere to chill on. Also the boat felt large and stable enough that I never even considered any risk of capsising. (We went on another trip later with a different company on a slightly smaller boat and had to be mindful to keep even distribution of people so we dont tip too far one way lol)

They cooked and provided food and it was delicious. They served it boodle fight style (all food just in a giant pile on banana leaves) but they also gave us plates and utensils. Looked really cool, but I’m sure if you don’t want it served this way they will also just put them on separate serving dishes.

Overall would highly recommend to other people. Had a great time

We are a family of 10 that chose  the  private tour (i.e.,  no other guests) on a huge  boat that can accommodate up to 24 people. The boat has its own kayaks. Snorkels and beach shoes can be rented if you don't have one. It has an upper deck where you can hang out to enjoy unobstructed view of the sea, islands and the sunset.  The boat has a water slide that we used to dive when snorkeling. The crew (around 6 people, I think) are amazing and made sure we enjoy every moment.  They stayed close to us the whole time and we felt safe.
  Since we're not strong swimmers,  we were hesitant to go snorkeling  even with a life vest.  To give us a sense of security that we will not be swept by the waves, they suggested that I (and my 2 kids) hold on to a lifesaver donut while snorkeling.  Jonathan pulled the donut and led us to where the nice  fishies and corals are. He also took videos of us snorkeling from underwater.  He did this again for us when we snorkelled at another island. And I really appreciate that because, otherwise, I would have passed on and miss this wonderful experience. 
Lunch and snacks at the boat were provided and they're very tasty.  (Thank you, Chef. ) After lunch we went to Shimizu island. Since the boat is huge it cannot get close to the island unlike the smaller boats.  Jonathan  (thank you again) kayak'd us to the shoreline despite the strong and rough waves because we wanted to wade and swim.
Approaching Maremegmeg Beach Club where we are staying,  instead of the usual kayak, we were met by a speedboat that took us to shore.What a welcome surprise!  I noticed the people on the beach looking at us and the speedboat. We felt really special.
All praises for Rhea and her  crew  for making this tour an experience we'll always fondly remember.  I will definitely recommend.

My family was a group of 8 plus a toddler. We booked our excursion only the day before and Rhea was so kind and accommodating. The ship was spacious and clean with so much amenities. If you have adventurous group mates they have a high jumping board and a slide. It was fun utilizing it while the rest of our group either swam around the boat or slept in the Hammocks. The crew themselves were so fun and helpful. I noticed that the crew was always close by and I felt safe. Especially my elderly mom who they personally took care of since she couldn't swim. Also they have an amazing cheif who made the biggest freshest most delicious feast.

: One of the best decision we made on our trip was to booked Hayahay Adventures. We really had a best time on their cruise. The owner Ms Rea is very accommodating, caring and generous. No question why her crew, are accommodating and caring like her. They took care of us like their own family. We felt really secured in 3 days journey with them. The friendly crew on this board make us feel really at peace. This trip is really one for the book. I will never get tired of telling everyone, that if you want to have a perfect trip in El Nido, well you need to experience a Hayahay Adventure. You're one of the reason why we will be coming back! Sorry Im not good in memorizing names but the crew on our board, we will surely see you again soon. 🙂

Hayahay have a larger boat than many others and that made for a more comfortable day with plenty of room. The staff are all wonderful, doing their best to make everyone comfortable. The tour leaves later than most and this means we arrived at sites after the crowds. And no one could believe that a lunch of that quality could be made up on the spot. We did Tour A with them.

We availed the tour on March 7, 2020. I'm not going to repeat all the good reviews but I'm gonna say this, I have been to 13 island hopping tours in El Nido. (Couldn't get enough of it.) Have tried different boats. But I will only do the Hayahay Cruise from now on. It is simply the best!

We did the Island hoping tour, with Hayahay Cruise El Nido, arranged at the front desk of our resort- Seda Lio. They pick you up at the front of resort, drive you into town to the tour shop, and from there you do a 5 minute walk to the beach, dock and the boat in the bay. And when done, they drive you back to resort. This tour boat is one of the biggest in the bay, with a top deck that you can walk around on and a first level with lots of room and even side decks to enjoy. Other boats seemed much smaller with many only one narrow level. The tour includes a lunch that was just awesome - so much seafood and regular stuff -and even a snack later towards the end, when doing a sunset cruise back to port. Unlimited iced tea, water and juice. RJ and Crew were awesome. This cruise also leaves at 11:00 am instead of 9:00 am, so you don't have to rush in the morning to get there on time. Plus being 2 hours later than the rest, we would arrive at spots when they were all leaving, so never crowded. Snorkeling was awesome. Kayaking in the big lagoon was awesome, although separate cost of only 300 pesos each person ($8 CDN) - and it is definitely worth it. RJ and crew really made you feel welcome, joked around, smiled and laughed and helped take pictures of us all with our cameras so we had great shots. Island stops are amazing. Coral and fish amazing. Travelling through the islands from spot to spot looking at all of the untouched islands was .....you guessed it - amazing. This tour is one of our highlights of our trip to the Philippines. If your in El Nido,you need to take this cruise. All for $38 CDN. What a deal!
