Owner description: Ocean Dreamer Island Tours aims to provide a fun-filled tour experience of Olango Island and its neighboring islets. Ocean Dreamer Island Tours is not your typical Island Hopping business. The staff and crew are committed to meet the guests' expectations. We believe that nothing can be more satisfying than to see the smile of a satisfied customer at the end of the tour. Thus, any reasonable request during the tour will be honored. The guests will have a first-hand experience to swim with the rare and protected tropical fishes in the blue ocean waters, bask in the sun and relax in the beautiful white sand beaches, visit the popular tourist and local destinations and mingle with the "Islahanon" (local people).

We contacted Jay by WhatsApp the night before. Jay was extremely welcoming, responsive and specified all the details we needed to know.
We asked to move the island hopping one hour forward because we had trouble getting at the designated hour, it was no problem, Jay even offered help on how to get to the port.
On the boat we met with Jorjy and Vincent who escorted us for the entire day.
Through the entire trip service was great, the feeling that every minute of the day was to our choosing, if we wanted to stay more time at the beach it was fine, if we wanted to snorkel some more they had no problem with it.

We snorkeled, got some tan at beach, ate a fabulous seafood lunch, and learned how to catch and eat sea urchins.
To conclude we had great time with the Ocean Island Dreamer crew.
You're the best!

They're very responsive. We appreciate that they responded to our inquiry around just a couple of days before the date of trip; even at late hours.

We took the Olango Daytrip (1 island). Well, we somehow enjoyed the trip; we're not very picky travelers we try to make most of what we have but to be honest it didn't feel like it was worth the price. (Php 2500/pax). In our opinion it was only worth Php 1000-1500.

1) Took public boat back and forth (For the price you would expect a private boat but instead it was a public one which we don't mind but we hoped we get the value of our money coz boat ride was just 20 pesos each way!!!)

2) Visited the Bird Watching site at the wildlife sanctuary - It was a new experience for us and the walking path was scenic despite the scorching heat. Sadly there weren't too many birds and the bird expert was not really very entertaining. There were a few pictures at the viewing deck but not that much explanations.

3) Lunch at the Boardwalk - the long path although tiring was kinda fun, we had lunch at the floating station. We had shrimps, fishes, grilled pork and chicken, spidershells, mango + water, coke, beer . Food was more than enough for us, we weren't able to finish them so we hope some of the local folks finished it so it doesn't go to waste. They should also consider to stop providing bottled waters because it just adds more trash (which we are strongly against). Lunch was good.

4) Snorkeling around the place where we ate- We thought we are gonna go further to some parts with several corals or fish but our guides only took us a few meters away from the floating station which was only around 5feet deep. There's very few things to see, so we just ended up looking for plastic trash that we can pick up. The guides were surprised to what we did but hope it becomes a normal practice especially for them who are locals. We were looking forward to the snorkeling part it was sadly a letdown. Nevertheless we tried to enjoy our time.

5) Coconut harvest - One of our kuya's climb a coconut tree to pick some coconuts which made my partner amused . He took 3 coconuts quickly and they let us drink and eat it. Very refreshing of course. I love coconuts! It was brief but nice.

In conclusion trip was okay but too overpriced.

We booked 3island hopping tour from their website two days before for two persons. It was last minutes booking so only cash(4000pesos per person) was allowed for paying but it was totally worth the money. Also we added the transportation from and to our hotel for extra 3500 pesos and they picked us up at 830am at our hotel in Cebu City. The staff was really nice and friendly so we could enjoy the tour. The lunch was amazing too, we had pork, fish, chicken and spider shell BBQ with rice and delicious mango. Drink was free during the tour so we had no worries about hydration. Snorkeling was just amazing like we did snorkeling three times at each islands and we even got to eat fresh sea urchin after the snorkeling. Everyone was so nice and wonderful I will definitely recommend this tour if you are reading this. Thank you so much to the staffs there you guys are the best and I’ll definitely come back next time I’ll visit Cebu!

3island hoppingのツアーを2日前にホームページから予約しました。直前の予約だったので現金のみの支払いでした(1人4000ペソ)が、本当にこのツアーにして良かったと思ったのでここに書いています。セブシティにあるホテルからの往復送迎を3500ペソで追加したので移動も楽でした。スタッフは皆さんとても親切で日本語を少し覚えている人がたくさんいました。合計で4つの島?エリア?に行き、その都度シュノーケリングをしました。2つ目の島ではランチで豚、鶏、魚、貝類のバーベキューとお米、マンゴー(これがとっても甘くて美味しかった!)を頂き、4つ目の島のあたりでウニを採りその場で食べさせてもらいました。飲み物は冷えたものが飲み放題で水分不足になることはなかったですし、ビールも2つ頂きました。笑

Great service, friendly crews, delicious food, beautiful ocean, and reasonable price!!

We went on an island hopping tour in Feb. Booking was very smooth as Jay promptly replied every single one of my emails.

I went diving while 3 of my friends were snorkeling on the tour. We enjoyed one on one diving/snorkeling since there were 4 of us and 8 crews. The crews were nice and funny, and made sure we were safe in the water. The island we went for lunch was so beautiful and breathtaking! Of course the lunch was fantastic, and we got to try some great sea urchins fresh out of water as well. We had nothing but fun!!
当日は私がダイビング、友人3人はシュノーケリングをしましたが、1人1人にクルーがついてくれるというとにかく手厚いお姫様待遇(笑) 水の中でも安心して遊ぶことが出来ました。ランチも海から獲ってきたウニもおいしくて、ウニが苦手な私でも食べられました。2月は乾季の始まりなのか、たまたまだったのか風がとても強く海から上がったらかなり寒かったので、ラッシュは必須かも。ランチで寄ったアイランドかカレンダー並みに綺麗で感動しました。

I would highly recommend anyone who’s visiting Cebu. Experience with them will exceed your expectations!

Everything was perfect. From the inquiry/reservation part, to the crew, food, service and those beautiful places. The price is worthy as we did have a very beautiful experience not just because the places are wonderful but everyone from the crew is very accomodating and they always check on us if we are comfortable or if there are anything we want to specifically try. And, as we are food fanatics...just want to mention that the feast they served is fantastic! All in all the experience was perfect from the very beginning to the end. The trip made us forget life in the city and wished to just live here.
