About Kraken El Nido
Enjoy the best island hopping destinations of El Nido in our amazing boat. Our tours include all the food, drinks, WiFi, music, kayaks, paddle board and snorkel equipment. We depart around 11a.m, later than the other boats so we can be alone in almost every place, and go back around 18.30p.m., after the sunset view from the boat.

Very nice boat, with food and drinks, music and friendly staff to make it a memorable day around the islands of el nido. Worthy stops with a variety of activities to enjoy. Helpful staff on land and promptly to answer any queries immediately. Thank you!

If you are visiting El Nido and are not on a strict budget, definitely spend a bit extra and do one of the K island hopping tours with Kraken. Not only do you get a combo of two of the tours (either A and B, which we did, or C and D) but you leave later than the other groups and return during sunset, meaning you miss the majority of other groups and visit most of the locations when they are not as congested. The boat is larger and nicer than the other tour boats you see going around the islands and has a toilet on board, plenty of space on the lower deck for sunbathing and a comfy seating. The tour includes use of water shoes, mask & snorkel, kayaks and paddle boards and the food is excellent; from snacks and a welcome drink on arrival to a fantastic freshly prepared buffet for lunch and then a cocktail and burger as you’re watching the sunset at the end of the tour. Like all the other tours, you do have to wade out to the boat at the beginning of the day so make sure you’ve got swim stuff on ready. Kraken take your bags across for you though and make sure your belongings get to the boat dry. At the end of the tour you cross onto the floating harbour via another boat so you don’t get wet on the way back in. The final point to mention is the fantastic staff, from being helpful and informative when booking the tour to the actual staff on the boat being funny, friendly, engaging and extremely helpful and attentive- they made the trip extra special. If you’ve only got time for one island hopping tour in El Nido, make sure to book with Kraken!

Congratulations to all the team at Kraken! You're doing an amazing job and we can feel your passion! If you have only a couple of days in El Nido, just book K1 and/or K2 tours with Kraken and have the best of tours A, B, C and D put together for you! The boat is very big, with capacity for about 30 people, but they only take 15 people/day, so you'll have plenty of space to enjoy! You'll leave the beach a couple of hours after all the other boats, so you'll have pretty much all the destinations for yourself and will return to El Nido after you've watched the beautiful sunset in the middle of the ocean! Also, the food is entirely prepared on board and it looked and tasted amazing! Get ready for a big buffet of fresh filipino food and to know El Nido in an unforgettable way!

I was very surprised to see the bad reviews on this tour company as we had a great time! We were recommended this tour by a couple that had done it a couple days before and they loved it. So we thought we would give it a go. Ok so it is over double the amount you would spend on another tour BUT they offer soft drinks, fruit juice and water when you want it. They supply some snacks and chips when you arrive and a fresh fruit juice welcome drink. After 2 stops you get served lunch and it's a huge selection! Just before sunset we all got offered a free cocktail and then on our way back to the harbour we got given biscuits and chocolates and then lastly a hamburger. Everything was supplied, towels, kayaks, snorkling shoes and gear. The guide told us a couple of interesting facts and the whole crew we found extremely friendly and so pleasant to be around. The sunset on the boat is also amazing and because the boat is so spacious there's plenty of space for everyone to get a picture. Honestly, I am so sad to read the bad experiences that were had from previous reviews but we really had a great time and highly recommend to everyone who doesn't want to spend a couple hours crammed onto a small boat. Worth the money.

The first impression of El Nido town is everywhere comes with tourABCD agencies, however, they have a lot of hidden charge and if you forget to ask every single details, you gotta pay much more than you expected! I joined Tour K, from Kraken Tour and it’s just one price included everything ! The main point is the boat is much much bigger compare with your ABCD, so that you can really enjoy a real boat trip and the food is a high quality buffet lunch while tourABCD just providing some basic feed you up lunch. For the service of the crew, I gave the 100marks ! Friendly, knowledgeable, caring, funny,.....aeeee, don’t forget to get their free cocktails, I am sure you will love it and Tour ABCD can’t give you ! Thanks Kraken
