Islands Banca Cruises & Bloggers' Day Tour

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 Posted by vernon go , ,

After the Cebu Blog Camp 2011, we had gone out with a few bloggers outside cebu on a trip around metro cebu. We had lunch at the Photoblogger's House then to the city proper for some "pasalubong" buys and after which, to Lapu Lapu City for the Islands Banca Cruises.

Guests to the Photoblogger's Mansion, The prince and his aid? XD
Think a mini subdivision wif pool, view, gazebo football field and all ahhaha don't take my word for it

Inside the banca, sports an expanded deck for optimal sunbathing and sightseeing. Beanbag seats are plentiful and an Islands Banca Cruises trademark feature, along with cushioned seats. An iPod dock, wireless internet access, fresh towels, cold beverages, and snacks are additional touches that really make the island-hopping experience an addicting one.

Not to be forgotten are also the well-trained crew members of the Islands banca who know how to anticipate and cater to the needs of our guests. Also for this case, since we had so much left over food, we also bought it with us for the tour and shared some with the crew :P.

Bean Bags on a boat...awesome!
About Islands Banca Cruises:

The Islands Group saw an opportunity here, and through its culture of innovation and passion for service, Islands Banca Cruises (IBC) was born in 2008. Taking a fresh look at a cottage-industry product, just as it did with Islands Souvenirs, Islands Banca Cruises has elevated and professionalized the island-hopping experience. When it comes to island-hopping, the journey is now made just as important as the destination, with a crew that is customer-focused and well trained to attend to the guests’ every need and the reconfigured banca to maximize the island-hopping experience for its guests.

Wind + Rocking Boat + poor balance = ???
Islands Banca Cruises (IBC) also has put together packages and services that a destination can be proud to offer its visitors. Activities and customizable trips such as sunset cruises, lechon and barbecue picnics on board the banca or on a sandbar, theme parties or a candle-lit dinner for two, can all be arranged. Snorkeling, scuba diving, fish feeding, sea kayaking and dolphin watching are some of the many possibilities while on an Islands Banca Cruise.

Islands Banca Cruises is today the leading island-hopping service provider in Cebu. The concept has been met with much demand, which has propelled the group to add 6 new bancas to the IBC fleet this year, leading up to summer. Plans are currently under way to take the concept to Palawan, Bohol, Boracay, and Davao. Just visit www.theislandsgroup.com for more info.!
