Great if the tour boat lets you swim

I is included in tour B out of El Nido. Unfortunately the boat staff usually limits the visit to a stop in front. But it is great if the tour boat lets you swim.

Who would guess that this dramatic rocky islet would hide a cave with high ceilings like a cathedral? If you are in a small boat, you could enter the cathedral .. if you come in a banca, that is too big to go in, just jump in the water and swim in.

This day we took Tour B which includes 2 caves and 3 beaches/snorkeling sites. The Cathedral Cave was one of the caves I thought it was a bit boring. Of course as soon you come closer it looks amazing, but just for a few seconds. The cave is very short so can not go out of the boat to explore.

El Nido is a place to behold! The tour was really awesome! We saw a lot of beautiful islands. This cave had super blue waters

Until you are directly on the cave, it is hard to truly appreciate how beautiful it is. It is a great attraction only accessible by boat. Great picture opportunity.

View is nice. We just passed by and took pictures since the weather wasn't cooperating but it was breathtaking nonetheless.

One of the sites we were brought to that day is the Cathedral cave. Alighting from the boat, one would not even notice the small crack in the limestone wall. It was a very small opening roughly 20 inches high and a mere meter long. The rock surface was also rough and a towel was placed by the guides so... More

If you're cool with your tour guides/captain ask them to take you here. The caves are amazing with huge Stalactite formations. Do bring: Camera, Swimmers, Towels etc

Part of Tour B. Great spot for a Photo but nothing special. The entrance of the cave is big but has nothing to do with a cathedral.

Don't go out of your way to see this, you can't go in. So spend your time else where if you get to pick what you visit. My family signed up for a snorkeling, caves and beach tour. This was one of the stops. Would still recommend that tour, however this was one stop on it that I could have... More
