From Siargao, are there public passenger boats? Or do you have to hire one to take you to Bucas Grande?

My next destination would be the Bucas Grande Islands. Gosh! Browsing the pictures of the island makes me more excited about the trip, all I need is to count the remaining days for everything is already set and I don’t have to worry for my excess luggage anyway.

Bucas Grande Islands is a must have experience, I can see on the pictures that it is “more fun in the Philippines.” I think Philippine’s Department of Tourism is doing great in promoting tourism in their country, I heard that since they’ve used the internet and social media in promoting the country’s tourism, the number of their tourists increased.
