A Short Trip to Splash House in Honda Bay, Puerto Princesa

After checking in Blue Palawan resort on the first day of our “World’s Best Island” tour in Palawan, we decided to have a short trip to the nearby Splash House which is easily accessible from the Honda Bay port. It is located right beside Bat Island in Puerto Princesa.

No it’s not the usual resort you have in mind, it’s actually a man-made fish pen structure / activity center in the middle of the sea. It’s a floating structure made out of wood, bamboo and drums with a total floor area of about 750sqm.

Touted as Palawan’s first and only “playground on the sea,Splash House was inspired from the concept of agricultural-tourism as it is a 10-slot fish pen that also serves as an additional destination to the Honda Bay island hopping experience.

It’s actually run by an aquaculture company that breeds red groupers (Lapu-lapu) which you will of course find among the fish pens including milk fish , Leopard Coral Grouper, and lobsters, among others.

The Splash in Splash House

Upon arriving at the Honda Bay wharf, it only took us a 3-minute speed boat ride as Splash House is visible to the naked eye from the port itself. On the other hand, it may take you 10-minutes if you are taking the “katig,” a locally made boat.

In addition to the educational hatchling tanks, kids and kids-at-heart can also have fun with other activities such as swimming (of course), snorkeling, diving via the 10-foot diving board, picturetaking with live lobsters (check!), fish feeding, human feeding (also known as ‘eating‘), basketball, partying, and my most anticipated activity – bat watching.

Sadly, we had to leave for early dinner back in the city (hence the title “short trip”) so we were not able to catch the bats in their usual flight schedule right before it gets dark.

So the next time you book an island hopping trip at Honda Bay, you might want to consider adding Splash House to your destination. The best time would be an hour before sunset so you can relax and chill while waiting for the bats fly in / out from Bat Island in Honda Bay, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
