Coron Boat Tours

Do you want to stay away from the crowds and enjoy the pristine islands for yourselves?

If you prefer a private tour only for your group, just contact us and we will arrange a boat for you. Your own boat, your own time and your own islands. Or you can join one of our multi-day tours to El Nido (Sibaltan), hitting the most popular Coron spots on the way. We can also organise group or private tours in El Nido.

The prices in the table below includes private boat, licensed tour guide, lunch, snorkeling gears, entrance fees and pick up from hotel by tricycle (within coron town only). If you want to be picked up by a van from the Busuanga airport or within coron town, we could have it arranged with you for an additional cost.

If you want to do some fun diving during your private boat tour in Coron, we could have that arranged as well. Most of our customers would do one fun dive in Barracuda Lake and after that, they will continue island hopping in 2 to 3 islands around Coron only.

TAKE NOTE: Prices may change especially during peak and high season.

This Tripadvisor page shows the most popular destinations around Coron, our favourite suggestions being Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoons, quite close to one another.

At some of the places, like Twin Lagoons, the local caretaker grills fresh fish and rice. Or the boat crew can cook you up the same for 200p/meal. If instead you buy vegetables from the public market (the loading area for most of the boats), the crew can probably cook that for you for free, but a little tip would be nice.

Take note: As of December 2019, the coast guards in Coron made a bizarre rule that all boats is required to check out with them first before leaving. Meaning no boats can leave earlier than 8 am. This was not the case before but our boatmen have to follow this rule. With regards to this, do not worry. We can still help you avoid the crowd by bringing you to less crowded places first. All joiner tours do then same route everyday and they usually start on the nearest island in their itinerary.

This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).

I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.

This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!

Coron is the best place i have ever seen.. picturesque. Beautiful. Peaceful
We booked a 4 days/3 nights private boat trip from Coron to Sibaltan. The organization went very well from the beginning, the owner answered to all my questions, and we were able to choose which islands to visit and where to sleep. The first night we slept in a bungalow in Banana Island, the second we camped in Araw beach and the last we slept in a seafront bungalow builded on a tree in Pical on Iloc Island.The islands in that area are the most beautiful islands I have ever seen, with clear water, lots of coral reef and fishes to see, white sand and almost deserted. The crew was very friendly and polite and they organize every single meal and for camping they give you a tent which was just perfect! This was our highlight in our 2 weeks in the Philippines and I wish I had booked a longer trip. A private trip gives you the freedom to decide where and when to go.

    Hi Sailorsam,
    We are a family of 4 going to Coron in Jan 2020. How much will it be for a 1 day private boat tour to Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Coral Garden, Skeleton Wreck and Siete Pecados? We are open to sharing the trip with a few other people as long as we make the mentioned sites.

      Hello Ram,

      When in January do you want to do the trip? That’s possible. If you want, you can fill in the form in this link

      Choose coron only and choose open tour.

      Once you’ve submitted the form, your trip details will be shown in the table. Anyone who registered can contact you or you can contact them directly to join your group.

      Or if you want, you can do the advance payment already. It’ll be 6,500pesos for 4pax, private boat and a tour guide.

      Please make a 65$ advance payment processing fee by choosing 65 units of $1 each at:

      The remaining balance, 3,250 pesos should be paid by cash on the day of the tour to your boatman.

      REMEMBER: This does not include entrance fees and lunch. If you want lunch, it’s 200pesos/head or if you want, your boatman could bring you to the wet market where you can choose your food and they could cook it for free. 🙂

      It’s better to have a private boat because you can leave whenever you want and not in a rush. No one will blow you a whistle saying it’s time to leave.

      To avoid tourists, I would suggest leaving around 7:30am or 8am. Most tours start at 9am or 9:30am.

      Kind regards,

  • Derek

    Hello, how much would it be for a private tour for 5 pax with an infant (9 months old)? We’re interested on going to Kayangan Lake, Coral Garden, Twin Lagoon, Barracuda Lake, Siete Pecados if possible. I would also like to have lunch in one of the island/beach. Can you please let me know how much would the tour be with lunch and entrance fee? Thanks
