Canoeing and Kayaking
Palawan was voted the best island in the world two years in a row by a major online travel magazine. Look up “clearest waters in the world” and you will find Linapacan in first place. Excellent snorkeling, 52 islands in the Linapacan area alone, many of them deserted. Sleep on your own deserted island, discover caves, a Spanish fortress, jungle trails by a local boat tour and much more.
Explore the 2,000km loop around Palawan island for the adventure of your life! Or just do some small guided tours. Over the span of a year, to our island we’ve had guests doing the entire journey, coming on kayaks, long boards or even gas propelled rafts. The only thing you need to potentially worry about is south of Puerto Princesa, where the pirates may cause you problems, or even worse the 6m long sea crocodiles! Some prefer to take their kayak across the mainland and skip the south.
Below is a map of the hot spots we recommend for our private boat tours between El Nido and Coron. Come by visit our little nature camp any time.
