Boat Operator Ben

Ben’s brother lives in Sibaltan, where he also has a boat, and a hut for you to sleep in the dorm loft if you’d like a rural experience for only 100-200 a night. Having a boat in Sibaltan makes it possible to take a boat trip to Linapacan or even Coron and all the way back to Sibaltan for a good price.

Pictures soon to follow but his prices are as follows (he has many sized boats, and a speedboat):

Sibaltan to Linapacan (or back), 3 days

  • big boat (maximum 8pax) – 23,000p
  • small boat (max 3pax) – 17,000p (size of waves allowing)

Sibaltan to Coron (or back – or only from Coron to Sibaltan), 3 days

  • big boat (maximum 8pax) – 30,000p
  • small boat (max 3pax) – 20,000p (size of waves allowing)

Coron to Linapacan (a little more than Sibaltan to Linapacan, due to the greater distance)

* for all of the above, 2,000p extra for each additional day.

Speedboat (waves have to be flat enough – always 4pax max)

  • Coron to Linapacan, 1 hour 10 min., 8,000p
  • Sibaltan to Linapacan, 50 min., 7,000p
  • only around Linapacan (such as wakeboarding on our kiteboards): 3,000p for half day, 4,000p for full day (plus an extra 1,000p if you want to rent our kiteboards)

Snorkels are 50p per day and the usual additional costs of 100p per meal or rental of tent and sleeping on land or a deserted island.

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.

We are a family operation managing private custom boat tours in the beautiful Palawan area, and are happy to help travelers with their plans through the country, having traveled a lot of it ourselves and planning to visit it all.
