Kayaking in Palawan, Philippines


It was an exciting day yesterday when my first kayaking guests showed up, starting the 2000km stretch around Palawan island from Coron and back. The waves might be too rough in the open ocean north of Coron, so it may be better to just take the overnight sleeper 2Go ferry from Manila. Lots of storage space there.

We are located about half way between Coron and El Nido, so make sure you drop by on your way. But be weary about the southern tip of Palawan, as it has a reputation of pirates, who even invade Malaysian waters off the island of Borneo to the south. You can check out the boat tours shaded section of our suggested travel itinerary plans for the Palawan area for a map of interesting spots to stop off at between Coron and El Nido. In the Linapacan area alone there are 52 islands to explore, mostly deserted. So easy shelter if there happen to be rough seas.

If you don’t have your own kayak, you can rent one in Coron, or our own banca paddle boat. We can show you our map of trails we created through the jungle of several islands if you want to give your arms a rest and your legs a workout. If you have your own tent you can crash out on our ample beach space for only 100p a night, and join us in the evenings around the fire.

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.
