open public, which have set schedules and which you can join
open private, which you or someone has proposed or committed to and which others can join
If you would like to join an open public tour or learn of available schedules, commit to an open private tour and be in charge of the schedule and who can join, or sign up for your own private tour, simply write to us and we’ll set things up for you.
If you would like to propose a group schedule and discuss with others of various possibilities, you can do so on our facebook group.
If forming or joining a private group tour, you can choose from accommodation where you’d like to stay, whether it is camping on a beach, or camping on your own island, traditional bamboo hut with fan on beach, or aircon hotel.
You can also choose the dates, duration and route of your tour (El Nido > Coron, Coron > El Nido, or other).
The snorkeling is awesome in this area, some say in the clearest waters in the world, as opposed to the generally murky waters of the tourist packed El Nido and Coron, so feel free to enjoy the beautiful nature at the group’s pace and not subject to the strict schedule of preplanned public group tours.
You can use this personality test we found if you’d like to limit your group to like-minded people, and if you are the main organizer, we can figure out the pricing to give you a discount, possibly even go for free!
In any case, this is a beautiful, remote area, where quite possibly the only crowds you’ll meet is your own. Because of the rare traffic passing through, the locals are much friendlier than in the touristy towns. So nestle in around a warm, beach bonfire for an unforgettable experience!
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!!
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.
