Group boat tours between El Nido and Coron
There are three types of group tours:
- 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
- closed private
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 even rent our wakeboard, wakesurf board, kayaks and/or spearguns for some added fun.
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!

Here is our feedback on the expedition. The feedback is constructive and reflects our view of things.
The crew & the boat:
We had the impression that the crew had been reorganised as they hardly seemed to know each other. We also had the impression that the boat had been additionally chartered. Perhaps because one of the ferries between Coron and El Nido was cancelled and the travellers now had to switch to the expedition boats. Whatever! In any case, the crew took very good care of us, we really must mention that. The crew really went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful crossing! Really great!
Catering & drinks:
The meals were delicious and perfectly adequate. There was also plenty of water. What was missing was beer, we only had rum and cola with us. We know that excessive alcohol consumption on such expeditions is not conducive to success, but a few beers would certainly have been ok. On the last day we organised a few beers ourselves.
There were 9 of us on the boat, which we were very pleased about. Everyone got on very well together. We were almost the same age and had a lot of fun together. It also made our crossing a lot better. It was also a great constellation for our son.
The tours between the islands:
You sent us a very clear plan (see below) but unfortunately we have to say that we only saw half of what you offered us. We visited 3 spots per day. Unfortunately, we didn't see the spots near Coron (Twin Lagoon, Skeleton Wreck etc.) that were of particular interest to us.
It was a really great experience for us. The crew was great, the group size was great (not 14 people but only 9) and so was what we saw. Unfortunately, we also have to say that we would have expected a bit more beautiful spots for the money, just like you offered us. And as mentioned above, we all had the impression that the boat was used in addition and that this caused the deviations. In our eyes, it's not the crew's fault, it probably didn't work out so well elsewhere
Heard stories of random groups and, nah!
