We are Big Dream Boatman Expeditions. We specialise in award winning multi-day Island Expeditions in Coron and El Nido, the heart and soul of the Philippines, Palawan.

We have one aim: to make our guests happy. And we love what we do.

Whilst we know that our expedition will take you to the most beautiful places you've ever seen, we believe it is our people that will leave the lasting impression in your hearts.

We are proud to be Trip Advisor's #1 Phillippines Boat Trip as well as to be awarded the Travellers Choice Award since our first year running. We invite you to read our reviews.

This is our story, what's yours?

About Big Dream Boatman

BIG DREAM BOAT MAN was born out of frustration with the 'day trip' culture. Crowded boats, too much divide between guest and crew, lack of time to get to know anybody... it all sucked. The vision for BDBM was not just to see the sights, but for guests and crew to share a true experience together that they would remember for a lifetime.
