Frequently Asked Questions about BDBM expeditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book my expedition in advance?

Yes, we strongly recommend for you to book your trip in advance. Many of our trips sell out 2-3 months in advance.

What is the Deposit Payment and Remainder Payment?

To reserve your place on the expedition we collect an online deposit of 40% of the total amount of the trip fee. Then, prior to your departure you will be sent an email with a payment link with the 60% remainder payment. This must be settled before your trip sets off.

Do we sleep on the boat?

No. Every night around sunset we arrive at our own basecamp for the evening. Here you will sleep in native style accommodation directly on the beach.

When is the best time to visit Palawan?

Palawan's good weather season is from October through to July. This is peak season and also when we run our Expeditions. We do not operate August and September because we do not believe it is safe to do so.
