Who are Big Dream Boatman?

We are a small group of local tour guides in Coron and a british traveller who met in November 2016. Krish is the original big dream boat man and he met Oli, the british traveller in late 2016.

Once Oli experienced Krish's personal expedition they decided to work together to share it with other travellers because nobody was offering the same kind of experience, it was all 'Coron Tour Packages'.
