CORON TO EL NIDO EXPEDITION
Rated #1 and awarded Travellers' Choice by TripAdvisor since 2019.
About Our Coron to El Nido Expedition (4D3N)
One of our most popular Palawan expeditions takes you from Coron to El Nido over 4 days and 3 nights. A maximum of 20 travellers and the passionate crew set sail together in our Coron to El Nido Expedition to explore the remote islands of Palawan, where you explore what you don't have the chance to in daily El Nido and Coron Island Hopping tours. (Tour A,B,C,D).
This is an opportunity to build real relationships with both locals and travellers, explore at your own pace, without that tourist feeling and explore Island Life in a truly unique way.
In our Coron to El Nido Tour, there will be activities like snorkelling, kayaking, stand up paddle, and beach volleyball for those who prefer a bit more adventure, or if you just want to chill, read a book, or take a walk, the choice is yours. The onboard chef will serve fresh food and drinks with three meals per day. Everything is included, even alcohol.
At the end of each day during our Coron to El Nido boat trip, you will arrive on an exclusive island around sunset, have dinner and share stories as you prepare to sleep with the stars in a native cottage or a beach camping setup.

“Hidden beaches and coves, private lakes and emerald lagoons, fresh native cuisine and rustic and comfortable cabins, cottages and camping are Big Dream Boatman's signature experiences. Travel with them and you'll get to know the region's hidden gems”

Trip Advisor’s Best Philippines Expedition

“Big Dream Boatman wants to showcase the hidden gems of Palawan to travelers... By day, travelers can go spearfishing, snorkeling, learn about indigenous traditions, explore fishing villages and get to know the crew.”

The Boat
Introducing our extraordinary banka boat, purposebuilt for your ultimate adventure during our famous boat trip from Coron to El Nido. Unimpressed with the standard offerings, we took matters into our own hands and crafted the most comfortable and secure boat in Palawan. Complete with a convenient toilet, cushioned seating, side nets, and ample space on the upper and lower deck for sunbathing and relaxation our boat will ensure your journey is carried in comfort and style!

Accommodation
Our rustic accommodations, nestled directly on sandy beaches, offer bamboo cottages or camping, both with essential comforts  clean mattresses, mosquito nets, and fans. Embrace the charm of island life with basic yet wellmaintained amenities, including fresh water showers and manual flush toilets. While our setup is modest, with limited electricity and no air conditioning, it's the perfect backdrop to unwind under starlit skies, lulled by the ocean's melody.

The Team
Despite the incredible natural beauty you will experience during the expedition, the best thing about Big Dream Boatman is our team. They are the most passionate, kindhearted and hardworking people. They are happy and friendly, and ready to welcome you on board as part of the family the second you step on to the boat. From the chef, to the mechanic, the guide and the boatman, and of course the captain, they are just friends you haven't met yet!

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the Coron to El Nido adventure for?
Coron to El Nido is ideal for those with an adventurous spirit and an open mind. People seeking authentic experiences when they travel and who wish to meet likeminded people. While there is no upper age limit, we request you to be at least 14 years of age and physically healthy.
What is the Itinerary?
During our Palawan expeditions, we don't have a fixed itinerary. There are over 20 spots to choose from and our itinerary depends on the crowd at those spots, weather conditions and staff's picks :) Popular Palawan tourist spots, such as Kayangan Lake, Banana Island, Lusong Gunboat Shipwreck, Paradise Beach and Nacpan Beach are possible candidates for our itinerary, however, we tend to focus on the more hidden gems of El Nido, Coron and Linapacan. We encourage guests who really wish to see a specific site to visit it before or after to avoid disappointment.
When is a good time to visit?
We run our Coron El Nido Expeditions from midOctober until midJuly.
We do not operate during the monsoon season (August and September), even for private trips, as the weather is very unpredictable and we do not believe it is safe to do so.
Prices, Payments and Inclusions
The price for this expedition is USUALLY $649 USD. We are currently running a promo of $599 USD .
You can secure your place with 40% of the payment, then the remainder payment will be sent via a link two weeks prior to your departure and must be settled before trip setoff.
The payment includes island entrance fees, meals, drinks (including alcohol), towels, masks/snorkel kayaks, SUPs and 3 nights island style accommodations (cottages and camping).
We send you a postbooking expedition preparation letter with more info and tips of what to bring etc. after filling out the guest form.
Coron to El Nido
Why Travel With Us?
We take feedback from every guest, and we implement the requested changes so that our Coron to El Nido adventure has been crafted and moulded by the people it's meant to serve.

That's why we have a limited number on board the boat, we don’t like it to feel overcrowded and we found with too many people it messes with the social dynamics.

That's also why we don't charge for anything during Coron to El Nido Island Hopping Tour and try to include everything (including limited alcohol) in our fee

This may be why we continue to rank as number 1 on Trip Advisor and remain the goto expedition for the biggest names in travel, but there's something else.
Lastly, it's hard to put this into words, but the clue is in our name. Have you ever been around people who are so passionate about what they do that you find it infectious?
That's probably what makes us most special. Our people. The family you become a part of the second you step on the boat.
