Coron to El Nido  

Most Amazing Tour!

My sister and I started our 2,5 weeks philippines vacation with this tour. And it was already the Highligh of it! We loved every part of it. It was well organised and the tour guides were supernice. It was like a boat trip with friends. They showed us the most stunning places around Coron. The islands where we spent the nights were so beautiful. We played games, talked a lot and just had so much fun. When I think of the tour now I feel like it was a dream.... I would recommend it to everyone!

1. About the Expedition

Introduced by popular demand this expedition takes you from Coron to EL Nido over 3 nights and 4 days. Up to 16 travellers join the newly built BDBM banka boat and the passionate crew to make the adventure crossing exploring the remote islands of Palawan.

Its a chance to experience true island life, snorkelling, eating fresh food, perhaps you will try freediving, or spearfishing or stand up paddle. Then stopping each night on an island to watch sunset and sleep with the stars.

This trip is more intense than Coron Island Life as we have further to travel so its ideal for those who may have less time in Palawan and want to maximise each day.

2. Who is it for?

This trip is ideal for those with an adventurous spirit and an open mind. People who are looking for real experiences when they travel and to meet like minded people. While there is no upper age limit we request you to be at least 14 years of age and physically healthy.

3. Why travel with Big Dream Boatman?

In our opinion what makes us most special is our people. Big Dream Boatman is like a family, one you become a part of the second you step on the boat. As beautiful as Palawan is we believe the best memories come from sharing it with great people. BDBM just seems to attract great people both as crew and guest.
