Are you looking for the real experiences when you travel?


Do you ever feel like you've 'got it a bit wrong' when you travel somewhere and find yourself spending a lot of time waiting around in your hotel?

Are you open to meeting like minded travellers and going on an adventure of a lifetime?
 
If so then you may be who we're looking for...
 

If you would prefer to sleep in native island cottages falling asleep by the sea or camping while looking up at the stars - rather than stuffy hotels back in town.

And if you prefer to support a company that actively contributes to it's local environment & community then we welcome you.

This is not your typical island hopping tour.

This is the BDBM Coron Island Life Expedition, in the heart and soul of the Philippines' Palawan.

We are proud to be Trip Advisor's #1 Expedition Operator in Coron, Palawan.
