Yes, but IN PRINCIPLE you pay a single person supplement of 75%. (The supplement is 50% if the package involved includes unavoidable air or ship fare).What about rafting?
Though rafting is a group activity, Tribal Adventures pledges to run all trips even with one paying guest. The supplement paid by a single paying rafter partially goes to support another paddler in the raft.
Inclement weather (or guest choice) may prevent camping and even accommodation of guests in Kayak Inn’s native huts. A fire or other unforeseen event may also be the reason. Tribal Adventures pledges to provide alternate accommodation. There is no refund or set-off. A non-exhaustive list of approved inns, resorts and hotels follows:
- Boracay Whitewater: Unidos Beach Resort, Xavier Hotel
- Northern Palawan: Discovery Divers Resort, Princess of Coron, Darayonan Resort, SeaDive Resort, Safari Lodge, South Cay Bungalows, Coral Bay Resort
- Sagada: St Joseph’s, Log Cabin, Mapia-aw, Rock Inn
- Manila: Durban Street Inn, Southern Cross Hotel, Tower Inn

Accommodation check-in time is 1 pm and check-out time is 11 am, unless otherwise advised. The operator shall not be liable for additional costs on account of guests overstaying beyond designated check-out times.
Tipping of guides is not required and not encouraged. But the reality is that most guests do give generously to guides to express their appreciation for great experience.
Cash is out, food and cigarettes problematic, but crayons for children are gratefully accepted anywhere. In some communities (Tibiao and Tagbanua communities in Coron, used clothing is welcome). Elsewhere, it might be regarded as degrading charity. Play it by Ear!
Yes, and we do. Teachers on the Boracay Whitewater trip have spent very precious moments with school children in Nabas and Tibiao. Doctors often get engrossed in Culion, the former leper colony, when on Coron Kayak Expeditions: some return to treat the sick. Should you have a special interest kindly e-mail email@example.com so we may better tailor your trip.
Pack light. In Sagada, a pullover or jacket is needed against cool night air. But elsewhere, light, cool clothing is a must. A raincoat is recommended, a broad hat, sunglasses and lots of block out lotion and mosquito repellant. You should get your doctor’s advice about malaria medication. Malaria is endemic in Palawan, though it’s prevalence decreases going north. Tribal Adventures operates in the far northern islands of Palawan. Furthermore, malaria is more prevalent inland and Tribal Adventure trips are generally confined to the coastline. Advice: An inexpensive mosquito lotion called OFF is available locally; slap on a lot!
Children below the age of 12 are half price. Infants below 2 are charged 10%.
Ten. But we go with merely 1 as per single supplement pricing.
