This day trip is an exploration by kayak and native outrigger banca boat of the entire northwest coast of Coron Island, the direction of travel dependent upon the prevailing wind. (In general, from June to September we will head from west to east and from October to May from east to west.)

You’ll discover what regular tourists on group trips miss: private aqua-blue lagoons, a cave or two, wildlife like sea eagles, kingfishers, monkeys, monitor lizards & sea turtles. In short, serenity!

With the convenience of riding a motorised outrigger banca with personal sea kayaks atop, we effort to give the tourist traps a wide berth, to allow you to better fall in love with the serenity, beauty and majesty of Coron Island the Tribal way–by paddling.

In so doing, you will glide in to the nooks and crannies of an environment that is in National Geographic’s Top Ten list of places to visit on the planet.

And, yes, later when you thought you already had a vista overload, you will see Kayangan Lake and gaze down at the extraordinarily picturesque view of the lagoon below–arguably Philippine tourism’s most photographed natural scene. But if the sea of humanity is too great we will opt for Barracuda Lake, a thermal, meaning if you can free dive 17 metres you’ll get yourself into hot water!

Thanks Lerma and Vida for an excellent day on the water and thanks Greg for all your support and midnight replies. You’re a superb team and I’m glad I had a chance to explore the island with you.
