Escape the tourist trap and fall in love with the serenity, beauty and majesty of Coron Island the Tribal way–by skimming across glassy tropical waters in a true sea kayak. 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.

There’s no better way to experience Coron than by paddling, as the native Tagbanua, who own Coron Island, do.  We paddle the 15 km circuit of the northwest coast with sit-in sea kayaks that can do the distance in a day with ease.

You will paddle through mangroves to Tagbanua Lagoon and on to Hear-a-Pin-Drop Lagoon which are accessible only by sea kayak. You will snorkel Kayangan Lake and gaze down at the extraordinarily picturesque view of the lagoon below–arguably Philippine tourism’s most photographed natural scene.
