5 days
Coron/El Nido/Busuanga, Palawan

The 5-day El Nido to Coron/Busuanga Tour (or Coron/Busuanga to El Nido) is a private and exclusive sea safari. It is not a group expedition. The trip runs upon demand using a large two-level motorized outrigger banca with two engines. Participants have their own single or double sea kayaks, sit-ins unless otherwise requested. These are used by participants to wend their way between idyllic sand-ringed and palm-fringed islands and explore the myriad lagoons of the Calamian-El Nido archipelago. With the boat shadowing, you can do as much or as little kayaking as you wish, professionally supervised by your kayak guide. The program is flexible, allowing sleeping on board or camping on the beaches near the boat’s nightly anchorage.

If it’s camping, access to your private island hideaway is by sea kayak paddled by you, or by your guide in a tiny outrigger or double kayak who’ll set up your comfy tent complete with mattress & pillow, hotel linen and towel. Most campsites will have a basic toilet. Where there isn’t a loo, there’ll be a small tented bathroom with a chemical toilet: Your shower is a solar bag shower under the stars.

A camp cook will prepare your meal, served with your favorite beverage. What happens for the rest of the evening can be read in the stars.

This is one of Tribal Adventures’ signature million heavenly star-rated experiences!

Thanks for your query about the Coron-El Nido 5-day sea safari. The expedition runs either way, starting or finishing in Coron or El Nido. And there is an extension of two days should the trip start or finish at Tribal Adventures’ expedition base, SandCastles in Cheey, Busuanga. Thanks

Hands down the most amazing experience you can have in the Philippines. The islands between Coron and El Nido are surreal, giving you a sense of being truly in a tropical paradise and it doesn’t end there. You’ll explore reefs with so much coral and marine life, you’ll never see the ocean the same again. Tribal adventures puts on a fabulous trip that you’ll remember for a lifetime.
