Boat from El Nido to Coron

Hi,

We will be flying into PP in a few weeks and are planning to travel from there up to El Nido, then go from El Nido to Coron, however the boat sounds long and not very pleasant. Is it as bad as it sounds? I get quite sea sick so am worried that it will be rough.

It's making me wonder if we should skip El Nido altogether and only do Coron. Would we be missing out if we did this?

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks

Carla

Did you look at Tao Expeditions? Takes 5 days to go to Coron, but seems to be very very impressive!

Go to El Nido via PP and use the Roro Bus. it will mean that you will need to fly back to Manila.

Hi Greuf - we contacted Tao but got no reply from them, I think they are fully booked.

Tommo - are you recommending that we don't do Coron at all, and only do El Nido?

No. Both Coron and El Nido has its merit.

What Tommo is suggesting is that going from Coron to El Nido, taking a flight Manila is more comfortable though it involved one airport transfer.

Thanks MH you got it exactly right.

I heard some horror stories from travellers I met in El Nido who did the Coron El Nido banca ride.
