So I went back to Coron on November 2013. My first time was in 2011.
On our first day, my friend and I had the time to ourselves. We had an open schedule and got bored. So I searched Trip Advisor for other things to do in Coron, aside from the island tours. Since we arrived in Coron at about 10am already, we cannot join in any island tour already, which starts at about 8-9am.
So anyway, we found Kingfisher as recommended by another Trip Advisor guest. We wasted no time in calling Kingfisher since there isn't much information about this place on the Net. To cut the long story short, yes, you can go to Kingfisher just like that. What you have to do is 1. call Kingfisher to confirm if they are open on that day and if they can accommodate you on their tours 2. Rent a trike or van that can take you to the place. A roundtrip trike service would cost you about PHP 700 to PHP 1000. This is for the whole trike already, not per pax. A Coron trike could fit about 5 passengers, excluding the driver. The travel time takes about 40-50 minutes. The road to the place is paved, except for the last part wherein the roads are still not cemented and you will be passing the middle of the farm.
What do you do in the place? The place is actually a sea and you could kayak (for about 1.5 hours roundtrip) in the mangroves. The place is very peaceful and we were very fortunate to have the place to ourselves. It was just us. The kayak rental is about PHP 400 per pax. Very interesting kayak around the mangroves with all the lush greenery and you could hear different birds chirping. It was quite an arm exercise I must say.
I would love to go back to this place to try trekking and firefly watching. Just be sure to bring your mosquito repellant.
Yes, this place is worth visiting.
