There is a reason why this tour is named the “ultimate”: it brings you all El Nido island hopping has to offer… and much more! You will be island hopping, snorkeling, overnight camping, discovering beautiful islands, lagoons, white-sand beaches and sandbars. And you will do so in places that are practically uninhabited, where your boat will most of the time be the only one in sight. This is the adventure part of this tour.
For this reason, you must also be aware that the Ultimate Adventure Tour is not for everyone. It is an adventure and it requires participants to be in good health conditions. Once at sea, you’ll be far from any medical infrastructures. For this reason, please do not apply if you’re not certain of your ability to participate.
The following itinerary describes the tour from El Nido to Coron. If you’re doing it from Coron to El Nido, the order of the destinations will be in the reverse way.
Your Ultimate Adventure Tour will depart from El Nido town in the morning. After a first island hopping and a 30-45 minutes snorkeling time, we will stop on a beach and the crew will grill and cook a delicious lunch buffet for you. We will continue to sail up north in the afternoon, passing by this splendid tropical islands scenery and bringing you to more places (such as Tacling island and Cobra island) before setting camp for the night on a deserted island. There, our crew will prepare the huts or install the tents for you and build a big bonfire while you can relax drinking a rhum & coke.
The next day, we will bring you to the Linapacan islands, which have some of the cleanest and clearest waters on earth. It’s a great place where to snorkel and relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in Palawan. The program of this second day generally includes exploring a turtle sanctuary, jumping from a 6 meters-high cliff, and meeting the Tagbuana, the local people of Linapacan, to discover their culture and way of life. But depending on the length of your tour (3 to 5 days), you will explore the untouched tropical paradise of Linapacan for 1 to 2 days.
On the next morning, we will continue to sail up north, to start exploring the eastern part of Culion. Among other things, you will discover what is probably the most beautiful sandbar in Palawan, in Ditaytayan island… After a night spent on a beach, we will head to Coron for a new island hopping tour, to discover its snorkeling spots filled with thousands of fishes.
Around 4:30 PM, you will land in Coron, the end point of the Ultimate Adventure Tour. From there you can decide to continue your adventure in Palawan and Philippines, maybe going up to Mindoro, or taking a fast-craft back to El Nido on the next day. The rest of the adventure is yours to choose!
This itinerary is for the expeditions going from El Nido to Coron. But we have just as many Coron to El Nido expeditions for you to join (see the schedules here). The order of the trip will then be from Coron to Culion and Linapacan, with an end point in El Nido. Please note that the exact itinerary of each tour is unique, as we may adjust it depending on several conditions, including the weather, in order to offer you the best experience at the time you’re there.
