A popular route for travellers trying to get to Coron is to take a bus from Puerto Princesa City up to El Nido to experience some of the island hopping there and then take a ferry from El Nido.
From El Nido to Coron
El Nido is a popular tourist hub at the north end of the main island of Palawan. To get to Coron from El Nido, you must take a ferry. These ferries take approximately 8 hours and run daily. Tickets can be bought on the day in El Nido. The ferry will most likely drop you off at Coron Port where you must take a tricycle to Coron town. If you are staying with us, give us a call when you arrive at the port and we can have our boat waiting for you at La Sirenetta Pier ready to pick you up when you arrive.
Taking a boat to Coron from Manila or other parts of Palawan is an exciting and affordable way for you to travel, specially if you have heavy luggage and plenty of time to spare, for the distances between the different islands are huge and boat schedules change frequently, meaning you may have to wait for a few nights in order to get your boat.
If you have never taken a boat in the Philippines or in other not so rich countries you should know that some ships can be very uncomfortable to travel with. The best shipping line you can take to Coron is the weekly 2GO Travel (former Superferry) from Manila or from Puerto Princesa City. A more adventurous ride is promised when taking one of the cargo vessels operated by San Nicholas Lines which runs Manila-Coron-Manila thrice per week or the Atienza Shipping Lines running Manila-Coron-Liminangcong (El Nido).
If you are planning to travel to Coron from El Nido or vice versa, you can take also one of numerous outrigger boats e.g. The M/BCA Jessebel which ply the route twice per week. Costs for this trip are 1800php per person (one way) and travel time is ca. 8 hours depending on weather conditions. Be prepared for a sometimes rough ride when crossing the Linapacan Strait between the Palawan main island and the Calamian Group!
You may also be able to get one of the irregular and unscheduled boat rides from Batangas City or San Jose, Mindoro.
