Getting To Coron (from El Nido)

There are daily boats from El Nido to Coron – however these are different boats that run on a scheduled basis, so the only sure fire way of knowing which boat to get is by inquiring at one of the many booking offices around town. The trip takes around 8-10 hours (weather dependent) and the ticket price includes lunch. Cost is around 1400p.

There are also expeditions which ply this route so you can opt to turn the journey into an adventure, stopping and staying on remote islands on the way. Whilst this is not a cheap option, reviews seem to suggest the experience is worth the price tag.

Getting To Port Barton (from El Nido)

Here you have the options of getting a Van or boat direct, or you can take a bus to Roxas and from there catch a jeepney to Port Barton. The latter must be researched thoroughly by asking locals in the know. There are very few trips from Roxas and you need to time your bus from El Nido so you don’t end up stuck there for a night. Tricycles do ply the Roxas – Port Barton route, but cost around 1500p

For a van, RICARO Transport have two trips a day in the high season: 8:00am & 1:00pm. To book a seat call Sanny on 09205025797. Cost 700p.

Boat prices and schedules change frequently, so its best to ask at a booking office for timetables & tickets.
