The Tour

After a delayed departure due to an incoming typhoon, we couldn't have been more excited to be starting the three day expedition from Coron to El Nido. Our first day contained the most time spent on the boat and the longest stretch of sailing of all the three days. Of course, this was broken up with some time for snorkelling along the way, which couldn’t have been better! The water was clear, the coral was diverse and there were countless shoals of colourful fish. We even saw some squid and a fluorescent green lobster! What's more were the beautiful backdrops of golden beaches and deep, green jungles!

Our first island stop was primarily to restock the fresh water on the boat, but we were also free to explore the little fishing village, experience how the locals live and even look inside their school, with it's walls plastered in English teaching materials and times tables. Our crew and co-explorers swam in the village's very own swimming pool and played basketball with the children. Honestly, it felt a bit intrusive but we soon felt very welcome and a part of their little community.
