xploring the islands of Coron through a private tour is the best way to see the beauty Coron has to offer. If you're paying for a private tour we recommend avoiding the major tourist destinations and spending a relaxing day exploring the less visited, more distant islands and beaches of Coron. Usually 3 island are enough for one day of beaching, snorkeling and relaxing. The best and recommended way to arrange a private tour island hopping through Coron is through the CTBA (Calamian Tour Boat Association). This may also be your cheapest option. Here is a sample cost breakdown. Cost of Private Tour (Assuming 8pax) Item Cost PHP Cost USD Cost EUR Boat Fare P7100 $ $ Tour Guide P500 $ $ Food for 8 people(Prepared by chef on boat) P3000 $ € Beverages P2000 $ € TOTAL PRICE FOR GROUP P12600 $ € TOTAL PRICE PER PERSON(assuming split 8pax) P1575 $ € As you can see from the table above the price of a private tour is pretty reasonable. You *might* be able to find a cheaper price by asking around but we recommend the CTBA for their reliability. Note: The farther out you go the less tourists will be around. Try to leave as early as you can in the morning. We recommend leaving around 8:00am but all boats must wait for coast guard approval which is usually 8:00am-9:00am. Most tours start at 8:00am and return back to Coron Harbor at 5:00pm. Expect to spend your entire day out on the sea so take everything you will need for the day.
