Travel between Coron and El Nido

Everything you need to know to plan your trip.

Updated on September 14, 2022

First, we would like to clarify that before the pandemic, the ferry companies operated two crossings per day, but now operations have been significantly reduced, although everything is slowly returning to normal.

Currently (but this information can change at any time) Montenegro Fast Craft and Atienza operate the crossing on alternate days three times a week.
There is also a flight by Air Swift three times a week.

While for Atienza it is possible to book the ticket online on our website, tickets for Montenegro must be purchased at the port on the day of departure.
Every day we receive several emails from travellers asking if we can book Montenegro. Yes, we can, but only if it is part of a fully comprehensive travel package that includes hotels, tours and transfers.

Jomalia and Phimal ferries are currently suspended until further notice. However, Phimal should resume before the end of 2022.
