Terrible service. Be very wary. Best option would be to book flight from El Nido to Coron Ferry we boarded on 29th April cost PHP 2,900 and was late therefore departed at 2pm. Then told bad weather would delay arrival till 8pm. 3 1/2 hours becomes 6 hours. No bad weather, just an issue with boat according to caption. Be warned.

We booked with Travel Palawan Fast Boat Montenegro from El Nido to Coron. Safe and reliable boat from our perspective.

The journey took longer than we expected because the sea was pretty rough. Even if delayed, overall was good.
