El Nido - Coron Boat, is there a safe version?

Posted by Harry05 on 23/1/2014 at 03:06

Read some "horror" stories about safety issues of the boats running from El Nido to Coron even till sinking of the boat.

How is the safety situation now? Is there a difference between companies, if yes, which are the best? Do they provide lifejackets in case of emergency? End of january a good period to do this?

Also contacted El Nido Boutique and Art cafe, they don't have any boats leaving on friday (but I prefer to travel on a friday due to my itinirary). Anyone knows if there are other boats leaving on friday?

Actually booked a cheap flight from Puerto Princesa till Busuanga after about two weeks from now but it seems like PAL Express stopped flying this leg which means I have to fly via Manila (but still the same price) but that is gonna cost my quite some time.

Of course any other advice on this is welcome.
