How to get from Coron to Palawan (Puerto Princesa)

The sea and land distance from Coron to Puerto Princesa in Palawan is approximately 400 kilometres via Puerto Princesa North Road. If you are planning to make your way to Palawan's gateway after you've explored the Calamianes Islands, you can do so by air or by sea.

Traveling by air is obviously the most convenient option but there aren't a lot of choices. Expect to shell out around PHP8,400 for a one-way ticket and a total travel time of 2 hours and 40 minutes.

should update delay news with board not by mouth

Ferry was rescheduled from 8am on Saturday morning to 4am on Sunday morning, then we didn't even leave until 6am?? What was the point? Ferry itself was not exactly pleasant, not what I would call clean, music in the island bar was stupidly loud, air conditioning was absolutely freezing, would not recommend you take the ferry if you have ANY other option. Just pay the extra dollars for a flight!!

The boat trip was fine, we did the most basic with no air con but the walls were open so it was a nice temperature and you get quite a bit of space and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Lunch and dinner weren’t great and you have to pay if you want to take them away. The only down side was the ticket, it’s said on the ticket that to check in I’d need my ID and my E-Ticket but when I got there I was told it needed to be printed so I had to walk down the road and pay 100 pesos (50 pesos per ticket) in the 12Go office to print them out, this is way to much - if it was clearer I could have done it for free in my hotel or for 10 pesos in the town. It also says you have to check in 4 hours before the departure time, we got there an hour and a half before because it seemed like a bit much and we were waiting around for ages. The I formation on the ticket needs to be better

I'm giving 2 stars due to the service before getting onto the ferry. We were told we could not use our "e -ticket" because it had to be printed out , even though the exact definition of e-ticket is that it's a online ticket. We got sent to the nearby office where the internet was very slow, they also had no WiFi ( I also had a Philippines Sim card which had no signal in that area) , after 30 mins we finally got onto our emails to print from their computer behind the desk. Before printing we were asked to hand over 50 peso each to print our tickets for us, or it would come out the girls pay check. I think that is ridiculous since we already paid for a "e - ticket" , we should have at least got an email warning us to print. Comfort was fine - I found I had enough room and there is clean sheets available. Food is mostly rice meals. No vegetarian food so I had frozen vegetables and rice for lunch and dinner - not ideal. My partner had some sort of meat dish which was ok for him. Entertainment was good and kept everyone in Christmas spirit. Ferry arrive promptly and staff were very friendly and helpful on the ferry.
