El Nido to Coron Destination Reviews

I don't think it was the operators fault, but wow that was a bumpy ride. Don't normally get seasick but almost did on this trip. The boat itself seemed decent. Not much legroom, but they let you step up to the bridge deck. Actually wish they would have not shown movies as it just served to keep me up.

Nice cabin. Smooth sailing. Just no system of 1st come 1st serve. Been at the terminal since 4am, others since 2am but those who came later got assisted first during ticketing

The boat was on time and luckily not much passengers. We can sit anywhere we wanted. The boat seems can withstand huge waves. Feels like being in a submarine when the boat battled with the waves and the water was leaking inside.

It says 3.5hrs but actually it took 5.5hrs. And the ferry was shaking a lot. Many people vomited. Terrible.

Not great at all. Some of the staff on board are nice but the boat is really old and there were lots of flies. The sea sickness was awful. About 50% of people were throwing up! I’d recommend getting a more expensive boat where you’d be more comfortable. The toilets were horrible and water would somehow leak in?

Well... the time of departure at 8h20am is convenient and that's pretty much it... It is indeed an old boat and you are in the lower deck with no air. It's a very rocky/bumpy ride and a lot of people got sick. The crew provided sickness bags. Good advice take medications for seasickness with you and warm clothes but for once the A.C. is not that cold. And yes the boat was late is was almost 5 hours and not 4 and you wait until they unload the luggages... If you want an early but not as early the 6am ferry and are not subject to seasickness it is okay... otherwise take a flight or the afternoon ferry.
