Join A Group Or Castaway Expeditions


Who is the trip for?

Our Join Group or Castaway Expeditions are for the adventure travelers of all ages who don’t have the time to join our 5day 4night Open Group Expedition. We see the likes of long time adventurers, professionals on an adventurous break to the young and first time explorers. There are 2 options:

  1. Join a group: pay a boat transfer fee and join our group for a few days.
  2. Get set up on a remote island for 3 days with all the tools you need. It is a social adventurous outdoor experience for those who want a little more than the average tour package.

Our Join Group or Castaway Expeditions are suitable for travelers of all ages. Join Group or Castaway Expeditions caters from 8-18 guests on each expedition. We cannot confirm the size of the groups in advance.

What time of year is good to visit?

Our Join Group or Castaway Expeditions run all year round. There are two main seasons in the Philippines, the high season October to May, which is called Amihan’- North East winds which bring the dry cool north east winds. And June to September, ‘Habagat’- South West winds which bring the rainy season, so pack your rain jacket and expect some rainy days if you are travelling during these months.

Over Christmas and the New Year Holiday we run special 6day/5night Open Group Experiences you can join.

We have a set schedule for the season which you can choose from in respect to your availability and convenience. We have boats, departing from Coron and departing from El Nido. All boats leave at the same day scheduled.

OUR EXPEDITIONS EXPLORE THE RAW AND REMOTE ISLANDS BETWEEN EL NIDO AND CORON. THEY ARE AWESOME YET THEY ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE! If you are the type who believes what makes a difference between an ordeal from adventure is one’s attitude, then this trip might be for you. This is an Expedition, not a tour… you will camp on islands, you may be bitten by mosquitoes and other insects, you may get wet from the rain while camping or traveling on the boat, boat engines may break down, the seas will not be calm and smooth at all times but your safety will always be prioritized. The expedition may be easy or it may be uncomfortable or even hard sometimes.

Before applying to take part in our expedition you must understand that what we offer is not a tour or a hotel.

Palawan Isles understand that what we do and offer is difficult and can be at times out of the comfort zone of some individuals. A place of the unknown and the unexpected. This is the lifestyle of the men and women of Palawan Isles and as much as they love it, they understand that it is not for everyone. We do not guarantee a nice relaxing time, in fact, we do not guarantee anything. We just provide all the tools to explore this awesome archipelago. & In the end … YOU and your adventurous spirit are the deciding factors!

We highly recommend all travelers must have their own Travel Insurance. Remember that you will be traveling in a remote island. You should get a travel-insurance policy that cover loss and medical problems, missed and Scheduled Airline Failure connection, theft, and dangerous activities.
