Montenegro shipping line runs a fast craft between El Nido and Coron. Trip takes 5 hrs. and the boat is air-conditioned. Only their booking office near the pier sells these tickets.
Other OUTRIGGER BOATS do regular trips between El Nido and Coron several days a week. These boats take min. 8 hrs. and are only advisable in good weather and calm sea.

It has not rained heavily for the past 5 days but that doesn't mean it won't. I would suggest you take a flight 2 or 3 days earlier than your scheduled flight to Aust. There are many advantages to this. Among them is that you can go see other places in Luzon.
flights get easily cancelled or delayed in Palawan because the planes are small.

As we plan our El Nido trip, we opt to either ride a public van at Fort Wally's for 600/pax or hire a private van. Time flexibility and travel comfort are factors we consider that made us decide to choose the later.
After hours of searching the net we came across Gerald Mosquera’s van for hire at Puerto Princesa. He is a very accommodating guy who always answers every inquiry promptly. Since we are a big group, 35 adults and 11 kids, on a Do-It-Yourself travel, he is a real big help on us. We do inquiry over the phone and email and everything went smoothly. He even assisted us on securing our underground river permit and arranging our buffet lunch. I highly recommend this guy, he’s always on time with our schedule and serves as our driving tourist guide. He’s contact number is 0917-562-2339.
On our way to El Nido, we are so thankful that we choose to hire a private van. Traveling from Puerto Princesa to El Nido by land is like riding a roller coaster for 5 hours. You’ll never know when the zig-zag road, sharp curves and up & down motion will end. Children could have been very dizzy if we opt to ride passenger-compacted public vans.

There are two ways to get to El Nido, Palawan. Either you go via PP or straight to ElNido via ITI plane. The latter is an expensive option (for us).
We took an aircon van from Fort Wally San Jose Terminal for PhP600(one way).This is cheaper because this is already part of our booking with elnidoboutiqueandartcafe. Walk in rate will be much higher by a few hundred pesos.. The trip will take about 5-6 hours with lunch stopover at Roxas. The road conditions are almost 80% ok with rough/dusty road from Roxas all the way to El Nido. But maybe in 2 years time this will all be ok. (as there road construction on going from Roxas to Taytay). There are sea scenery from Roxas.
We would recommend this mode of transpo if you have plenty of time and wants to maximize your money.. If you want to hire the van privately, you could contact Roy at # +639392526488/+639263950969

I came up to El Nido by jeepney and later flew to Coron/Busuanga. However, the very same day I did that, two of my friends came by the boat (M/V Jessabel) and we all met for a few days.
They said the boat was very rough. The winds made the trip take 10 hours. They said that the seats were not comfortable and had to take clothes out of their bags to sit on and add cushion.
Boat leaves ~5 times week (weather and season depending) and cost is approx 2200 PHP. Most hotels and travel desks in Coron and El Nido will help with bookings.

We hired a van for a return trip Puerto Princesa-El Nido-Puerto and with Side trip to Sabang. The cost was at 14K. He owns a nice Hi-ace van. He is a quite person but what's important is that he can take you to your destination safely.

Rent a bike at Pit Stop. You find the shop 20 meters around the corner from Squidos on the street towards the municipal hall / market.
Arnaud, the friendly French, has about 10 well maintained (!) motorbikes, 125 and 200 ccm Hondas. Ask him for sightseeing tips, visit outlaying villages, beaches or simply get motorized for your stay. You can rent a Pajero for a one-way trip to Puerto Princessa or a jeep for a rougher tour.
Bike rental was 700 / day; you may get a nice discount, if you take the bike for two weeks or so, just ask. This is particularly interesting, if you intent to stay outside El Nido, e.g. at Islandfront in Corong-corong and want to be mobile.

If you're a big group (5 or more), you can rent a van from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. Travel time is between 6-8 hours depending on road conditions. There are still large stretches that are unpaved and rocky.
We originally planned to do this and got in touch with Joseph Hidalgo of Hidalgo Rent a Car. Package was P15k roundtrip for the 5d/4n trip. You can rent his van to any point of Palawan. He is also a licensed tourist guide so he can give you a running commentary of Palawan while you are on the road :)

We didn't try this one but the trip is supposed to be about 6-8 hours. But since the buses are old, there's a tendency for them to break down along the way. This is what happened to the couple we met who also stayed in Marina. The bus broke down and they had to wait for 4 hours to get a ride or for it to be repaired. But this is the cheapest option of getting to El Nido. I think the fare is just P300 one-way.
Details from the other site:
Sweety transport offer 2 trips a day from El Nido to Puerto Princesa City passing through Taytay and Roxas. The trips generally takes around 8 hours and departures are between 7am and 9pm. The fare is 300 pesos. There is also a corresponding to trips from Puerto Princesa City back to El Nido each day, leaving between 7am and 9am.
Eulen Joy transport also offer 2 trips a day from El Nido to Puerto Princesa City passing through Taytay and Roxas. The fare is 300 pesos. Similarly they have two corresponding trips from Puerto Princesa City to El Nido. Leaving between 7am and 9am.
