Can't fly, which boat?

Hey guys,

We are looking at going to Coron and have found info about the boat getting to Coron from El Nido, but due to baggage restrictions at the Busuanga airport we simply cannot fly out without paying silly money in fees (We are travelling for 6 months and our bags are 20kg).

So I wonder if anyone can help me with info about boats out of Coron, ideally to Cebu or in that area...

Each person can buy up to 10kg when booking through the website.

You have 20kg so it should be able to cover (assume there are 2 of you).

Have I misunderstood your question?

2 Go Travel's MV 'St Augustine of Hippo' is currently sailing once a week on Sundays (depart 1630 hours) from Coron, Busuanga Island to Manila (arrive 0630 Mondays). Book online - 2 Go is a very reputable operator on which I have travelled a few times. If you can afford it, book a suite (they are good value for two people):

There used to be a ship plying the Coron-Cebu route but I know it already stopped. I hope I am wrong.
