#3 Two day Dugong watching tour near Coron


Less than an hour from Coron, Palawan lies Green Gecko’s very own private “Dugong Island”. This amazing 2 day tour is organized by Green Gecko Eco Tours and The HUb Backpackers Hangout Hostel in Coron. This is one of the only places left in the Philippines where you can still go and swim with the shy and elusive dugongs. Increased pollution has degraded and reduced the sea grass that the dugongs feed on, threatening the species as a whole. A close relative of the manatee (sea cow), adult dugongs can grow up to 2.8 m long and weigh 300 kg.
