Who We Are

About Us

We are one of the pioneers of eco-tourism in Coron, Palawan with almost two decades of experience.

Mae and Al Linsangan

At the helm of Coron Galeri Lokals and Calamianes Expeditions Ecotours is the husband-and-wife team of Al and Mae Linsangan.

Al hails from a family that has lived in Coron for five generations. Al spent years immersing himself in the culture and life of the tribal communities. He is also a passionate and internationally-recognized nature photographer. His work has since been featured in coffee table books, travel publications and post cards.

His extensive knowledge of the indigenous cultural communities and the Calamianes Islands’ treasures has provided him with insights in crafting tour products and packages. In addition, he is a staunch advocate of local community-based ecotourism and spearheaded a number of initiatives that promote and advance awareness when it comes to socially sustainable tourism.

Mae is from Puerto Princesa City. She provides invaluable support in managing the operations and day-to-day details of Calamianes Expeditions Ecotours. She is in charge of tourist relations, as well as in coordinating with the organization’s partner communities to source out manpower, supplies and other tourism-related materials.

Our Mission and Passion

We aim to be your Coron tour provider of choice as we promote the beauties of Coron. For more than a decade, we have been providing a wide range of tourism-related services with Coron, Palawan as our base.

Our passion: To showcase and safeguard Coron and the rest of the Calamianes’ natural, cultural and historical treasures.

This passion is translated into these four areas:

Sustainable tourism

We believe in preserving Coron’s beauty so that it can still be enjoyed by the succeeding generations. As a member of The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), we endeavor towards “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people.” We actively make every effort to create and increase awareness for ecotourism best practices, both on the part of tourism professionals and tourists.

Community Building

As we grow, our partner-communities grow with us. Calamianes Expeditions & Ecotours adopts a business model that cultivates and promotes community participation and provides locals with economic opportunities. Our tour packages incorporate locally-produced products and services provided by individuals belonging to our adopted communities. This means that with each tour, our clients contribute to building and enriching the community. We also aim at highlighting the artistry of local craftsmen and the culture of the indigenous people – the Tagbanua.

Conservation

Our commitment is to be the go-to organization when it comes to environmental-friendly best practices. We have studied each element of our tours and continually endeavor to integrate sustainability in our operations and products. We also work closely with both the government and the private sector in making sustainable tourism best practices universal for all providers and stakeholders.

Innovation

As Coron’s pioneer in community-based eco-tourism, we work to maintain and promote that spirit of invention and creativity among our team and partners. We are committed to provide quality innovative products and services to our clients.
