Corong Galeri started as a souvenir shop that showcased the artistry of the Calamian locals, including the tribal minorities hailing from the islands and the upland communities. Through the years, Corong Galeri has worked to address the needs of both locals and tourists.
This resulted in a number of enterprises:
As part of their advocacy towards community-based ecotourism, proprietors Al and Mae Linsangan spearheaded Calamianes Expeditions Ecotours. This initiative provides quality and value-for-money tour products while ensuring community involvement and growth, conservation and sustainable tourism best practices.
Calamianes Expeditions Ecotours offers tourism and travel products where the main services providers and vendors are locals from an adopted community. From the guides, boat hires, operations service providers to vendors, we ensure that our tours feature locals and locally sourced materials. As a result, each tour activity we provide directly benefits at least seven families in our adopted community.
