Coron to San Jose on Bunso boat Jan 23, 2013
Time that this boat leaves Coron is variable... Usually it should be Monday and Thursday, but it could be any of the days around. The boat is called Bunso and it is a medium size bangha with questionable ability to float, but at least it is wooden. Inside of the boat is a hell for anyone claustrophobic or people that suffer from motion sickness. It is around 5ft tall with lots of cargo placed all over and most of the windows boarded. I stayed on the rooftop that has tarp and wave covers on the side. It was fairly pleasant sleep over the course of 7 hours that this trip took.

Arrival to San Jose is another thing... they stop 30m from the shore and than you are supposed to get into small boats pushed by the guys with long sticks, and are almost flipping over. I was shaking good 10 min after I got of that little dingy.

Prices are 1000p for big boat, and 10p for dingy.
