Private overnight camping excursion from Coron to El Nido

Has anyone partaken in any of the overnight, camping, island hopping, excursions from Coron to El Nido? Looking to travel with my husband at the end of October. Looking for 4/6 nights, private adventure. Wondering if anyone has any advice, tips or know personally of someone who would be great to go with. Any info helps! Thank you!! :)

Plenty of reviews on the major companies here on Tripadvisor for you to read to see "how was it"

Not sure if they are running again but this activity was suspended due to a rape on one of the trips.

Thank you!! I see some of the major companies on here but, after doing some extensive search there are other options that are available for much cheaper it seems. Wanting to really make sure we go with someone reputable so I don't have to bring out my inner Ninja! ;) Thanks again for your response!

My understanding is following the alleged rape of two women on a camping expedition by the boatmen camping in Palawan has been banned even on organised tours, I would check up with the company.

It would be my husband and I. Not like that matters really?? But, do you happen to know roughly what year this happened? Just really doing as much research as I can prior. I've dealt with some crazy stuff in other countries and don't want to have to be on alert all the time I guess.

The two women were accompanied by their two boyfriends who went into town to buy some more drink. If you google Slovakian women Palawan rape you will get the story.
