Of course that's half meant and his friends on Facebook love making fun of each other's status.
We are addicted to social media for different reasons and Rupert is a personification of our desire to always stay in the loop specially when we travel.
At any rate, if you are planning to go to Coron, here are the Island Hopping Rates you need to be ready for.
when you walk around consistent with what are published online like this one from CALAMIANES XPEDITION ECOTOURS.
So what you do is just pick on the travel packages like picking a set meal in Jollibee. Unlike El Nido with simplified packages (A, B, C, D, E) ,There are so many tour packages reflecting the many attractions in the area o I suggest you make your research prior to flying here.
Here are the famous one.

Sun, Sea and Sand Ecotour --950/pax
Culion Historical Tour --1,150/pax
NOTE: All minimum 5 Pax
Inclusions: Licensed tour boat, life vest/ first aid kit, packed lunch, fruits and drinks, entrance fees, tour assistants.
1. buy your own food
2. pay for entrance fees
If you have limited time for Island hopping, I suggest you rent a boat so that you can just go to spots on your priority list. Buying food in the market is a little inconvenient but it could be fun. Your boat assistant will do the cooking don't worry. You can save a little too, but for me, the fact that you are in control of your time and destination is the most important thing. Here are the DIY Tour Rates.
