My friend Tim and I recently paddled a couple of FC Wisper XPs down the coast of Palawan, Philippines. We started near El Nido and paddled to just outside Port Barton, a total distance of around 120 kms. On Day 2 we caught the edge of Tropical Storm Washi, which killed more than 1200 people on Mindanao. It made for a crazy night in our Hennessy Hammocks and some huge swells for a couple of days afterward.
Beautiful coastline with lots of deserted beaches to camp on. No problem finding water or getting help/advice from the locals.
We met a fellow folding kayaker who had been living near Port Barton for 25 years. He reckons we were the first to make that trip in kayaks.

I did a short video here.

Great video, and I'm very envious of your trip - must have required a lot of planning, I imagine.
