Boracay 2012 (Water Adventure trip)

Hi guys, sorry i was out for a couple of days! I’ve been very busy being a housewife as i will be working fulltime soon on our small business in Bukidnon. Anyways, I’m going to continue my travel blog about our Family trip at Boracay last summer.
After the Island hopping, the next day we decided to do water activities the whole day. So first stop, we went to go Banana Boat Riding. It was my first time to try it and I was very excited to try. the whole family was up for it. My other sister, was our photographer as she has rode the banana boat already. It was very hilarious as we were all laughing and trying to keep our eyes open because the salt water was getting inside our eyes! At first we said that if they could extend our 15 minutes banana boat ride to 20 because we thought that 15 minutes was too short. Little did we know that 15 minutes was a very long adventure packed laugh trip time! My Family did enjoy the whole banana boat ride.

Having fun the Banana Way!
I tell you guys, this is the best water adventure activity that we ever did in Boracay as a whole family! In this ride we did a lot of screaming-shouting-cursing(a bit.. hehehe)-crying-laughing time. We were as if holding on for our dear lives! It was so much fun because we were laughing and holding on to the raft which was very slippery by the way because of the water, and it was being pulled by a small speed boat. The whole 15 mins was filled with a lot of adrenaline rush for us! My sister and her boyfriend got thrown out of the raft a couple of times! My brother who was also on a separate raft with my mother was thrown out also! They said, you’re flying fish experience wont be the same if you weren’t thrown out. So if you want an adrenaline rush water activity try the Flying Fish, you wont regret it!
holding on!!
see our screaming faces? hehe

We were very excited to do helmet diving because its our first time also. After the nerve wracking, muscle clenching adrenaline pumping flying fish ride, we headed down to the middle of the sea. We rode a small pump boat going to the dive area. We chose to dive using the oxygen tanks instead of using the helmets using compressor for you to breath under water. So our helmet dive was a bit expensive. So before we went on to dive, we had a short orientation on the do’s and don’ts while we’re underwater. Our package also included pictures and videos of us under water!
What a way to end our water activity day! We went home to our hotel with sore arms and muscles but it was all worth it! Remembering those times still bring smiles to us! It was indeed an adventure!
Banana Boat – 350 per person
Flying Fish – 600 per person
Helmet diving – 900 per person. (pictures and video included)
*Prices are subjected to change depending on the tour package we got a discounted price because there were so many of us.
