Boating and Sailing, Boracay Island
Boating is a must do when you are in Boracay Island. There are so many interesting sites to see and enjoy aside from the ever popular White Beach. Many beautiful unspoiled beaches still can be found in this enchanting island. Personally, I find the White Beach too populous for my taste and prefer the isolation of other less frequented beaches. You can swim and snorkel on these beaches in pure joy and isolation.
"Maam boating kayo?" you will hear this everywhere. Locals trying to sell you out for a day trip of boating all over Boracay Island. As cheap as P500 - P3000 most of them include snorkel gears and lunch. You will be accompanied with the captain and an assistant. We rented a boat that will fit 30 ppl but there were 13 of us - so we had room to move and have a nice lunch on the boat while sight seeing. They took as to a snorkeling place in the middle of the island and of course Puka Island is a must to go.
There are a lot of agents offering boating trips that include skindiving (with equipment) near Crocodile Island, lunch at a secluded beach and a tour around the island. One thing I don't like about it was that it was too long. What we did was we hired a boat for PHP500.00. It included skindiving (with equipment) near Crocodile Island, a tour around the island, and a swim on a secluded beach. There were six of us so that was a good deal. It only took us about two hours compared to the almost four to six hours it takes the regular package.
Paraw ride is available around the island. Some go to sunbathe in the middle of the sea, some to catch the sunset. Best reviewed Paraw Captain is Capt. Joey
