Boracay Series Part 6: Island hop, Snorkel, Fly (fish) & Eat-all-u-can @ the Island Paradise

This post is part of a series on our trip to Boracay in December 2012, during my four-week home leave. This is my second chance to visit this island paradise, while it’s a first time for Buboy. And we were both looking forward to experiencing that indeed, It’s More Fun in The Philippines! :)


Day 3 in Boracay Island, Philippines

It’s our Day 3 in Boracay, at excited gumising ang mga bata! 🙂

Parasailing, parasailing, here we go!

The sun was up and shining that morning but it was also quite windy.


Good Morning White Beach!

When we met Kuya Arnel, he informed that all parasailing activities were suspended until further notice (insert very sad face here). We were really up for it esp. the rate went down to Php 700/pax, when it was around Php 1,500/pax prior.


Purnadang parasailing, dbale mmyang hapon baka pwede na.

So instead, we went straight to our next activity, Island hopping/boating/snorkeling. We paid Php 1,500/ all in (boat, guides, snorkel gear, bread for fish). Our group consisted of Buboy & me, his cousin Jonathan & gf and two young ladies (yung share nila sa boat diretso na kay Kuya Arnel, Pasko naman e, hehe).



We registered sa designated booth sa Station 3, short briefing then boarded the boat. We headed to Station 1 and beyond…


Kaway kaway si Jonathan sa kabilang boat, 🙂


Pacman’s Crib

There’s an entrance fee if you want to go up Pacman’s deck. Nah. Pass. Ok na kami sa piktyur. 🙂

Instead, we went down to the next beach for a quick stroll/dip. And Buboy surely didn’t pass up the photo op opportunity. T_T

After that stop, we went to one of the snorkeling sites and had the time of our lives searching for Nemo and his friends. Sorry naman, walang pictures sa sobrang excitement (at sa takot ding mabasa tong telepono ko). It was nevertheless a nice site, daming fish, pero ung corals not so colorful (o natural color na nila yun, sensha na hinde nagresearch).

Nag enjoy kami sobra until umawat na si Kuya boatman. Move along na raw, Hanung petsa na?! hehe.

Kaso hindi na raw carry umikot paikot nor go to Puka Beach. Sayang, nakarating nako run last time, pero sina Buboy hindi pa. Dbale, may next time pa naman mashallah.


Going to Angol Point

Row, row, row your boat… joke lang. Motorized ang bangka.

Inhale, exhale the beauty of nature all around….


Angol Point

The last stop was after Angol Point. Restaurant sya actually, at tom jones na sina Kuya boatman kaya hinayaan naming sila to have their lunch (free sa kanila). Samin hinde, kaya nag fruit shakes lang kami. We had other plans for lunch hehe.


Deja Vu

Around 2pm kami natapos and we went to Deja Vu for lunch. Set of Sinigang, Chopsuey, Fried Chicken, Iced Tea & 5 rice servings all for Php 650/only, Sulit lah! Sarap pa ng ambiance dine, nakapagsiesta pa kami, 🙂



Time passed so quickly 330pm na pala! Parasailing still suspended, so we opted for Flying Fish! Php 300/pax

Sorry ulit, no photos, nasa kabilang cam na naiwan sa Pinas (paging Buboy, paupload naman jan).

But highly recommended if you’re up to experience super adrenaline rush. Nahulog kami lahat wtf (wat the fish) pero game na game umulit ng paulit ulit LOL! Ansakit ng mga buto-buto ko the next day, ahahahaha.

430pm back to station, bagsak sa buhangin at ininspeksyon ang laman loob kung kumpleto. Tsek! Afternoon dip until sunset…this is the life…


After Flying Fish, body parts intact, check! 🙂

Back to hostel, freshened up and rested a bit (matanda na tlaga, laging may pahinga in between activities ahahaha).

Then labas ulit for evening stroll & dinner…

See food  – Seafood everywhere, yum!

We chose one of the dinner buffet offers, sina Jonathan namili (criteria: maraming seafood). Reasonable @ Php250/pax with unlimited Iced tea, 🙂


Plate #1 (Kaliwali Diet muna my fren)


Plate # 2 & 3… (sulit ang Php250/- hehe)

After dinner, we strolled again (para matagtag ng konti ang kinain) and saw numerous Isaw stalls. Kaso hindi pako nagaburp kaya pass muna. May bukas pa Leandra, may bukas pa… 🙂


Isaw galore!

The hotels and restos definitely look different at night. Esp, Christmas season, andaming Christmas lights and decors, 🙂


Christmas @ Boracay Mandarin

Around 10pm, solb na kami sa stroll and called it a night, walked back to our hostel and dived to bed, zzzzz….

Tomorrow would be our 4th and last day in Island Paradise, 🙂
