Day 3 Boracay
Breakfast at the hotel. Not just like getting a tan in the beach, Boracay has a lot to offer. I have selected few of the water sport activities that you can do.
Try walking on the ocean floor and feed the fish under the sea with helmet diving. An awesome and a whole new experience to explore the beauty of the hidden world under.
Helmet Diving allows you to climb down a ladder until you reach a sea bed (around 10 ft. below the surface) while wearing a helmet made of glass plates. The helmet makes it possible for you to breathe underwater while marveling at Boracay's colorful sea floor with an abundance of tropical fish!

Much like waterskiing, wakeboarding provides extra advantages that snowboarders and surfers may recognize right away in this activity. Many first timers in Boracay recognize the similarity of this sport to surfing and snowboarding. In fact, wakeboarding is a lot more like snowboarding because of the flexibility of the board.
Instead of two skiis which tend to keep you in a straight line, you can twist and turn behind the boat and even flip yourself upside down in ways you never imagined. Over the past decade this is a sport that is gaining in popularity each year. It has been enriched by recent world championships which are becoming more challenging and prestigious than ever before. Boracay is one of the most popular places in the Philippines to go wakeboarding and the sport has gained special recognition here due to the world renowned park near Naga-City, Wake Park World, Philippines which has drawn wakeboarders from all over the world. WPW, as it is called, is a worldclass site with artificial lakes and state of the art towing installations. After the World Wakeboard Association hosted one of their World Series Championships at this site, Boracay also became a premier destination for wakeboarders from all over the world. Of course, in Boracay, you are left to your own devices with Mother Nature and the boat which tows you through the water but the motorboats will certainly have enough horsepower for the wildest experts in the business. If you like the extreme sensation of snowboarding without the danger of hitting a tree or flying off a cliff, wakeboarding is definitely for you. The waves from the motorboat and the natural ocean waves can still get extremely tricky even for the experts and you are going to get some great practice for the winter season when you decide
Cost per person AED 250.00
