Last month, my friend* and I fortunately got a discounted voucher for an extreme watersports package at Serena Watersports for 3,000php with lunch (70% off!).
|Voucher for 3,000php/pax with lunch|
The package we had included the following activities:
1. Speed Boat Tour
The tour began at around 10:00 AM. Pickup spot was at the front of Maribago Bluewaters, Lapu-Lapu. From there, the guide takes you to the small pier for the speed boat. The tour runs for about 15-30 minutes along the coast of Mactan, where you could see most of the premiere beach resorts.
The second activity is the parasail flight experience. The duration of the flight is roughly 15 minutes, two people at a time. We were just two, so yeah.
3. Jetski Adventure Ride
The package included lunch, but you can opt to exclude this. (There's no corkage if you bring your own provision.) The lunch wasn't fancy, and it was ala carte style. But the food was plenty! We had grilled pork chop, chicken, squid, shrimp, and pork BBQ; rice; three types of fruits (i.e., banana, mango, and pineapple); rice; juice; and water. Sulit, if you ask me.
No photo for this activity, because we simply forgot to take a picture. The activity was good for 30 minutes, but you can opt to stop earlier (we did).
6. Banana Boat Ride
The banana boat is good for 8 people, but since there was only the two of us, we had the boat all to ourselves. The ride lasts for about 15 minutes, and at the end of the ride, you won't be deliberately off-loaded from the boat (a relief for slipped disc-sufferers like me). But I think you can ask Kuya Driver to off-load you for the thrill.
No photos here, because we have no GoPro. hehe! The last activity was snorkeling. To be honest, there wasn't much to see; the coral reefs weren't very fascinating. But there were a lot of fish, and since our host was called Serena, you could see a mermaid statue right below the sea, right beside an abandoned (sunken) speedboat.
All in all, the adventure was all worth it! For inquiries, you can contact Serena Watersports through the following contact details:
