Boracay Adventures: Exploration (Day 2)

After our team-building activities on the morning of our second day (facilitated by Patio Pacific) we were again set for more adventures the island offers.  What’s the most typical sight you see on popular beaches?  Banana boats!

Because of the size of our group we used the bigger banana boat (photo by Lea Batino)

Believe it or not it was my first time to ride a banana boat because I wasn’t too much motivated before to ride one, and apparently it’s a great way to have to mini tour of the island.  You can see the island from different angles and distances, nice!  It was a good thing that groups are allowed to have a photographer on the speed boat that pulls the banana boat so we have some pictures to boast!

Since the banana boat only covered a small area of Tablas Strait (the body of water in front of White Beach) and not all of us were able to do so, we were off for a more “in depth” tour of Boracay.

A day earlier we were viewing the underwater world from the sea floor with reef walking, this time around from the surface by snorkeling.  We were brought to this great snorkeling sight and how I wished I had an underwater camera to share the wonderful sights we saw.

As we were gradually moving back to Station 2 (making a complete loop of Boracay Island) we were presented with one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen.  My camera unfortunately ran out of batteries so I can only sigh and marvel at nature’s beauty.

A beautiful day concluded upon us but of course being our last night in Boracay we didn’t let the night pass without exploring the night life (what happened in Boracay stays in Boracay :)).  I was glad that I was able to get running out of my system on our first day so the runner in me wasn’t as guilty with the pleasures the island offered.

What?! (A sign beside a pool)

Up next is our last day in Boracay together with some tips I learned with this memorable trip to paradise.
