kayaking boracay

to see Boracay from a sea side perspective, one can do kayaking. water activities like sailing can give you a similar experience, but it requires you to go as a group or else you get to rent it alone and might not be that cheap.like cycling, kayaking is both cheap and an active healthy activity. cheap because you can rent it for an hour for only P150 or about $3. just like cycling, kayaking is one of my favorite water activity. remember my post on kayaking in Calayo Batangas?healthy because it gives you the opportunity to exercise and build up your muscles. one need not to be a sports enthusiast to enjoy paddling this light floating equipment. it's easy to learn and it does not require a lot of practice.the downside though is that it's use is limited to calm waters. kayaking on rough waters is not recommended. whether you've been kayaking for years or just starting, you need to make sure that you wear your lifevest.there are just a few shops in Boracay that offers kayak rental. just ask your hotel or resort information clerk to assist you in finding one.

This is a fabulous place, Dong Ho. And those blue sails certainly make a very interesting photographic element. I like how you captured them in frame.

Abou said...

the place looks familiar he he

Webradio said...

Great photos for this nice place... I like kayaking...
Ouah !

See You later !

Carver said...

What a beautiful place and you captured it so well with these photographs. One of my sisters does a lot of kayaking. I did a little when I was younger but haven't in a long time although who knows maybe I will again at some point. You are right that it's great exercise.

Photo Cache said...

I like to watch the people sail and kayak and I take their pictures. I'm not too courageous with water activities/sports. Did you go kayaking?

L.Reis said...

This Summer I did kayaking on the Zêzere river...I loved it...as usual, your photos awake a desire to do something different :)

Victor Kiu said...

i never tried Kayaking before! Wish to try it one day! seems you have a lot of fun there!

alicesg said...

Nice photos of the island. Ah, you got company, my eldest son love kayaking too. I am just contented to sit under the tree to relax and listen to some nice music. :)

aiLee920 said...

hey, want to ask you something, because it seems that you live in cebu? am i right?!

the donG said...

>eki, boracay is really fabulous. thanks a lot.

>abou, definitely you've been there several times already.

>webradio, when you visit the philippines, ill join you on one kayaking activity.

>hi carver, wow! hopefully she'll eb able to visit the philippines. i can join her for a day of kayaking.

>photo cache, yes i do and it's one of my favorite water sports. i did kayak boracay for an hour and these photos were taken while kayaking.

>l.reis, wow! now i get to know something about you more than just taking really really good pictures.

>victor, i guarantee you that you'll surely enjoy it. it's easy anf fun.

>hi alicesg, really? might as well invite him to visit the philippines. so you enjoy more of just relaxing by the beach.

>hi ailee, i stayed in cebu for five years but im not from cebu. how may i help you?

Lawstude said...

bro, nakapagpost ka pa pala kagabi, galing talaga walang pagod hehehe.

kahit minsan di ko pa na-try mag-kayak, sarap cguro nyan. ganda ng mga view ng shores taken from the waters.

ingat bro ang til d next trip.

dyosa said...

I never tried Kayaking in Boracay. All I ever do all day is sunbathe, swim and take pictures. Maybe I should give it a shot when I get to visit Boracay again. Hay, miss ko na ang Bora.

luna miranda said...

i've never tried kayaking, i'm just too lazy.:D but i still have that memory of richard gomez in a bench ad many years ago.:D

chubskulit said...

i guess i have done kayaking before but in different form lol... lumaki kasi ako sa tabing dagat and Papa taught me how to do pagsasagwan sa maliit na bangka hehehe..

Bout your question on my post, its not pay per click.. it pays you to make a review of certain products and services. So far, i earned 35 bucks from them out of four opps that i reviewed, so it wasnt bad.. if you're interedted, you may sign up, am sure madami ka opps na makukuha kasi mataas na PR mo... no har in trying so, give it a shot..

misty said...

sarap siguro maglayag dyan noh, especially if you do it with your special someone hmmmnn...

joops said...

Kayaking is really a good exercise and its a lot of fun to do it.

Borneo Falcon said...

It's quite hard to keep the kayak stable and still you able to capture some nice photos from the kayak.

After reading your blog, I do have plan to visit Philippines in the future

Phivos Nicolaides said...

Wanterful place and excellent shots!

kegler747 said...

I love kayaking, para kse nakakarelax. Gusto ko yung solo lang ako kse pag yung tandem kayak eh nakakapagod lalo na pag di marunong ang kasama mo.

Musta naman ang Aurora? I heard sa news na bumaha daw dun lalo na sa Baler.

PUSANG-gala said...

I never tried kayaking before. must be fun, and difficult too. I agree, the beach looks different on a seaside experience.....

...I agree, mas mura lagi kung group kayo.

Fjordan Allego said...

wow! di ko pa naeexperience mag kayak.. hmm... hindi pa rin naman kasi ako nakakarating ng Bora.. pero kung sakaling makarating man ako dun, isa ito sa mga itatry ko.. syempre.. gusto kong itry na lahat hahaha!!

Marites said...

very nice pics of Bora. it's just a pity that it's now overdeveloped. I love the Bora years ago than now. Still, i love your pics especially the ones taken with the waters.

the donG said...

>oman, hehehe... pahabol kahit pagod kasi due na rin ang mga post. try mong magkayak. enjoy na enjoy mas ok pag marami kayo.

maraming maraming salamat kahapon. isa yon sa pinaka astig na lakad ko. ba naman tatlong probinsyang maganda.

>hi dyosa, yes! give it a shot. better if you have a friend with you not in one kayak. better if each one will rent its own kayak.

>hi luna, hehehe... talagang hindi mo malimutan yon ah. sana masubukan mo kahit once. basta kalmado ang tubig, masarap magkayak.

>hi chubskulit, hehehe... medyo similar nga ang kayak sa pagbabangka. galing naman at sa tatay mo pa ito natutunan. cool pala tatay mo.

salamat sa info. hindi ko pa yata ready kumita kasi kung minsan nalilito na rin ang mga readers kung alin ang paid post. pero open pa rin naman ako.

>hi misty, kahit nga tumambay lang at kwentuhan sulit na sulit na kasi ganda talaga sa boracay.

>hi joops, tama ka dyan! salamat sa pagbisita dito.

>borneo, you're right about balancing but it just requires a little practice. just inform us if you'll visit the philippines. we'll see how we can help you.

>philip, thanks a lot!

>kegler, ako din. usually yung single talaga ginagamit ko. masaya pag marami kayo pero lahat may kanya kanyang kayak.

ayos na ayos ang aurora-nueva ecija-nueva vizcaya trip namin ni lawstude. daming rewards! hindi naman baha sa may dingalan. hindi kami pumunta ng baler.

>pusang-gala, subukan mo. lalo na pag marami kayo mas enjoy. basta siguraduhin lang na kalmado ang dagat at may lifevest.

>fjordz, pwede ka ring magkayak sa may batangas area. sa anilao at calayo nakapagkayak na rin ako.

maganda nga na masubukan lahat ng water sports.

>hi marites, that's true. but a beach person like me, i still love boracay.

Asian Traveler said...

Since I don't know hot to swim I never dared to try any aquatic sports. :( Anyhow, I enjoyed your awesome photos especially the blue sailing boats.

Everlito (ever) Villacruz said...

di ko pa naranasan ang mag kayak.sarap siguro maranasan,try ko nga minsan.

REDLAN said...

hindi pa ako naka experience kahit boating. hindi rin ako marunong lumangoy. ayayay.

sinusulit mo palagi ang bakasyon o visit sa isang lugar. am just here reading that experience, still satisfied.

Miong said...

i tried kayaking in Plantation Bay here in Lapu-Lapu but Boracay is different.hehe

Nanaybelen said...

hayyy.. tumanda na ako pero ngayon lang ako'y naiinganyo sa kayaki dahil sa mga post mo. sana naman bago magretire ay maranasan ko yan

~~m$. DoNNA~~ said...

hello!
bakit wala kang chatbox??
hehehe.. maghanap ba??

excited na talaga akong mag bora! whew!

SandyCarlson said...

Ah ,thse blue sails are very beautiful in that gorgeous water!

ALiNe said...

ANSAKit naman sa braso yan eh..hahah

JM said...

I will never be tired looking at your photos of those beautiful beaches!
Keep on posting! :-)

aquamarine said...

kayaking in bora?must be fun..there are really a lot of things you can do and enjoy in boracay!...thanks for the interesting post,keep it up!

lagal[og] said...

uy, kayaking, grabe miss ko na magkayak dom. kumusta na nga pala nueva vizcaya trip nyo ni oman?

Share my point of view... said...

While we were on our StarCruise trip, we were offered the chance of kayaking in the Thailand waters. Instead we chose a much safer option. Let's just say that I was afraid of the whole thing capsizing and leaving me gasping for air.

Helena de Tróia said...

We should always try new things!. great!

Ely said...

never been to Boracay. With all the commercialization going on, siguro sira-sira na ang lugar pag nakarating ako dito.

the donG said...

>asian traveler, i also know a lot of friends who does not know how to swim yet enjoys kayaking. you should try it.

>ever, subukan mo. maeenjoy ka lalo na pag amarami kayo.

>redlan, oo madali din lang naman kasi ang kayaking. hindi kailangan marunong maglangoy kasi may life vest naman.

>miong, ayos yon. kasi kalmado ang tubig pag hindi running water.

>nanaybelen, pwede nyong gawin yan pagpunta nyo po ng boracay. may ganyan din naman sa batangas.

>ms donna, iniisip ko pa kung maglalagay ako.

>hi sandy, thanks!

>hi aline, tama. kaya dapat mag stretching bago magkayak at pagkatapos magkayak.

>jm, thanks!

>aquamarine, yes that's one thing that boracay offers at its best.

>oggie, saya dami din naming napuntahan. mahahabang byahe pero masaya kada segundo. hehehe... abangan na lang ang post.

>hi share, hahaha... i still suggest that you try kayaking. it's easy to learn.

>hi helena, i agree!

>ely, hindi naman siguro kasi kahit papaano nandun pa rin naman ang charm nito. at pag naayos na ang mga conflict ngayon, siguradong babalik ang kagandahan ng isla.

carlotta said...

i remember kayaking for several hours straight some four years before at a beach. and i remember the excruciating pain i've had in my shoulders the rest of the day. and that meant i needed more exercise! hahahaha! but yeah, kayaking is fun. =)lk

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Dong, ilang araw ka ba dyan sa Bora? Mukhang you're staying for good there na... :)

Chyng said...

It's tiring! Di ko hobby yan.
There are parts sa Bora na not so fab ang water no?

Anyway

>>> about collecting LRT/MRT tickets, can i know why you're collecting it? because sometimes, you get those worn out ones.

dear, it's the pleasure i get from getting out the lrt station w/out giving up your card. not the card itself. yeah, pagpuslit to ng card. bad!!!

KRIS JASPER said...

Imagine that is $3 (something like £1.50?).

That's just the price of one bag of Doritos here in UK.

But if I spend that in Pinas, I'd surely enjoy it.

Pietro said...

Great shots of those beautiful places. The images with the blue sails are so attractive.

Shawie said...

my husband too- loves kayak but I'm always scared of water adventure...as if I didn't grow up in an island, hahaha! really but at least now, I love boating in the lake- coz it's not that bumpy at all, hahaha!
hope you have a great vacation in Boracay, sarap mag bakasyon:)

dodong flores said...

Hi, dong Ho. This is an awesome storytelling about Boracay. Boracay is not much of my interest though but you manage to catch my attention with your straightforward writing style and the excellent photos your provided here...

By the way, as for your question kung pwede ba tumayo sa Pasig Ferry, the answer is not. I had observed there were people who would want to get outside while the boat is moving but they were not allowed to do such until the boat docked to its wharf...

Good day to you and keep on posting...

Carrie Hayes said...

Love the colors, the blues are wonderful!

Skippyheart said...

It is starting to get cold here now again--

wish I am there kayaking a boracay ;)

Sidney said...

I did some kayaking in Boracay... but with my white skin I was burned by the sun... took me weeks to recover... lost a lot of skin during that adventure... ;-)

But sure...its fun... but bring along a lot of suncream.

Rio said...

dong,may pangalan ka din bang binigay sa sinakyan mo sa pag kakayaking??hehe

emar said...

Kayaking would be delightful in Boracay! It's one of the best sea paradises in the world.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments.
