BANANA BOAT
Culture: Low
Physicality: Medium
Schedule: Daily | 15 mins
Operation hours: 9am-6pm daily
What to wear: Swimwear, rush guard, long sleeved rashie, Pair of shorts
What to bring:  Extra change of clothes, Light towel, Toiletries, Sun screens, dry bag, extra cash, and Waterproof camera

What to expect?
If you're a group of 4 up to 6 people and want to experience the fun together, then Banana Boat is your best option!


For 15 minutes, this classic water activity boasts a wave splashing experience as it glides and wobbles off the coast offering a scenic tour to its riders. The Banana Boat is large inflatable long raft towed behind by a Jetski or speedboat in all directions. Typically, these boats are long, narrow, and either single or double hull, wherein the double-haul can occupy sixteen or more riders. More riders, more fun…right?

Make sure to straddle and hold on tightly to this raft so you won't fall over. Oh, and don't be surprised if some salty water will suddenly splash all over your face!

What to expect?
Unlikely as it sounds, but the Bandwagon activity assures you an exciting ride of your life!


Just like the Banana boat, this large inflatable raft can accommodate up to 6 persons and towed by a rushing speedboat or Jetski in every direction. The only difference is that three persons can sit in the front while the rest will have to stand at the back which means everyone must really hold on tight as this ride zips you through high-g turns! Sounds fun right? And since it has a wider bottom, it tends to bounce up in the air at times depending on the number of people, speed, and waves. Think you and your pals are brave enough for some wave actions?

Zip around the calm bay with the views of various naval ships, container cranes, stunning coastline, and the dramatic backdrop of the Zambales mountain range from afar. You can enjoy your own freedom if you want to go solo but sharing the ride with a friend or even your partner makes it more memorable (and romantic, if you know what we mean). ;)
