If you have tried the banana boat ride, then the Boracay Parasailing is a much more upgraded version of it. This time, you are attached to a boat while sailing in the sky! A parachute is attached to you to keep you afloat and stable in the air while the boat navigates along the beach. The strong winds can be scary and you might feel like you will be blown away. But the aerial view of the beach and the island is a fantastic experience. BOOK THIS ACTIVITY
After flying over the beach, now it’s time to head down underwater for the Helmet Diving. For this activity, you don’t need to know how to dive or control your breath. Don’t worry too because qualified dive instructors will brief you and assist you all throughout. The only thing you need to do is wear an oxygen pumped helmet and be surprised on how easily you can walk on the ocean floor. The experience allows you to walk underwater and view marine life up close.BOOK THIS ACTIVITY
Paraw Sailing is not just your regular boat ride. What makes Paraw Sailing a must-try is the romantic and nostalgic experience it gives. The best time to try is during sunset.

UFO and Hurricane Ride
Flying, diving, and riding, the activities in Boracay do not stop there. If you want to spin around or ride above waves, then the UFO and Hurricane Ride is another water sport to try in Boracay. You can choose which ride to take depending the shape of the inflatable boat you choose to ride. Then, a speed boat pulls the inflatable bloat while you spin, get tossed in the water, and sway from side to side.BOOK THIS ACTIVITY

The Jet Ski Ride is a classic. Almost all tourists who go to Boracay have tried the Jet Ski Ride at least once.

Banana Boat Ride
There’s more than one adrenaline-filled activity in Boracay, and we highly recommend this one: taking an exciting water ride on a banana boat with your friends. Strap on a life vest and hold on tight as your banana boat is pulled through the deep blue sea – at speeds as fast as 30kph! Don’t worry: banana boating is typically supervised by expert safety handlers on the island, so thrill-seekers will be in good hands. Skip the line, book your ticket online.
Feel like taking a break from the splashing and swimming? Just get a big beach blanket, spread it out on the fine white sand, and settle down for a long, lazy afternoon in paradise. Let the relaxing sound of the rolling waves soothe you into a quick nap, or bring a fun beach read to help you while away the hours in the sun. Boracay’s beaches are an incredible attraction in themselves – no shame in bumming around and enjoying them!
