Flying the skies & sinking deep below the ocean at Boracay

Finally I'm able to post up on my continuation for my Boracay trip. If you haven't checked out my previous post, you can check it out here:

So after having everything sponsored by Cebu Pacific Air, Agoda and Visa as I became Cebu Pacific Airline's first Blogger Ambassador, I was able to spend my time around Boracay doing pretty much everything I wanted!

One of the things I wanted to try was Helmet diving, as since I do not possess a diving license, that was the closest thing that I could do to walk the waters of the sea. We managed to find a guide named Eron at White beach and paid 4,000 Pesos ($100 USD) for the package which included island hopping, snorkelling, and the helmet diving activity which I thought was a fare price for the both of us.

We headed out by one of those traditional boats to the helmet diving station. It was a little slow compared to going with speedboats but well, its somewhat special as who can say you're able to sit on one of these traditional boats out? 

I'll start up with some of the pictures of the trip

So we reached the Diving Station, and we were briefed on how to helmet dive. Believe it or not, the helmet itself weighed 25kg! We went down with the ladder attached to the station, and then the weight of the helmet lesson with the buoyancy force pushing it up. (yeah i'm going all scientific here LOL)

Best part, there was a scuba diver to accompany us and take some shots of us! Have a look:

I can touch youuuuuuu



So after that we had island hopping and snorkelling, but well the waves were pretty rough that day, so we didn't enjoy much of it as it was a little scary, bad luck! would have been better if it were calmer but what can we do about mother nature? 


Eron introduced us to a parasailing package, and we took it since we had ample time that day. We paid another 3,000 pesos ($75 USD) for it, abit pricey this time but oh well, we just wanted to try it out. The parasailing company is named "Superman", which is pretty suitable since we were just going to be sailing the skies

We took a speed boat out this time, strapped the Parasail on both of us and we flew away with the wind! too bad I didn't have a camera up there to capture the view.

and the dip after we were coming in



Also another place we headed to was to Puka Shell Beach. famous for its shells and souvenirs, it was a great place to relax as it was not as busy as white beach, and the souvenirs were VERY CHEAP! definitely a place you should go to if you wanna get souvenirs! (yeah its much cheaper compared to station 2 and white beach)

Thats the end of this post! It was definitely a superb trip there and I wanna thank Michelle from Cebu Pacific Airlines & Carolyn from Visa for helping me out for everything! 

I still have one more trip! Any suggestions where I should go? :)
