Ever wondered how it feels to rise above the water like fishes flying over the sea?
One of Boracay’s many water activities – the Flyfish, will give you the kind of adrenaline rush you will always remember from your Boracay escapade.
Flyfish is basically a huge inflatable raft dragged by a speeding boat. The faster the speedboat, the higher the raft drifts, throwing you in every direction. All you have to do is focus, exert more strength, and hold on. More importantly, hold on. Once you lose grip, you’ll never want to let go of the raft.
The flyfish is a tiring yet exhilarating 15-minute ride especially to someone who does not perform any physical activities in his everyday life. 15 minutes will feel like an eternity of water slamming and gliding. What adds to the thrill is the uncontrolled laughter and screaming whilst being shaken, thrown, and flown away.
Never mind the fact that the speedboat drastically changes direction all the time you will just find yourself floating in the air, or worst, thrown in the water, and left behind. You don’t want to be that someone who is left behind while others are having the time of their life.
Wild, Reckless And Exhilarating …
Exhaustion after riding the flyfish is a guarantee. But it’s truly worth a repeat. If you have not been in it, it’s worth a try. There’s an assurance that it’s going to be your favorite ride in Boracay. It is definitely a different kind of fun and adventure, more like wild, reckless and exhilarating. Two things to remember before getting on the ride of your life, though:
1. Leave your sunnies behind and …
2. Do not put too much sunscreen unless you like being thrown in the water because of your butter fingers.
Guides usually offer Flyfish for 800PHP ($18USD) per person, minimum of 3 persons in a raft. The raft can hold up to maximum of 6 people. Well, the many-er, as they always say, the better. Rumor has it that Flyfish came in Boracay first before being enjoyed in other tourist destinations of the country.
