Have you ever walked and breathed underwater?
Strolling underwater has never been this easier. All you need to do is put a huge helmet on your head and you’re good to go! It doesn’t even require you to swim.
Marine Walk lets you experience the depths of the blue waters in Boracay without piggy backing oxygen tanks on your back. Also known as Reef Walk, or Helmet Dive, Marine Walk gives you the feels of staying underwater for 30 minutes.
Discover The Boracay Island Marine Walk
This activity maybe a no-brainer compared to other water activities in Boracay, but once you are already on the seabed, a whole new aquatic world bestows a relaxing feeling. The colorful fishes, the beautiful corals, and the powdery white sand are contributing factors. It’s definitely a pause from all the exhausting activities in the island.
First timers don’t need to fret, too, because there’s a short orientation on a few things that you will or not do once submerged. You will also be taught about the basic underwater signal to communicate with each other such as:
Go down – make a thumbs-down
Go up – make a thumbs-up
Okay – Okay sign (form hand to letter “d”)
Any problem – Wave hand while pointing all fingers forward
Just a few tips while underwater, though: If pressure clogs your ear, just hold your nose and blow. Temperature underwater is also pretty cold, too.
Offered within the price range of 200PHP (off-peak season) to 900PHP (peak season) per person, Marine Walk lets you wear a 30kg helmet which only weighs around 2-3kg underwater. It also comes with a free DVD compilation of videos and photos during your stay underwater, and a few pieces of bread to feed Nemo, and friends.
