Boracay Day Tour Overview

Beyond Boracay, Tribal Adventures presents the real Philippines: hiking rainforests, rice terraces, and bamboo suspension bridges, to swinging like Tarzan into rock pools of the Bugtong Batu Waterfalls.

This Boracay day trip takes you to Kayak Inn, our basecamp for adventure along Tibiao River, Antique, about two hours from Boracay Island. The tour from Boracay starts early, meeting around 6AM, and is a FULL DAY of adventure activities, before returning to the island at around 6PM.

White Water Kayaking

From beginners to professional white-water kayakers, Tibiao River offers a thrill for all levels of adventurers. Depending on your skill level and the water conditions at the time, our guides will recommend the best part of the river to start and end your kayaking adventure. You will be taught basic kayak skills and will go for a practice paddle before facing the river rapids.

Trekking to Waterfalls

A 30-minute trek from Kayak Inn, hikers will find Bugtong Bato Falls. The hike takes you through upland rice fields and tropical rain forest before arriving at the base of the 7 layered waterfalls. Your guide will take you up to the 4th level of the falls, where you can admire the crash of the water and go for a cool dip. The adventurous can choose to climb a rope up the face of the falls against the rushing water, before jumping back into the pool below.

Survival Cooking

Up your survival skills by learning the art of preparing food and feasting native-style. Our local guides teach you how to cook rice and prepare local dishes with all natural cooking utensils. You eat what you cook, as well as quite a few other local dishes that the guides will have prepared – including the local coconut wine brew, “tuba”.

Kawa Hot Baths

From cooking with the locals to being cooked by the locals, the kawa hot baths are an experience not to be missed. These large metal wok-like tubs were traditionally used in the sugar production process. Today, they are used as hot baths, heated beneath by an open fire. The water is hot and the local leaves and flowers placed in the water give off an aroma that is unbelievably relaxing. Sitting in a  kawa hot bath with a cold drink to soothe your tired muscles is undoubtedly the best way to end your action-packed Boracay day trip.

Hi, my name is Nic I went on your tour from Boracay to Antique on 8 May with two friends (Ruby and Allena). I just wanted to say thanks for organising a great tour! We all had a great time and I will definitely recommend it to my friends who visit the Philippines. Thanks

My friends and I spent nearly 2 weeks in Boracay over the x-mas period. We met the crew from Tribal on a pub crawl and decided to keep going back. The bar itself is laid back with cheap drinks and amazing staff! After a few nights we were informed of the “Tribal Adventure” that they provide. At the end of our trip it was by far the highlight! A fun filled day on the main land, up into the mountains trekking through the jungle along with other fun activities (white water kayaking, waterfall climbing and cliff jumping into lagoons). It is worth every cent you put into it and you’d be mad not to give it a go!PS: All you can eat and drink. Food was delicious and beer is….beer. Amazing!
