4 Months in the Philippines – Part 6: Adventure

4 Months in the Philippines – Part 6: Adventure

Along with swimming with whale sharks and canyoneering at Kawasan Falls, there are many other adventures my coworkers and I enjoyed while in Cebu. Some coworkers parasailed, while others took mermaid swimming lessons. In this post, I’ll be sharing my experience zip lining as well as sky biking.

Silot Bay

Located about an hour’s drive north of Cebu City is Papa Kit’s Marina. There are many fun activities here, from fishing and horseback riding, to a ropes course and wakeboarding. The best attraction however, is the zip lining. The zip line is 800 meters long, and goes over a bay to a small island. You then climb a tower on the island and zip line back. It’s very affordable, at just 200-400 pesos, depending on whether you want to sit or go headfirst.

I elected to go for the “Superman” zip line, as I had never gone zip lining before, and wanted the full experience.

After getting strapped in, I was given a push, and was suddenly heading out to Chattis Island.

Crossing paths

The whole experience was amazing, and it’s definitely one I’ll be anxious to try elsewhere in the future.

Below is video of my return zip line back to the mainland.

About a 2 hour drive into the mountains north of Cebu sits Danasan Eco Adventure Park. Similar to Papa Kit’s, it’s full of outdoors activities such as rappelling through waterfalls and spelunking, ATVs, etc.

The drive to the park takes you through the mountains, and the views were stunning.

The drive was quite bumpy, and sadly I wasn’t feeling too well at the end of it. So the only activity I felt well enough to do was the Sky Bike.

The Sky Bike is basically a high wire act, as you’re riding a bike balanced on a wire. The wheels are grooved to help keep you on the wire. It’s a lot of fun, and very safe thanks to the harness, but I was definitely a bit nervous.

As usual, I strapped on the GoPro and started biking. I can’t remember the last time I was on a normal bike, let alone one balanced on a wire far above the ground.

Next post, I’ll be sharing photos from one of the most beautiful islands I’ve ever seen in all my travels, Bantayan.
