Tribal Adventures White Water Action
Kayaking down the rivers of Panay, a mere hour and a half away from Boracay, you can really let your hair down and prepare to get wet!
Raging rapids or subtle trickles, whatever your ability Tribal Adventures will send you down the river with their experienced guides for the time of your life!
Hiking through rainforests and river eco- systems to get to the jump off point for the morning kayak, enjoy lunch at Kayak Inn and continue kayaking down the river, through mountain scenery and tropical jungles .... a truly rewarding experience!
You will be paddling and riding the white water class 2 to 3 rapids of the Tibiao River, the only Philippine river to have hosted an international kayaking competition.
You will also learn the art of preparing and feasting native-style before drinking the local brew "tuba" -- or beer or rum -- as you trade exhilaration for tranquility in a hot "kawa" tub back at Kayak Inn on the Tibiao River only 1-1/2 hours by boat and road from Boracay
Life vest and helmets are supplied. Two kayak guides are in each group and each kayaker has a personal porter/safety spotter who will follow you down the river.
The kayaks are sit on kayaks and, should you fall out, your safety guides are there to retrieve you. The rapids are a class 2&3 and you can stop at any time, if you feel you have reached your comfort level, and your safety guide will walk you and your gear back to the base camp.
