New option: Island hopping light
If you have seen (like us) Boracay Island 20 or more years ago and you see it now, you will notice, how dramatically the environnement has been harmed. There's a video online, where you see some guy selling a tour, stepping with his shoes on the corals, feeding the fish, so the guests have an attraction. There's a trafficjam like in New York at every rushhour, polluting this little island's air. And so many more things. Lots of areas are completely trashed out. And and and. Pollution of air, of water, of land and of different kinds of noise. Boracay still is a very beautiful place. But it really takes a lot of energy and activities, to keep it attractive so it can still be called "one of the best beaches in the world", even in 20 years from today. That is, when Boracay's children will be grown ups and want a job in a healthy environnement. No healthy environnement, no tourists, - no jobs. Simple as that.
If you want to do something, that is ecological correct, that does not harm the evironnement and is lots of fun on top of it, island hopping by sailboat is the way to go. Boracay's Governement already does a lot to keep Boracay a clean island. They have an eye on littering or smoking on the beach and they put up signs "Don't litter". But it's not enough. Yet, if every visitor adds his little part, it might get near somewhere, being useful for Boracay Island.
But if you go sailing with us, you don't have to worry about all that. We do not allow cans on board, in order not to produce garbage. The energy that drives our boat, is the wind. The only noise you might hear, is the sound of the wind in our sails. We think, island hopping the way we do, is ecologically correct.
This way to preserve Boracay Island's nature, is fully supported by the MASBOI and its President Mr. Manni Casidsid.
How did we get the idea?
One day, our sailboat, the "Misty Morning" had just been launched, we took an evening stroll near station one. Station one? Right, the place you run (if you want or not) into many streetvendors trying to sell either a hat, sunglasses, souvenirs, massages and - now it comes: "Allannaaping". Being in Boracay for a short term, this can be quite nervewrecking. If you stay for a while, with the time you learn to ignore it. "Buy Sunglasses mom" or "buy a hat sir", is understadable. But "Allannaaping"? We stopped one evening to ask a guy, what the "Allanaapping" he was offering, really meant. He showed us a little postcard with all kinds of Boracay activities. And under one picture, the one he kept pointing at, it said: "Island hopping"
We pointed on it and he was real glad, we had finally found out, what he thought was English and meant: Alllannaaping. We thought, "Allannaaaping" was a wonderful idea, so we took it into our sailing programm. And you can bet; people love Allanaaping with us. ((:- Boracay Island hopping by sailboat: The way to go.

For those, who are interested to see more of the great places around Boracay and those, who want to say in the end, that they have seen more than a hotel, or a budget hotel and strip of beach, island hopping with luch by motorboat, as a group or exclusive, is the way to go.
Of course you will meet all kinds of people from many different country's. And that's one of the greater things on this kind of tour. If you want, you will enjoy your lunch with people you never met before and make friends. The very friendly atmosphere during our island hopping trips makes meeting other people easy. Not seldom it happens, that folks who met on one of our Boracay island hopping tours, would end up in a Boracay Restaurant or enjoy the nightlive in the evening and become friends and meet for so many other things to do on the island.
Us, the creators of “Boracay-activities.ph” have been to the island back in 1995. Boracay had its very own charm then. It was a great relaxed place, basically being visited by so called “travellers”. Not much to do there, but to hang out on the beach, maybe rent a small outrigger sail boat and visit a bar in the night. Stone houses? Not that we can think of. Huts on the beach with one or two beds in it. Hotels or fancy restaurants in Boracay did not exist. That was it. Shingley wasn't born yet. One day, probably around 1997, at the entrance of the island we saw a sign: “Welcome to Boracay tourist resort”. That – was an indicator of the island's new destination.
In later years, pollution was a word in most every visitors mouth. Unclean water and suige was lead by many hotels, strait into the ocean. Plastic bottles on the beach, stinking tricycles clogged the tiny roads. With every heavy rain, the streets were completely folded. And all the poison the waters would carry, flooded the small place. As a result, lots of sickness, food poisoning and dinghy fever. In exactly that time, everyone taking the boat to Boracay, was charged an “environment fee”.
All would have probably carried on the way it did, causing for sure, the island's early end, had not the President of the Philippines, President Mr. Duterte - set an end to it all. It was him, who closed the entire place for a general clean up. Lots of illegal places were closed, water pipes renewed, streets widened, lots-of tricycles run on electric power now. The Governement of the Philippines invested quite a bit of money, to save one of the words most famous islands. took And once more, Boracays looks are not at all comparable to the island we hang out on, back in the eighty's. Yet - it now feeds a lot of family's with kids. For sure, one generation ahead, had it gone on like it did, it would not have fed anybody.
In the time of closure of course, lots of people and businesses did suffer. On a place like Boracay Island, most shops and businesses are based on tourism. But even in places near Boracay, like Caticlan, where a whole fleet of cargo boats, which would normally supply the island with all needs, came to a standstill. Almost no planes landed on the airport anymore and left people unemployed. Sailors, who rented their sail boats had to stay at home. But all of that, was yesterday. Island hopping works again, the sailors sail and the shops are back in business. And everyone knows, had it not been for this major cut, the whole place would have collapsed within the shortest time. Now, island hopping Boracay, is a new, joyfull experience.
Carabao Island is still very calm and heavy tourism has not taken place there yet. It has lots of wild beaches and fairly untouched nature to offer. One of the reasons is, that the beaches are not all of fine white sand, like the onesin Boracay. Still the island maintained its very original charm and is well worth a trip.
Of course, also the kind of activities you can do in Boracay have changed since 1985, when we first landed there. There are lots of water sport activities like Jet Ski riding, a banana boat, you can fly around the island by helicopter, there is a golf course as well as horseback riding and much more to explore and have a wonderful time. Being asked, if we would have stayed Boracay longer, back in the eighty's, had it been the way it is now? The clear answer is no. But – back in time we were young travellers, exploring the world. Now, we are old folks and probably have a strong tendency to stay in one of the fancier hotels in Boracay. Times change; people do too.
