Have you ever been on a crazy boat ride? I'm like riding boats and like going around to explore islands. Sometimes though the weather changes and the smooth boat ride turns into a water roller coaster. Here are some of the crazy boat rides I've been on -
Carbin Reef to Sagay
A few years ago we went island hopping during our trip to Boracay. From Station 2 we went towards Caticlan to reach Crystal Cove. We spent about two hours there and thought we should head to the lunch place that was part of the boat tour. The boat men said we'll pass towards the other end of Boracay, the area near Carabao Island. We said sure because we wanted to experience going around the whole island.
The wind suddenly changed when we were about to turn at the end of the island and huge waves suddenly blew in. It took the full concentration of the boat men to traverse through the waves. What was scary was the huge rocks we could have crashed in if not for skillful management of the boat. The ride calmed down after we finished the turn. The boat men explained that it would have been more dangerous to turn back and go the other way. We skipped the lunch place and just ate super late lunch on dry land.
It never crossed my mind that the crazy boat rides I've been on would sink even though I probably shaved off a few years off my life. I'm just grateful the boatmen always expertly brought us back to shore safely.
