Reviewed 28 June 2014

Had so much fun doing cliff diving!! but i think p2000 for the trip to ariel's point is a bit too much. there are other activities provided there but it depends on the waves as well. while i was there, we werent allowed to kayak as the waves were really strong but we were allowed to snorkel. however, nothing could be seen due to the high current. we were allowed to cliff dive though which was fantastic!! it was a great experience!!

“Must do in Boracay”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We book the tour with ariel house 1 day before.
It was a fun trip to ariel point. It was quite rough the journey to go and back from ariel point because it was very windy.
I tried jumping at 3m & 5 m only, which was really fun!

Unlimited beer/coke/mineral waters for the whole trip.
We liked the fried rice vermicelli they served for lunch.

Advise:Book with ariel house in advance to avoid disaappointment

“Stay awhile.”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

When you book this you have two options. Go here for the day. Lounge,drink,eat, dive, observe, maybe snorkel. Or you can do a tour around the entire island and visit a few places. I did the latter, and regretted it. You spend all your time going from place to place and only 20 minutes or so at each location. Ariel's Point is a great place to spend a day. There was a small fee once you get there that is not included in the tour price.

“Adrenalin rush!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Ariel's point is a monopoly attraction, therefore if you have not made any advance booking you need to try your luck on that day itself at Ariel's House at Station 1. The price is 2000 peso per person and they will have a short briefing of dos and don'ts at around 11:15am. The boat to Ariel's Point will leave at 11:30am and will only be back at 4pm. If anyone wants to come back earlier, this can be arrange at additional charges.

There will be 2 boats leaving, depending on the colour of the tag they have given as ticket, which boat you will be riding. The boats are stopped a distance from the beach therefore everyone will get wet having to waddle through the water to get to the boat. Please be reminded to keep your belongings in water proof bag or to a minimum. You won't need much accept for your camera perhaps as you would be wet most of the time. A towel is only required when you need to wrap yourself up on the way back. The boat ride took almost 45 minutes and drinks are served- coke and San Miguel.

Once reach the cliff, it was around 12:30pm. We need to dip into the water again to get on the island.It started to rain when we arrive but all things put under the little huts still got wet as water drips through, therefore again water proof bag is important.The cliff starts from 3m, 5m,8m and 15m. Most people only jump from 3m, a handful will try 5m and only a few will have the guts to jump from 8m and 15m. Once jump into the water, salt water will rush into both your nose and throat causing a burning sensation. Around 2 pm, they will stop us for lunch.

After lunch we started snorkeling and kayaking. But beware as there are small jellyfish (that's what the local said) that keeps stinging while snorkeling. Kayaking you will need to wait for your turn as they only have limited.Before 4 pm they will start asking people to get back to the boat to go back to the shore. Beers will not be serve on the way back, only coke or rum&coke. On the way back as we are going against the currents, there will be occasional splash of water so we will still be wet.

“great for high diving and snorkeling”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My family enjoyed the beach for snorkeling and high diving. I regretted not to bring food as I saw a group of tourist who brought their fresh fish and fruits, prepared by the workers at the beach. Oh well, I know better next time. :)
