With all the great reviews my family and I were really looking forward to it, was so disappointed that it turned into a booze fest. Passengers and crew alike having rum skulling competitions on board, lucky no one fell overboard, wouldn't want to rely on them to save me!

If you want to make the most out of your Boracay trip with friends, you should definitely go to Ariel's Point. We went to Ariel's house early so we got to ride the brown wooden boat with chairs on top and we got to choose where to be seated. The best seat in the island is where the 15m board is situated. You can see a breathtaking view and you can also get to talk with the brave souls who would jump in the 15m board.

For Php 2000, I got to drink cocktails, eat good food, snorkel, ride the kayak and go cliff diving. What's great with the cliff diving in Ariel's Point is that even if you don't know how to swim, you can try it. There would be lifeguards waiting on the water to pick you up. Also, everyone has the instinct to resurface in the water after plunging. Why do I know that? My friend who does not know how to swim (never even took swimming lessons) was able to jump from all the cliff diving points. Yes, even the 15m one. We really made the most of the money.

Another awesome thing in Ariel's Point is that it is not crowded. They control the number of people who goes to the island. Fortunately for us, on the way back to the main Boracay beach, we were able to make foreign friends and party with them in style atop the boat (2nd deck) while enjoying the sea breeze. Even though my body became sore from all that cliff diving, I would definitely go back to Ariel's Point.

If you like adventurous water activities, you should try Ariel's point.
There are various heights of diving platforms to dive, it's a whole new different experience to dive from a cliff into the Sea rather than into the pool. Besides diving, you can also paddle in a native canoe or snorkeling. The scenery is nice too.
That was my first diving experience since I don't know how to swim. I had a lot of fun.
However, have to be careful during the activities, especially diving, make sure that there are lifeguards around when you leap, just in case.

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!!

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
