Frequently asked questions

Where are the best paraw sailing tours in the Philippines?

Paraw sailing is a popular water activity in the Philippines, specifically in Boracay, Palawan, and Bohol. A paraw is a Cebuano word for a two-outrigger boat called a "katig," which has a big crab-claw sail and a smaller triangle-shaped foresail. Locals mainly use these boats for fishing and transporting products, but they have also been used for recreational sailing and now included in popular Philippines yacht and boat tours.

How many people are allowed in a paraw?

Most paraw sailing tours that can be booked on a travel booking website like Guide to the Philippines allow six to ten people at a time, plus a crew of two to four people. It will also depend on the Philippine guided tours that you will book. For example, if you’re going to book Philippine honeymoon packages, there are private paraw sunset sailing packages for two only like the Boracay sunset cruise tour.

How long does a paraw sailing tour last?

A paraw sailing activity is usually around 30 minutes to 1 hour long but can last up to 2 hours if you add up the safety briefing and travel time going to the activity area.

Are phones and cameras allowed during paraw sailing?

Yes, you can bring your phones and cameras, but they should be in a waterproof bag that you can easily grasp or secure to your body. You are also welcome to bring an action camera during your holiday in the Philippines.

Is there an age limit for joining paraw sailing tours?

Most paraw sailing tours allow children ages 3 and above with adult supervision to join the activity.

Is paraw sailing safe?

Just like parasailing tours, banana boat tours, jet ski tours, and other water activities, paraw sailing is a safe activity, provided that you have equipped the needed gear like a life vest and you follow the detailed safety briefing and introduction of the activity discussed before the tour.

What should I wear during paraw sailing?

You can wear anything you’re comfortable in, like a swimwear that is okay to get wet.
