There are several kinds of ways on how you can conquer and enjoy the waters of Caliraya Lake, you can do boating, kayaking, boat paddle, jetski, kite boarding and wind surfing. For our case, we tried the boat pasyal here in Caliraya Mountain Lake Resort, it’s a tour around Caliraya Lake riding this motorized tour boat, the big boat can accommodate up to 15 people. We went around the lake for 30 minutes and here I got another adrenaline pumping moment when we return to the docking bay.

as usual, naiwan na naman ako haha
I chase the guys and told them to wait for me. I’m lucky that there’s one life vest left for me.
all a board ??
While we ride the boat, the boatman shares a lot of trivia and info about the lake, he even pin points to us the private residences located in an island and also at the far reaches of the lake.
The wind is strong here and the lake is very busy.
small islands can be spotted after we reached the middle part of the lake.
Here’s the islet, a small island in Caliraya Lake.
Accdg to some info, this lake has deep level of the height of Sierra Madre mountain.
now..that’s! too deep.
Here we spotted the private residences in Caliraya Lake.
Its like a mansion on the side of the cliff and island. The home owners got their own boat, jetski and even kayak. We also spotted a nice lanai that faces the lake side. OH man… we start to imagine that we are staying here for an overnight haahaha.
The adrenaline rush started when we went back to the dock. The wind starts to blow and the sky turns dark. Few minutes before we dock, it rained so hard. We also experienced some splashes of water from the lake, because we’re hitting the opposite side of the wave of the lake. It’s a fun and cold adventure here in Caliraya Lake.
