Nestling in the warm waters of the South China Seas and Pacific Ocean, it's little wonder that the Philippines is a mecca for the water sports enthusiast, especially as the archipelago is made up of so many beautiful islands! Let us create a bespoke sporting holiday where you can enjoy a combination of activities.
Birdwatching in the Philippines
The Philippines is an attractive destination for the keen birding enthusiast, with more than 600 species of resident and migratory birds. Of these, almost a third are endemic, and a good number belong to the list of threatened species, like the Chinese Egret and Asian Dowitcher. We run private Birding Tours of various durations with local birding guides. Read more on our Birdwatching page...

Cycling Tours in the Philippines
The Philippines is one of the best cycling destinations in Southeast Asia. Here you will see great places as well as experiencing the local culture as you travel around the islands. Philippine Trails bike tours are fully supported, and tours are normally available to run at any time of the year with a minimum of 2 riders. Cycling Tours Page.
And we shouldn't forget the paradise that lies beneath the waves. Amidst the coral reefs, a vast amount of diverse marine life exists. No wonder the Philippines is a magnet for scuba divers who like to explore the depths. Almost all beach resorts have dive centres, and we can arrange holidays with diver training for those that wish to take up the sport.
We work with a number of small cruise ships, and dive boats of all sizes that offer Liveaboard trips to areas like Tubbataha reef, El Nido, the Calamian islands, and the Visayas. See more on our Diving Page.
If you're into game fishing, head to Siargao Island - the country's main destination for the sport. (Siargao is also famous for surfing.)
All year round, catches include sailfish, jack and giant trivially, yellow fin tuna, skipjack tuna, dorado, and for the lucky ones, marlin.
March to May is best for big-game fishing - and is the season for sailfish, for which Siargao Island is famous. Wahoo (tangigue) and yellow fin tuna are also caught during this time. Trolling for dorado (also known as dolphin fish and mahi- mahi) is possible between August and November.
For groups, who wish to fish from a private island, we can accommodate you at Dipudo Island. This is a private island, perfect for small groups of up to 16 persons, which has three modern well-equipped New Zealand built fishing boats that are available for guests to hire.
Stay on Ticao Island and you can have your own horse to care for during your stay. Pony-Trek around the island, accompanied by a guide.
Enjoy a short Trek by horse at Lake Taal, Tagaytay - part of our Tagaytay, and Taal Volcano tours.
Visit Dumaguete, Negros, and spend your time riding either around your resort, the beach, or neighboring hills. Please enquire if this is of interest to you...
Kayaking is popular almost everywhere, but particularly in Palawan, and is the perfect way to explore quiet bays and lagoons.
The more adventurous will try parasailing or kiteboarding.
Those looking to experience the thrills of Whitewater Rafting, should head up to the north of Luzon, to the Cagayan Valley, or to Cagayan De Oro, Mindanao.
Surfers need go no further than La Union, north west of Manila, facing the South China Sea, where we will accommodate you in a stylish beach-side resort with daily surfing lessons available, or alternatively Baler, a few hours journey to the east of Manila, facing the Pacific Ocean.
Surfing is also a serious activity on Siargao Island, in the south of the Philippines, where you can also take advantage of the Pacific waves. Siargao is a good place to combine Game Fishing with Surfing!
