What you'll do

6:00AM Pick up at the Magellan's Cross monument. We're starting bright and early to catch the calm morning tides. Our destination is the picturesque Cebu Yacht Club in Lapu-Lapu City, a 30-minute drive from Cebu City. On arrival, you'll register and sign waivers. Next, you'll receive a Dragonboat Basics Orientation and then do warm-up with the team. After, you'll be assigned to boats, given paddles and safety personal flotation devices (vests). And then it's on to the boat you go with seasoned crew and other Airbnb guests. On the boat, you'll receive Water Safety Basics training and then begin to apply your Dragonboat Basics. You'll be led through the basic dragonboat commands and drills on the beautiful coastal waters by the Boardwalk. For the finale, you'll set up for a thrilling 250m mock race with the other boat. After the race, we'll head on back to the docking area, where we'll celebrate your win (or the other boat's win) with a team picture, awarding, and a round of refreshments and filling food. 1:00PM We'll head back to the city just after noon time and should arrive at Magellan's Cross by 1PM, weekend traffic permitting

Hi! I'm a Cebu software engineer and a paddler for the Cebu Poseidon Dragons. The team has paddled since 2015 and we've competed in local and regional races. We've won awards (recently championing in the 2019 BakuNaga Dragonboat Fiesta Open Category). I'm hosting the activity and the rest of the awesome team will be crewing the boats. Check us out on fb.com/poseidonpaddlers and share this unique experience with us.

What's included

Water will be available throughout the activity.
Transport

Where you'll be

We will be paddling at the picturesque Cebu Yacht Club, a short drive from Cebu City. The exclusive club is home to Cebu's yachting population and is a short distance from the picturesque Marcel Fernan bridge that connects the historic town of Lapu-Lapu City to the main Cebu island. It is a perfect location for water sports and outdoor activities. Accessible via the highway.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should be comfortable getting on a boat, getting wet (submerged for a few seconds during water safety drill to learn water rescue basics), and being subjected to rocking motion by the waves.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Swimming skills are a plus but not required. Shower and changing area available. You must have no heart condition and must sign our waivers to join.
