Don’t miss this video if you really want to enjoy the real feel of rowing.
As I said earlier Rowing to Pagsanjan waterfalls at Laguna bay is much more fun than standing under it.
Just to give you a background, it was a rainy, cloudy day with sudden burst of showers every now & then. Not at all a good day for camera. But whenever it was possible, I took it out. You can see droplets on camera lens though I kept wiping it. Not a good habit.
Our canoe was attached to a motorized canoe which already had some more canoes & so our boat train ‘chugged’ forward. After 4 Kms, rapids started and we could not go further smoothly. So all canoes were unhitched and the pedaling started. There were at least 10 rapids in last 2 Kms.
On the way, locals come in boat (floating shops) & try to sell some snacks. We also saw a tax collector on a floating platform who dutifully kept record of boats entering the arena and collecting taxes, since this area is protected by the environment department.

Here is a compiled version of video. The length is 6:25 minutes (the original is more than 20 minutes), but you can relax & enjoy. It’s a weekend ! 😀
