Crazy Jumps at Caob Lagoon SiargaoSaturday, August 17, 2013
“Those who don't jump will never fly.”
― Leena Ahmad AlmashatYaek Lom Crater Lake in Ban Lung. Daring to jump a 40 foot cliff in Camotes Island, Cebu. And how can I forget the scariest jump of all?
The Great Plunge of quitting my job, traveling to exotic destinations and starting a career in vagabonding.
To add to the list, I recently went on one of the most fun "jump tour" I've ever been- at Caob Lagoon, Siargao with the Turtle Surf Camp crew. We had been staying at the surf camp for a week and we enjoyed how the owners, Kitya and Enrique, organize trips and tours around the island for all of the guests or non-guests who want to participate. August is off season for surfing which meant waves were smaller than usual. So we welcomed the change in scenery and activity.
Guys, being guys, already started taking their shirts off as soon as we docked. And in minutes, they were already launching themselves as cannonballs into the water. There was no limit to the variety of ways they threw themselves into the lagoon.
There was simply no room for grown ups on this trip!
There was definitely no shortage of things to do in our little corner of the lagoon! You can't imagine how many jumps we did or how many different ways you can hurl yourself into the water. I'm pretty sure we could discover even more ways if only we spend more than a day there.
By sundown, we all had to get back on the boat, totally spent but surprisingly still feeling high from adrenaline.

How to Make This Trip Happen:
- There are a couple of ways to get here: by boat from General Luna or on motorbike or car to Del Carmen and then a short pump boat ride. We did the latter as it's the faster way.

If you want your trip to the Caob Lagoon to be hassle free, I highly recommend you join their tour. We did and made bunch of friends in the process.
