The weather in the Philippines is divided into two seasons. During the summer months, June to October, the Southwest monsoon, called Habigat, brings generally wet and overcast weather with a few typhoons to the Philippines. The winter months, November to mid-April, is the Northeast monsoon called Amihan. This brings generally dry, consistent wind and blue skies to the Philippines and is the preferred season for kitesurfing. Air and sea temperature throughout the winter months is perfectly warm, there is certainly no need for a wetsuit. Enjoy butter flat water with offshore winds as well as left and right wave kickers.

Join us and find out why "It's more fun in the Philippines." With a combination of sea, sailing, kitesurfing and exploring this cruise through the Philippines are full of adventure. The four day cruise will visit Seco Island or Libagao Island, the longer cruise options make it possible to visit other places such as Palawan, Cuyo or several destinations in one trip. The cruise will provide the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. All meals are prepared fresh and packed with the nutrients you need to stay active. Go snorkelling or diving to explore the marine life, take a stand up paddle board, go for a swim or chill out on deck, there is something on board for everyone!
The Yacht (Siriya) has been equipped with a state of the art indoor and outdoor sound system that customers can plug their iPod devices directly into to provide the soundtrack to your kitesafari. An equally impressive lighting system will create the mood for every occasion. On our onboard videos on our 24 inch widescreen TV and media center, customers can review the day’s photographs and videos, or simply kickback and view the latest movie or TV Show, or Len10/Hadlow production, from our extensive onboard selection.
You have to be an independent Kiteboarder, Level 3 or equivalent as the kite locations we go to are off-shore winds, so you must be able to go upwind reliably. But in case the wind goes light, or you have an issue with your kite, we have of course rescue dingy to bring you back to shore. As a result of the offshore wind, there is butter flat water as well as spots with right and left side wave kickers. We visit spots with much stronger and reliable wind than Boracay.

Will I get Seasick? Generally, no. People don’t get seasick while on Siriya. When sailing a catamaran roles very little compared to normal sail boats or ferry. When we anchor, we are in an area sheltered from waves, so Siriya moves even less. Having said this, if you know you are prone to seasickness, start taking tablets one day before starting your kite safari.
No wind days? Occasionally during the North East monsoon season, (November to mid-April) there can be no wind days. Don’t worry, we still have plenty of toys to play with onboard out luxury catamaran, SUP boards, Snorkeling, Hookah diving (for PADI certified guests) and Kite-slinging!
I am not a Kitesurfer, can I still come? Yes, you’ll still have an amazing time. Explore the islands, chill on the boat, go swimming, snorkeling or paddling. There is always something to do.

The 44 foot ‘Siriya’ is a gorgeous charter specification catamaran made in 2001 by Dean Catamarans in South Africa. She has proven her utmost seaworthiness having already circumnavigated the globe. Siriya is fully equipped as a live-aboard for up to 8 kitesurfers and 2 crew. With 4 double cabins, 4 bathrooms, a large central saloon, equally large cockpit and a massive front deck, she is the perfect yacht for running kitesurfing tours around the Philippine seas. Siriya’s 4 double cabins and 4 bathrooms allow you to enjoy your kite safaris in maximum comfort and privacy. Cabins are comfortable, spacious have good air flow and a great view. Bed linen and towels are provided. There are fans above each of the double beds and plenty of storage space. Sleeping arrangements are based on 2 people sharing a room in a double bed or bunk bed. However there are plenty of other sleeping options on the boat, such as the couch in the saloon, cockpit benches, or for those who enjoy a stargazing, we have beanbags, air mattresses and nets on the front of the yacht.
Shared Double Cabin

Boat & Facilities The catamaran was great. Cabin was the perfect size, with enough space for 2 people, airconditioning and a fan. Kareem (the skipper) has had the main cabin decked out with a large flat screen TV with video games and some awesome kitesurfing videos. Loud speakers outside set the mood as everyone was waking up and as everyone was getting back on board. There is a kitchen and another main bathroom used by everyone. Cabin Crew Kareem, Mike and Eddie were 50% of the awesomeness of our trip. The crew were very friendly and extremely helpful. They go out of their way to accommodate, even beyond filipino hospitality. Kareem had a drone flying around, capturing some cool footage which made its way into our brilliant trip video. The crew showed great experience during the sailing segments, they definitely knew what they were doing and knew the entire area for what seemed like for decades. Thank you Eddie for taking care of everyone and the constant ferrying back and forth from the beach! Food Breakfast probably best meal of the day. Portions are ok but might fall short satisfying the big eaters. Very tasty and each meal gets better and better. They can cater to food allergies and intolerances. Special thanks to Mike for the incredible meals he prepared. Each meal blew our minds. There was a lot of variety from different cuisines Kite Spots We visited a total of 3 spots. Libagao (the first) was not that great with a lot of gusts. We did a downwinder from there to the neighbouring Nagubat Island, which was extremely choppy though the destination was very rewarding. Flat sand bar so option of both onshore and offshore. The third and final spot gets the cake, best spot we've ever been to. Small sand bar in the middle of nowhere, probably 1km by 500m. You can kite circles around the island to get all kinds of wind configurations. Added bonus seeing marine life! Kiting into the sunset was something out of a movie. Overall great wind (we went end of December) averaging 22-27 knots most of the time, with an odd day out with 12-17 knots. Overall We would do this again! We met some great people and made some new friends! Kareem runs this as his passion project so the whole experience was very warm and custom tailored to us. If you’ve ever considered kiting in the Philippines, don’t bother with anything else other than this.
Another super trip from a return customer. I consider there to be 5 different kite spots on this trip. At Libagao there is the front area with offshore winds and on the west side is a sheltered lagoon with onshore winds. The 3rd spot is the downwinder to Nagubat island, the 4th spot is the upwind lagoon of Nagubat, and the 5th spot is my favourite which is the sandbar at Nagubat where the wind blows directly offshore. All spots are safe and not rocky, the water is crystal clear. The accommodation on the boat is excellent and I slept well each night. There are cabins to sleep in or the option of sleeping on deck under the stars if you wish. The host Kareem has been coming to these spots for years and knows the right conditions. Often when there is no wind in Boracay, there will be >20 knots at Libagao and Nagubat. Kareem has an excellent crew with the experienced sailor Eddie, and Mike who will provide excellent tasty and healthy meals to ensure you have enough energy to kite all day. Eddie will look after you if you need any rescues by dinghy and will assist with kite setup on the beach. For 2 years in a row when there was no wind in Boracay I had days with over 20 knots on this trip. Highly recommended, a genuine 5 star experience.
