Reviving Sailing Traditions in Northern Palawan

Gener, whose father and grandfather were both boat sailors, is the originator of the Paraw project and our boat captain. He is teaching local youth sailing and navigational techniques. “A return to sailing makes sense – our marine environment is under threat and fuel prices are rising. Learning to sail again will help Palaweños escape dependence on gasoline and diesel while, at the same time, fostering a deeper understanding and respect for the sea.”

Here’s our much-awaited sailing schedule for the next few months. For a full description of each expedition, and for bookings, please visit the Tao Philippines website.

The paraw expedition combines stretches of pure sailing with time for exploring the islands, reefs, and villages along the way. During times of less wind we motor-sail between our island destinations. Navigating the adventure is our crew of barefoot sailors, who were among the traditional craftsmen that built the Paraw. Dive off the outriggers to snorkel around coral reefs and WWII shipwrecks; clamber through caves; stroll along abandoned beaches; socialize with locals and tune-in to the tranquil pace of island life. Each meal is prepared by our amazing cooks with freshly caught seafood and local organic produce.
