WATER ADVENTURE | MAXIMA AQUA FUN RESORT
I got bored of a regular type of beach. I wanted something that offers adventure and fun …
That was All Souls day and we were in Davao for a series of training engagements. Of course, nobody would like to attend a seminar during 1st and 2nd of November. So were free, but instead of getting bored in the hotel we thought of trying a place we haven’t visited before. We thought of Samal Island. And when we asked the Front Office Staff of the hotel about Samal Island they immediately mentioned, Maxima!

MAXIMA AQUA FUN FACILITIES
Maxima Aqua Fun has several facilities which any visitor can enjoy.
Two Giant Tarpaulin Water Slide. You can shout your lungs out while sliding to any of their giant tarpaulin water slides.
We’ve tried their 4o meters giant slide. A “scream all you can” treat for the adventurous buddies. Don’t worry, they have lifeguards waiting for you in the water at the end of the slide. The moment I got into the water which is said to be at least 100 meters deep in a super flash of 6 seconds I was reminded of the feeling when we almost got drowned from our last year’s white water rafting adventure (also in Davao). But the experience was amazing.
The water blob looked like a giant balloon. At Maxima I enjoyed seeing one person lying on end and another jumps on the opposite side. The person lying would then be pushed up in the air and into the water.
Diving Board, Snorkeling, and Diving
Maxima also offers underwater dive experience both for beginners and professionals. Samal Island is a coral garden that’s why it is perfect for diving and snorkeling.
Eagle View Canopy Walk
We were not able to experience their Eagle View Canopy walk as it was closed during our visit.
There were no shops nearby, so bring all the stuff you need as you would go to a picnic – food, utensils, places, drinks, water, cups, etc. They have a small canteen offering food and drinks. It’s just sad to note however that the staff they have in their canteen needs so much training on customer service …. (I am sorry Maxima..) But the guard whom we left our personal belongings was super nice .
