calle Z staff’s summer break: torpedo boat adventure at Ulot River
The staff of calle Z Cafe goes on its Annual Summer Outing, April 22, 2011 at the Ulot River Torpedo Boat Adventure at Ulot Watershed, Samar Island Natural Park (SINP) in Paranas, Samar.
calle Z Cafe closes operation only 6 days in a year: Good Friday, June 30, Dec 24 & 25; and Dec 31 & Jan 01. Good Friday is usually when the staff goes on a summer respite.
The Ulot River Torpedo Boat Adventure is about an hour’s motorized banca ride (no outriggers) downstream at Ulot River – Samar’s longest river – and back upstream (1.5 hours) navigating portions with river rapids. Traversed distance is about 23 kilometers, roundtrip.
The river boat adventure is located near Samar Island Natural Park HQ at Paranas, Samar. It’s almost a 2-hour drive from Tacloban City.
GETTING THERE: From Tacloban City, take Maharlika Highway headed towards Catbalogan, Samar. At the Buray junction (that’s before Catbalogan), turn right. The jump off point is 16 kms from the Buray junction.
