Summertime at Ulot River, Paranas, Samar

The Ulot River Torpedo Boat Adventure experience at Paranas, Samar – the longest river in the entire Samar island crossing all 3 provinces, Samar, Eastern Samar and Northern Samar.

The Torpedo Boat Adventure route, however, only traverses 11.5 kilometers of this lengthy river (23 kms back and forth) and takes about an hour downstream, and over an hour upstream back to the jump-off point.

The jump-off point is located near the HQ of the Samar Island Natural Park (SINP) in Paranas, Samar along the Buray-Borongan highway.

Getting there: It’s about 1.5 hours drive from Tacloban City to the jump off point. From Tacloban City, head on to Catbalogan, Samar via the Maharlika Highway. Upon reaching the Buray junction (this is before Catbalogan), turn right headed for Borongan. SINP HQ is 16 kilometers from the Buray junction.

  1. wow that was so nice ..can feel the heat of summer in your photo and it really anticipates me to take a plunge on the river..great shot by the way..

    nice post..

  2. wow… until now i cannot get the panning technique. it’s so difficult. do u have a tip for me?

    • There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to panning. You just have to get the hang of it, hence it basically means doing a lot of practice. The key is setting your camera to a slow shutter speed setting and shooting/following your subject steadily as you shoot on as close a speed as the subject is moving. A tripod or monopod can surely help eliminate unwanted vertical movements. It’s a trial and error thing. 😉

  3. thank u for the tips… 😀 im gonna watch more sports events for practice. though i tried it in my front yard with my cousins. i just couldnt get it right. but i wont give up. 😀

  4. i could feel the rush! and wow traversing the longest river in an island? !
