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.
