Across the Seven Seas

May 22, 2019

Ahoy mates! The days of the vacation season are already numbered. People often relish this season as gallivanting into new places and hoarding new experiences to snowcapped regions, to white sand beaches and turquoise waters, or to calm retreats outside the urban jungle. It is the time of the year when we wrestle with the flickering moments of leisure as we are pushed over the edge of finding time for ourselves and for our loved ones or, perhaps, of realizing all our pending #SummerGoals. As for Kagay-anons and people from nearby areas, fret not! The #SummerGoals can be within reach with Seven Seas Waterpark and Resort, sans the lickpenny airfares and the downsides of long hours of travelling. Seven Seas Waterpark and Resort is one of North Mindanao’s premiere tourist destination with its world-class amenities and attractions, which all members of the family will certainly enjoy.
Last May 11, the CDO Bloggers Network held our second quarter general membership meeting at this summer haven worthy on your bucketlists. We were surely in for a treat as the resort is filled with various wallowing facilities, heart-stopping slides, and food stalls selling inviting fares, all while basking in the gleaming sun. Before frolicking with the inner child in all of us, we were served with a delectable lunch similar to the resort’s menu for special occasions which can be held in their congenial function halls.

We were also able to meet the president and chief executive officer of UC-1 Corporation, Engr. Elpidio M. Paras, as he explicates the concept behind the pirate-themed resort from the colonial period and how topnotch the equipment they are using to construct the details as well as the entirety of the resort. He also added that they are also gradually gearing towards sustainable tourism where they are employing state-of-the-art filtration system to recycle the immense volume of used water for their garden plants. A comparable water processing system is also utilized to treat five million liters of water they use daily for the pools, which makes it utterly safe for its designated usage. They have also installed solar panels which have been reducing their electricity consumption for up to 30%.

The group then began the site tour for us to be acquainted with the different safety policies of the resort and to get the feel of the what the whole resort has to offer. Indeed, strolling around the resort is comparable to sailing across the seven seas. You get to experience different things as it caters to all age groups (and to all tolerance levels to adrenaline-pumping activities :D). If you are up for laidback sceneries and just want to dip into the water, then swim your hearts out at Buccaneer Bay, one of the largest dual wave pools in the country, and float like a pro at Mighty Maui River, the longest lazy river in the Philippines at a whopping 400 m. On the other hand, if you have some guts for some adrenaline-pumping activities, attractions include Cyclone, Cutlass, Pira-chute, Pacific Racer, Cannonball Run, Plank Drop, Riptide Reef, and Escape Tunnel. As for kids, Pirate Caraibes, an aqua playhouse, and Captain Kidd’s Hideout, an aqua slidehouse, are safe options.

A first aid team is on guard for emergency purposes. The slides have no age restrictions, however, a weight limit of 40kg to 113kg does apply. Swimwears made of non-cotton materials are highly encouraged to avoid getting stuck on the slides.

So, hurry up mates! Frolic with the last days of the vacation season across Seven Seas Waterpark and Resort. It is located at Zone 1, Barra, Opol, Misamis Oriental.
