Samal Island Maxima Aquafun and Eagle View Canopy Walk

Maxima Aqua Fun "Home of the Abyss" The Giant Water Slide.
The Gateway to Hagimit Falls
At MAXIMA Aqua Fun, you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and fishing. Also an ideal jump off site for island hopping. Nearby is the San Jose Wall & Cave, a perfect spot to go diving, ideal for beginners and professional divers. You may also want to take a refreshing freshwater dip on one of Samal’s hidden treasure by taking a leisurely hike to haguimit falls, a stone’s throw away from the beach house.

An ideal place for group or family camping.

How To Get There
From your Hotel or from Davao City ride a PUJ with signboard R.Magsasay
Ramon Magsasay Park where passengers will be riding the Island City Express Busn and transported by a RORO going to Babak Wharf in Samal.
Bus with Penaplata signboard (much better is there's a Kaputian bus available).
Non-aircon fare is Php40.00
Airconditioned Fare is Php50.00
About 10-15minute ride going to Samal Island.
A manifest will be pass for head count or passenger's information.
Once docked at Samal Port (Babak Wharf) a 30-minute bus ride until you reach Davao Central Warehouse.
There a lot of Habal-Habal (a hired motorcycle which carries less than eight persons including the driver), that you can rent going to Maxima, as for us we choose the bigger one, with wide seat.
Habal-Habal going to Maxima fare is Php25each.
A ten minute ride going to Maxima.

Free use of tables and changes. I think cottages also are free.
Reasonable price of food in the canteen, though they didn't sell ice.
Alot of grilling stations also.
I advise that you put on a mosquito repellant lotion since they are so many mosquitos in the resort.
Crew are always there to help you most specially in the Giant Slide.
