In the Philippines, outrigger canoes (called bangka) are often fitted with powerful gasoline or diesel propeller engines to boost output. These Canoes are usually made of wood (In the west, they use fiberglass, which is very expensive!). Bangka's or Outrigger canoes features one or more lateral support floats (usually bamboo) known as outriggers, which are fastened to one or both sides of the main hull. In Boracay, these Bangka's are large and have roofs so that up to 30 persons can ride one. It is the main mode of transport from the Caticlan Ferry Jetty to Cagban Ferry Jetty at Boracay island.

A Single trip can cost 70 pesos per person and you can also rent them for half day and whole day sailing (also diving) and they cost 3,500 pesos half day and 6,000 pesos whole day. Avaialble everywhere in Boracay.
