PopUp Slider (asking for your subscription) Updated

We have updated our PopUp slider (asking for your subscription) to not bother you when you are reading!
It will be shown only if you scroll to the bottom, and if you have clicked on No Thanks, for 1 week you will not see it.

But the most important was the update for our Subscribers to not see it EVER!
If you see it, 3 solutions:

  • Just enter your email you subscribed with in it, submit, and it's done, you can update your data if you wish on the next page, but in all cases you won't see this popUp again.
  • Or open your newsletter in your email, scroll down and click on visit our Email Subscription Center no need to do something else just close the webpage and you will NEVER see our popUp again.
  • Or simply wait for your next newsletter and when it will arrive in your email just go to read it, you have nothing else to do.

Submission Forms (Booking/Inquiry) Updated

We have updated our submission forms (Booking/Inquiry) to be compatible with the internet browser Safari from Apple which do not handle the HTML5 date picker unlike all other internet browsers (e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, and so on).
So now even Safari on macOS have a date picker on our website ☺.

We also have cut our long form in 3 short simple steps, where filling up the last step is optional as shown below.

step 1 step 2 step 3

Privacy Policy, Cookies, and Data Collection

We have updated our privacy policy, use of cookies and data collection for our online booking cart (coming very soon).
Also as of now we do NOT use anymore third-party widgets or statistical third-party services. (it's all home-made, outside of our website no one can track you here ☺)

Boracay Authorized Activities II

More good news as of today we can now offer in Boracay:

All this on top of the annoucement below.
More good news should be expected in the coming days.

Boracay Authorized Activities

Paraw sailing boats for rentals are authorized from the 5th of November.
Scuba Diving in and around Boracay (fun dives and scuba courses) are now authorized starting Wednesday 7 November 2018.

As of today, we are still waiting for island hopping and tour by motor banca boat to re-open.

Boracay Re-Opening the 26 October 2018

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) have authorized the re-opening of Boracay under some conditions. Basically, everything motorised is forbidden until further notice, it also includes Paraw Sailing boats and scuba-diving in Boracay.

So what can Scotty's Action Sports Network offer as marine activities until the full re-opening?

This list could change at any time, i.e. once the marine bio-diversity check has been done by the DENR next week, they might allow diving in and around Boracay. Paraws might get the go ahead again.

Do not hesitate to contact us for further information and new updates.

Email Disruption (Fixed)

Our website's host had encountered an email problem with some of its servers, earlier this morning. Sadly, we are in the two clusters which had this problem.
We were not able to answer your email or your online reservation right away, as we were not able to connect to our different accounts while they were trying to fix the problem.

Our host assured us that we were still receiving emails, but it seems that we didn't receive them all.

If you made any online reservations earlier this morning or last night, please do it again to be sure we have them.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
