A pair of adventurers has shared footage of their amazing trip to an Enchanted River.

The adventurers, Dara Angelia and Ceejay Samonte, can be seen swimming through a crystal clear blue river.

The ‘Enchanted River’ is sitauted in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur – a province in the Philippines.


Dara, 25, said: “Swimming is prohibited in that deep, dark blue part of the river, so we just observed the water and the fishes.

“You can clearly see them as the water is so clear.

“There’s a designated swimming area, and it was so much fun even though the current was so strong so we struggled to swim.

“We were just laughing as we fought the current.


“It’s a one of a kind place, it was very relaxing. It was so beautiful, serene and mesmerising. I was completely awe-struck when I first saw the water.

“The Enchanted River definitely lives up to its name.”
