M/Y TENNESSEE WALKER

On weekends, you may opt to enjoy the sunset in Manila Bay by taking this classic, the M/Y Tennessee Walker. Any information on this yacht's history is very much appreciated. For Php 250 (US$ 4.90), you can do an hour or two of sailing around the bay area. For Php 450 (US$ 8.82), you can both go sailing and have dinner, courtesy of the amazing Barbara's Catering (their main office is in the walled city of Intramuros, by the way).
My cousin says the cooks have to walk about in boots because there's a bit of sea water below the main deck. Hmmm. It's comforting to know that the Coast Guard ships are just berthed nearby....

I love that name: Tutubi Patrol. I used to catch tutubis when I was a gradeschooler in Pampanga.

This isn't anywhere near CCP. It is, however, parked there during the day but is towed to the Roxas Boulevard Baywalk area at night. You won't miss it :-)

Mabuhay!
