Exploring Cagayan de Oro River's Whitewater Rafting

Cagayan de Oro River has everything that makes for an awesome and memorable experience with awesome power of water cascading over the rocks and boulders. Whitewater rafting and kayaking has been one of the city tourism activities being promoted in the river by the city administration and department of tourism. Many tourists came to try the beautiful and spectacular River of Cagayan de Oro. Many Philippine artists/TV personalities also have tried the whitewater rafting here and even the Philippine President, President Arroyo presently came to experience the adventure and discover the thrill of nature at its wildest. and the challenges of rapids.
Before climbing into the raft boat, our guide gave us a briefing, mostly on how to execute the guide’s command when to paddle easy, deep, forward, backward and relax. The challenges of rapids took us for more than 3 hours of adventure but whole experienced was far more than enough to express for us first timer.
