Cagayan de Oro City has been hailed as the adventure capital of the Philippines. This city offers so many choices of adventure sports and recreational activities. Currently, the most popular of them all is white water rafting.
The white water rafting rivers of the city have proven to be the best in the country. Already, local and foreign tourists have flocked the city to get a taste of the renowned Philippine white water rafting.
It is easy to book and schedule a rafting trip with the leading white water rafting CdO tour company, 1st Rafting Adventure Philippines. They have an official website and Facebook page where tourists—especially those from outside Cagayan de Oro—can easily contact their staff and make bookings.
For white water rafting, typical beachwear is ideal although rash guards are more preferable. Rafters should also bring sunblock lotion or wear long-sleeved rash guards to avoid sunburns.
A meeting place can be arranged, but it is ordinarily set at Plaza Divisoria where 1st Rafting Adventure’s jeepneys will be waiting. Meeting time is usually at 6:00 am (also negotiable) to provide leeway for the 40 minutes or so travel time before reaching the starting point of the rafting adventure.
There is a short prep time before rafting starts, during which everyone is outfitted with life vests, helmets and paddles. After a short orientation for basic rules and commands, safety precautions and paddling styles, the rafters will be grouped at a maximum of 10 people per raft.
At the end of each course is a facility where adventure rafters can shower, change and order a bite to eat. Jeepneys will then transport the rafters back Plaza Divisoria.
White water rafting Cagayan de Oro is one of the best things you, together with family or friends, can experience during the summer. This is best experienced as a group. If you’re looking for thrill and excitement, try white water rafting Cagayan de Oro style.
