Advanced White Water Rafting in Cagayan de Oro

welcome to cdo

It was a not so eventful day for the rest of the world, as it was still dark when we boarded the plane from Cebu to Cagayan de Oro. But for us, it was a beginning of an exciting and adrenaline-pumping escapade.

When we arrived there, we waited in the airport terminal gate for our bus to pick us up en route to the starting point.

It was somewhat cloudy but you could see some rays of the sun seeping through the clouds.

We had some briefing first, what we need to know in case something happens. But most importantly, Dodoy our rafting guide said, Enjoy white water rafting in Cagayan de Oro rapids!


After half the duration of the trip, it started raining. And then it poured really hard as if there was a storm going on. I was literally shaking because it was so cold and I was afraid too. But my friends (who were ironically all girls) were having fun. I don’t know if they’ve realized what a dangerous situation it was – visibility was zero, lightning was striking everywhere, branches and leaves were flying about.

The rain stopped after 30 minutes of downpour then it calmed so we went on our way to finish the course.

It was a cool experience all in all, never mind the “storm in the middle of the raging sea” experience.

    Hello and Happy New Year. Thanks again for the visit. It will definitely be an interesting election. After a few more comments come in for my post about “Who would you vote for?” I will post my opinion next. I hope that we can still be friends. With all due respect to Conrado De Quiros I have always wanted a few more solid facts rather than poignant opinion when making such an important decision.
    I agree by the way with Kate. I have always wanted to go white water rafting but never wanted to do it upside down in the water dodging big rocks. ;o) Maybe someday when I improve my swimming skills.
    Ingat Lagi. ;o)

  7. Oh wow that looks awesome, although I think I will have to stick with a “3” trip, “4” looks a little too scary for me. I will do it someday with or without my dear hubby.
