White Water Rafting at CDO!

Cagayan de Oro

Cagayan de Oro City, the City of Golden Friendship and the regional hub for Northern Mindanao is also the white water rafting adventure capital of the Philippines. Cliche as it is,  but it is definitely true that you’ve never been to CDO if you haven’t tried riding on its wild rapids.

Cagayan de Oro is the white water rafting adventure capital of the Philippines

Approximately 22 kilometers of the river’s stretch is where the actions take place. It consists of more than 25 rapids of up to class 5, or practically for almost all levels of rafters, from beginner, advance and even extreme. You can decide if you want it super wild or modestly mild, unlimited flips or surprisingly dry, but whatever you choose, one thing is guaranteed, a day of fun in the river.

It is also here where you can find the cheapest rates among all white water rafting destinations in the country. Another good thing here is that, the prices are standardized by the local government. Beginner course is as low as P700.00 per person exclusive of meals; Advance courses(1 and 2) are at P1200.00 and P1500.00 per pax; Extreme at P2000.00.

    Hi Admin,

    I’d like to inform you that Kagay’s official website is http://www.kagaycagayandeororafting.com/

    May I request that the website listed on this page be replaced with the one I’ve mentioned above?

    That’d be highly appreciated from our end.

    Hi!nice blog! i read it every now and then especially if i’m going somehere para sa mga tips. 🙂 i just would like to ask if nagpackage tour ka sa cdo?and sino outfitters nyo sa white water rafting?thank you and good day!

    1. Hi Shen, i usually go with First White Water Rafting Tour (Mang Rupert and company) for the river ride. But I also tried last month the White Water + Dahilayan Zip package with meals and transportation which I find very cheap, convenient and reasonable price, and their river guides are fun to be with. Wait, I forgot the operator of that package, I will post it later 🙂

    2. Shen, it’s Great Whitewater Tours , they have Dahilayan and White Water Rafting Package, sobrang okay nung package.
