Whitewater rafting is indeed a very exciting recreational activity which is popular all throughout the world. Before, rafting is only a means of transportation. But in this modern age, it becomes a pastime or a sport to some individuals. Rafting isn’t an easy activity. You get to encounter different classes of rapids until you get to bump into the most dangerous rapid: large waves and huge rocks. Safety is always important to this kind of activity.

Aside from being friendly (since the city is known to be as the City of Golden Friendship), the whitewater rafting guides are also equipped with professional skills traversing the Cagayan de Oro River a couple of times.
