Whitewater Rafting is a recreational activity utilizing a raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid 1970s. Whitewater Rafting in the Philippines originally started as a “hobby” by a group of outdoor sports enthusiasts organized by the Cagayan de Oro Whitewater Rafting Adventure sometime in June of 1995. Cagayan de Oro City is home to some of the most scenic and exhilarating whitewater rafting and dubbed as the “adventure capital” in the Philippines.
