If you are looking for a fun and memorable experience in Davao you must try whitewater rafting! 😉 and Base Camp Davao provides this unique service. The package cost 1,500 pesos per person which is inclusive of transportation, food,Basecamp T-Shirt, safety gears, guides and CD of all the pictures 🙂 supah sulit diba.

To schedule a trip with them, you must book ahead of your schedule plus they require at least 5 persons per trip but you can join the schedule of others if your group is below the required minimum number of persons. Well, if you really want to go out on your own group with less participants and with no other groups going on same schedule, you still can although you have to pay for the cost of other 5 persons.

The rafting takes 2 to 3 hours to finish the 13-km long course.

They can schedule 2 rafting trips in the day and my friends and I decided to choose morning batch that starts at 7 am  in the morning. We were picked up by basecamp jeepney from our hotel to their office where we got first our gear and signed waiver forms. It takes about an hour jeepney ride towards the starting point (put-in area) at Tamugan bridge.

contract signing LOl 🙂
White water rafting is not new to me 🙂 because this is my second time to try this kind of activity, first is in CDO.

We booked package activity that includes zipline and rafting with free lunch. The package cost around 2,400 php per person including all ride zipline and a 4 hours whitewater rafting which I think is really a good deal. I’m so scared coz that was my first time doing whitewater rafting and I didn’t have any idea how to do it pa.  Plus, I heard some story pa na natanggalan daw sila ng ipin dahil sa tumama ang mukha sa mga bato or naipit sa ilalim ng rubber boat something like that! whaaa parang gusto ko na nga magback out that time pero naisip ko palng yung 2,400 na ibinayad ko hahaha bumabalik yung mga paa ko! hahaha 😂

My super team CDO

Good thing about this activity is that you don’t need to form a group just to do whitewater rafting. All you have to do is book a trip to CDO and go directly to the company that offers this kind of activity, and they’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the destination (Cagayan River). Don’t worry if you’re just one or couples because they will re-group you with other guests.
