Cagayan de Oro River Rafting | The Adventure Begins

Since none of us never tried this kind of excursion before, we've decided to take the beginner's course. The Beginners Course is  a 12.32 km river course that takes 3-4 hours from Brgy. Mambuaya to Kabula, 14 major rapids for P900 per head which includes snack, lunch and transportation.
 After a short briefing from our guide, he told us to get ready and followed him by the river so we can get on the raft. Getting on the raft for the first time was quite nerve wracking. I can't seem to explain the speed of my heartbeat at that moment.
So right after we launched the raft, we started practicing our strokes and listening to our guide’s commands.
It was extreme with lots of thrills and spills! We've actually faced a few strong rapids on the way to our second set of rapids.
Everyone's hanging on for dear life. 
I have to say that there's no dull moment for this kind of adventure! Our guide was very cool and packed with sense of humor.

More updates coming soon....:)
