One of Davao’s newest attraction is white water rafting on the Davao River. The three-hour run starts from the highlands of Baguio District, then down to Calinan, and then the lowlands. The day-trip and adventure has about 30 rapids of varying degrees of difficulty. There’s also additional activities for the more adventurous, like cliff-side rappelling.
The Davao Wild Water Adventure Inc. (Crocodile Park Compound, Riverfront Corporate City, Davao,) is the premier white-water rafting sports facility in the region. The company’s day-trip takes newbies and experienced paddlers on a 15-km adrenalin-rush ride downstream the majestic Davao River. Tourists are given thorough, on-location training on land and in the river, including paddling basics. The river trip promises a row of downstream water adventures, such as swirling waters called “washing machines,” sudden drops, “kiss-the-walls” and more. The five-hour ride also brings adventurers to the rich flora surrounding the river.
