Join this whitewater rafting tour at Wildwater Adventure in Davao, which navigates through the gushing river at Davao’s highlands. This is a daring experience that will surely complete your vacation and leave you with many fun memories. The whole-day, 8-hour tour comes with a professional rafting guide, your gear, snacks, and round-trip transfer service. The whitewater course itself may take about 4 hours, after comprehensive rafting and safety training.
The fun adventure begins at the whitewater office near Crocodile Park. You will first attend a thorough orientation of what to expect and how to prepare oneself for the waters. There are videos from which to learn, and you will undergo fitting for the helmet and lifevest.
You will next be taken to the Davao River on a jeepney or van. By the riverbanks, the guides will teach you the buddy system, so you can look out for each other throughout the course. Before facing the rapids, there will be a drill. You will be taught how to paddle in different directions, what to do when you get thrown off the raft, how to pick up someone stranded in the water, and more.
The course includes numerous rapids, so you will definitely see a lot of action. Halfway through, you can park by an embankment to eat snacks. At the more challenging rapids, rafts do, in fact, capsize, and some people do get thrown off the boat. It’s all part of the experience — guides have a system to help reposition rafts and get people back into the boat quickly. In some sections of the river, guests are even encouraged to dip in the water and swim with the current.
All safety precautions are well-implemented for this adventure. For your part, please heed the guidance of the tour leader to ensure a deeply satisfying and very safe whitewater rafting.
