River Rafting Davao Tour Packages / White Water Adventure


River Rafting Davao

people river rafting white water

There are few adventure travel experiences that compare to river rafting on white water, and Davao offers arguably the best, year-round rafting opportunity in Asia. The Davao river rafting adventure starts early (muster at 7am in Davao City) and takes you into early afternoon. It will give you so much to post on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube et al that you will want to invite all of your friends to join you on your next Davao travel adventure.

Where Is The River Rafting

Less than one hour West of Davao City, in the foothills of the dramatic mountains that rise above Davao, the clear–water rivers cascade and gush with white water over rapids, apparently made especially for your own group adventure. Safety First: the start of the river rafting adventure is along a quiet stretch of water where you will be taught to float in the river and get back aboard the rafting boat.

Travel–Davao will take you on this river rafting adventure and make sure you have everything you need, you need to bring very little except some clothes that you don’t mind getting wet.

The River Selection

The rafting river is divided into stages to ensure everyone gets the maximum fun and enjoyment. In each stage there are special highlights, and videos are taken from the river bank so that you can take home something to share from your adventure. So long as the river is at a safe level, all adventures start where you kiss the wall . . . and from there on it is a wild white water river ride until the boats come to shore. Watch the Kiss The Wall video now!

lunch on the Davao River

Along the river you will get to see river & forest birds and other animals. The half–way lunch stop will give you time for a quite swim or a relaxing stretch on the sand, in the shade of some ancient trees. Note: river rafting does not require that you know how to swim as flotation devices are provided.

Whether you have been on white water before or not, you will find more fun on the rivers above Davao City than anywhere else you have been.
