Whitewater rafting is synonymous with Cagayan de Oro.
But many years ago, river boating was the favorite past time in the city. Today, there are only few boats used for leisure with Liceo de Cagayan University’s River Cruise (LINK) as the latest but after Sendong, little has been heard of it. Engr. Elpie Paras tried to introduce Oro Duck Tours (LINK) but it didn’t take off due to Sendong. The only river boats you see are used for sand quarrying.
Hopefully, river boating as a pastime will be back.
