Whitewater Rafting Adventure

Mr. Ruperto M. Domingo is an adventure aficionado. He started as a mountaineer together with other group of colleagues’ way back college years. It was in the year 1985 to 1995 that they surveyed the virgin river of Cagayan de Oro by sections, making repeated crossing on inflated tire tubes or crude floats made of banana trunks. Painstakingly, they identified the different channels and stretches of the river. Studying the characteristics and honing their skills in paddling the wild rapids of Cagayan de Oro River to perfection. It took 10 years for Mr. Domingo and his partner Randy Corrales to transform their passion into a thriving business serving local and foreign clients. It was then in the year 1995 that they commercialize the whitewater rafting; 1st Rafting Adventure formerly known as Cagayan de Oro Whitewater Rafting Adventure (CDOWWRA).

Despite the fact that he was still working way back then, his strength of mind and determination push him to pursue his passion; whitewater rafting.
