To start with, all of my friends are like me, malakas ang trip so we all agreed to take the Expert Course. Oh yeah, not just the Beginner and Advanced Course. (there are 4 courses pala: beginner, advance, expert, and extreme) With intensive exposures from flooded areas of Bulacan, Malabon & Valenzuela during rainy and high tide seasons, no wonder we're all thrilled to experience the Expert Course Rafting!

Our guide is Clint, a certified Kagay. Btw, we availed their photo service for only P250, which also includes a CD! The photographer rides a kayak. Cool eh?
This is the standard ride that will pick up the guests.
by Kagay - the finest
Actually we were taken to another spot. The Kagays just picked up our rafts and gears here.
When were in the starting point for Experts Course, Clint held an orientation by the river. Here's our favorite lesson:
High Five! Ü
We're ready for the rapids of Cagayan River.
Moving on.. more activities of course!
Series of water splashes.
The sudden drops...
This is paddling against the rapids. Our goal is to turn the raft upside down. We extremely enjoyed this part.
For the finale, everyone must jump out of the raft to rapids. Oh yeah, you will be submerged for a while, so just go with the current and you will find yourself in the other end of the river. Cool!
This activity was so fun! And because Im with my dear friends, this experience became 8x memorable and 8x more fun! This activity alone makes our Mindanao trip very sulit.
After those tiring activities that day, we headed to Wilshire Inn to sleep. We availed 2 rooms for 8 persons. We paid P266 each. Tipid yet comfy accommodation.
Contrary to some bad reviews, the rooms are clean, spacious, have well functioned aircon units, flat screen TV, and comfortable beds/mattresses/pillows. Yes I do recommend Wilshire Inn for budget accommodation.
