Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking
Whitewater Rafting, Kayaking and River Trekking has been one of the tourism activities being promoted in the river. The city administration and the Department of Tourism made it as the banner tourism activity in Cagayan de Oro City. The jump-off point of the river, whitewater rafting is at Barangay Mambuaya, a 30-40 minute ride from the city proper.
Recently, whitewater rafting in the Cagayan River is gaining popularity through the years after President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other famous personalities in the country have tried the challenging whitewater rafting in the river.

Also have a look at Karen Jardeleza’s blog Simply Me — the June 25, 2011, post Cagayan de Oro: White Water Rafting.
A website called HitZin is sporting a YouTube video that was supposedly added December 31, 1969, titled Cagayan de Oro White Water Rafting — no bloody way! And a vindicating visit to the YouTube source reveals that the video was uploaded there on August 1, 2012 (I am editing this post on August 17, 2012).
So did the video owner feel no one wanted to listen to the actual sounds of the river rafting, and instead decided to override them all with his choice of current pop hits?
Anyway, here are some additional references:
