Whitewater Kayaking Bulsa River Maamot San Jose Tarlac Paddle Kayak Extreme Sports Water Safety Equipment Rental Rapid Stream Ecotours Office Reservation Tickets Paddling Duration Surfing Cliff Whitewater Kayaking is a new extreme sport at the rapids of the Bulsa River in San Jose, Tarlac. Explore the breathtaking landscapes of San Jose, Tarlac while having the adventure of a lifetime in an inflatable kayak. As you paddle down the incredible rivers, you will be immersed in nature, surrounded by mountains, and face to face with wildlife. Class 1 & 2 rapids the whole family will enjoy. The rapids are generally smooth and gentle to moderately quick, and the passages between rocks are clear and open. The activity is organized from Rapid Stream Ecotours, the sole proprietor of kayaking trips in the region. The paddling begins in the mountain village of Maamot, where the body of water originates and traverses through the landscapes of San Jose and its rural scenes. The next few hours in the water the pace increases and becomes a more intense ride, as the river picks up and churns the kayak around with its frothy tide. On some days, the current is at its most powerful and can even capsize the kayak – making for a veritable roller coaster ride. Shortly thereafter, the river returns to a calmer mood once again, inviting riders to gaze upon the majestic mountains looming in the distance and to bask in quietude as they recover from the adrenaline rush.

For the more adventurous, there are spots along the river to enjoy cliff jumping and kayak surfing. Going through the almost 13 kilometer stretch of the Bulsa River will take riders around three to four hours, with a good mix of adrenaline rush and peaceful solitude – the perfect antidote to a stress-ridden urban life. Kayaking in the rapids of Tarlac might lead to strained arms and an exhausted body, but the adventure amidst the beauty and majesty of nature is definitely worth it. How much does it cost to whitewater kayak in Tarlac? The complete kayaking experience will cost about P2,500, which includes the safety briefing, snacks, and the use of the safety equipment (helmets, vests and kayak). The Rapid Stream site office is conveniently located at the end of the river route.
