Is Canyoning in Cebu safe?

Though it’s exhilarating, canyoning is definitely safe to do. You’ll get a life jacket, helmet, and a pair of aqua shoes from your tour company (make sure to wear comfortable clothes). There is a minimum of two experienced guides per group, too, making sure everything goes well. Listen closely to their instructions, and the only thing you have to be scared about is your condition.

How do you get to Badian?

If you’re staying in Cebu City, and a pickup from your tour company is not included, then use the Ceres Bus. Their yellow buses will bring you to almost every point on Cebu Island.

Taking the bus to Badian:

  1. Go to the Cebu South Terminal
  2. Take the Ceres Bus (yellow bus)
  3. Bato via Barili route (tell the driver to drop you at Kawasan Falls)

This will cost you around 120 PHP (2.11 USD)/pax and take about 3 hours to get there.

Where to stay while Canyoneering?

Moalboal is very close to Badian, but keep in mind that this cheaper option can be fully booked due to the lack of accommodations.

Another option would be Cebu City, though it’s quite far away from Badian (around a 3-hour drive). However, some tours offer a free pick-up and drop-off from here.

      Hi Faye,

      We are unsure about this but it might be worth (using the link in the guide to the tour options) booking a private tour so they can tailor it to fit both you and your son. Sorry we can’t help more but we hope you find something!
