Bring a bathing suit, T-shirt and comfortable shorts or pens. Do not wear sweatshirts or jeans. Bring a change of clothes and towel for after the trip. Footwear must be worn at all times on the river. Sneakers or soft soled shoes are good.

Is rafting safe?
There is an element of risk in any adventure sport or activity associated with the outdoors. Because of the inherent risk, dangers and rigors required of rafting the rivers, rafters are required to sign a participation agreement  of risk assumption. The trip guides are all experts and long experienced. The equipment meets the safety standards and regulations. Outfitters provide life jackets and helmets. A major medical kit accompanies each trip. If you are concerned about your physical ability to take a trip, consult your physician. Use of drugs and alcohol prior to or during the trip is forbidden. Outfitters reserve the right to refuse trip participation.

Do I have to know how to swim?
No, but a healthy respect for and lack of fear of the water is recommended. Your outfitter will conduct a pre-trip river orientation and safety lecture .
