Who Can Raft?
Anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking for adventure can raft. You need not be a fitness fanatic or an Olympic Athlete. TDA rafts typically hold an eight person crew and a guide.
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?
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 .
What about the weather?
Raft trips go rain or shine. Most rafters will get splashed and wet even on the driest days. Wear plenty of sunscreen on bright days as the sun's rays are much stronger reflecting off the water.
