Know before you go
- No previous rafting experience is needed
- Self-bailing rafts will hold max 6–7 persons + guide

- Rivers and rapids are rated on an international scale of 1–6 (easy to near impossible); as the number rises, the difficulty and excitement increase
- Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult
- On colder days, participants should bring extra clothing to wear under the paddle jacket; polypropylene or wool garments provide the best insulation when wet (not cotton)
