Do’s and don’ts of water rafting


There are a few rafting Do’s & Don’ts you should always follow when taking your whitewater rafting trip…

Step One

DO - Wear a Life Jacket.

Step Two

Make sure your life jacket is snug and buckled at all times.

Step Three

Listen to your river guides – they are there to keep you safe! Notify your river guides of any medical conditions you may have.

Step Four

Wear proper shoes – no flip flops, slippers, or bare feet. Old Sneakers, water shoes, or sandals with an ankle strap work best.

Step Five

Help your fellow rafters back into your raft if they unintentionally fall into the water, even if you do not know them.

Step Six

DON't - Do not stand up in moving current. If you unintentionally fall into the water, you want to float on your back with your toes pointed up, facing downstream.

Step Seven

Do not wear cotton if you are going rafting in the cold weather. For the cooler months wetsuits, neoprene, polypropylene and wool are all items you can wear to keep you warm and dry.

Step Eight

Do not bring/use alcohol or illegal substances while on your trip. It is dangerous and can bring harm to you, your guides, and fellow rafters.

Step Nine

Do not use your paddle as a splashing device.

Step Ten

Avoid fallen debris and trees/branches in the river. NEVER GO RAFTING ALONE!
