Advice from Previous Rafters

Most first time rafters have a lot of questions before their trip. Adventure is fun but it is always nice to know what to expect. To help answer those questions, prepare you for your trip, and insure you get the most from your experience, and we have compiled the most common tips from our previous rafters.

  • “I wish I would have known to bring dry clothes as a first time whitewater rafter.”
  • “You get wet, and some seats get soaked, so electronics need protection or better yet don’t bring them. Items can be left on the bus since the bus you ride on it the bus you go back on.”
  • “Be prepared to get wet! Volunteer for the front if possible. Look up during the slower portions for chances to see bald eagles and ospreys– we saw both on the trip.”
  • “We didn’t pack a bag of dry clothes and we wished we had, the bus driver stayed on/with the bus so it would have been fine to leave a bag on the bus.”
  • “We wished we would have known that it was a short hike at the end of the ride. Not difficult, super easy, but just good to know.”
  • “So glad we had wetsuits for the rafting and dry towels and clothes to change into for the bus ride back.”
  • “The wetsuits were quite helpful.”
  • “If you have binoculars, be sure to bring them with you. It greatly increases your visual enjoyment.”
  • “If you go you must sit up front because that is where the big rapids and water are really fun….”
  • “Sit in the front if you want to get wet!!”
