FAQ About Rafting

Q: WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

Q: WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
A: May–June & September: Bathing suit/nylon shorts, sunscreen, sunglasses with a retainer, fleece or polypropylene top (no cotton!), wool socks, bottled water, warm change of clothes for after the trip.

July–August: Bathing suit/nylon shorts, sunscreen, sunglasses with a retainer, polypropylene top for class 4-5 trips (no cotton!), bottled water, change of clothes for after the trip.

Q: HOW DO I DECIDE WHAT RIVER IS BEST FOR ME?
A: We employ the international river rating system to describe the waters we paddle: Class II – Class V rivers and creeks. New rafters and kayakers should get a feel for the type of whitewater that suits them best by starting out on a less difficult trip.
