  1. Do I have to wear a life vest?

  2. Should I bring my camera?
    Like you, your camera will get wet.  It is suggested if you bring a waterproof camera to have a sturdy strap.

"The day was not too hot, a little rain but it just made it that much more fun. Our short bus trip to the river was fun as one of the guides was telling some ridiculous but hilarious jokes. Our guide was knowledgeable of everything on the river and a fun person to talk to. He really loved what he was doing. The scenery was beautiful and we just had an awesome time. Definitely will be going back."

"The water was so low that we barely hit any rapids at all. Spent more time waiting for people that were stuck on rocks than actually going down the river. It was a very disappointing experience overall. "
