    1. What do I need to bring?
      If there is medication you might require, keep it with you on the river. Towels, dry clothes, valuables, and other than waterproof cameras should be left locked in your car. Also bring a light lunch. On warm summer days, it is recommended to bring a small ice pack or frozen water bottle(s) to place in the water-tight lunch container inside your raft.
    2. How do I get back at the end of the day?
      Your vehicle will remain at the rafting center, and the free shuttle buses will take you to and from the river.
    3. How big are the rapids?
      The rapids for this trip are rated from Class I (easiest) to Class III. Please note that Spring and Fall usually have the highest water levels and strongest rapids.
    4. How deep is the water?
      River depths vary, slow, calmer stretches of water tend to be those that are deeper. Faster, choppy water tends to be shallow, often 4 feet deep or less. If you find yourself overboard (this is rare) in fast moving water, the proper procedure is to float on your back, feet pointed downstream. Don't attempt to stand until the water is less than 18 inches deep. A guide or nearby raft will assist you or you may prefer to simply swim to shore.
    5. Do I have to know how to swim?
      Swimming ability is not required and a life jacket is worn at all times. Please remember that whitewater rafting is an active sport. The larger the rapids, the better your physical conditioning should be.
    6. Do I need experience?
      No, all of the trips are guided and are appropriate for all levels.
    7. What are the costs to rent a wet suit?
      Rental fee is $20.00 for full wet suit package, $6.00 for a jacket, $6.00 for pants, $5.00 for booties and $3.00 for mittens (subject to change).
