SAFETY:
- Safety is the most important part of any river trip. Choosing a professional veteran rafting guide is the first -step. So it helps to abide by the following tips:
- Pick your river with care. Seek information from river guide before raft. Literature on river levels and difficulty.
- There should be a minimum of two rafts per trip, So that one can help when a fall happens from the other.
- Carry first-aid kit, Survival and rescue gear.
- Check to see that end loops and the leash are adequate before you push off. This makes it easier to keep hold of your boat when swimming big rapids, and also in the event of rescue.
- Be a team person, paddle synchronously.
- For boats, paddles and helmets, loud colors are recommended.
- Wear life jackets and helmets, properly too
- Keep your feet and arms inside the raft at all time.
