Frequently Asked Questions

You do not need experience as all trips are Professionally Guided, but you should be comfortable in and around water. Guides will be in a separate boat near you but not in your boat.

You will get very wet as you will be going through big slashes and waves as you enjoy our great rapids. You also have the choice to float out of the boat the lazy river “habitat float” a narrow mild section of our river that flows through a Blue Heron rookery.

Going for a short swim is always a possibility of a whitewater trip. You’ll be wearing a Type V USCG-approved personal flotation device and we’ll brief everyone on what to expect and how to behave in the event that someone does fall out.

Surfing in a raft is one of the most fun things on our river. Surfing happens when the raft rides in a wave without flipping. This involves skillful maneuvers from your guide. Since surfing happens in instances when the raft is balanced on top of rapidly circulating water, the chances of having an out of the boat experience is increased.


Just can’t get enough whitewater time?
