Frequently Asked Questions
You do not need experience to raft all trips are Professionally Guided, but you should be comfortable in and around water
We accommodate up to 4 guests per boat on the Carnage trip. Other trips can range from 4-7 guests per boat.
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.
The river is low-risk. With over 40 years of experience, Whitewater Express’ risk management procedures are unsurpassed. We train our guides extensively and follow the most up-to-date industry standards. However, it is important that you and your group know this: Whitewater rafting, like all adventure activities, involves inherent risks. It is important that guests know their comfort level and take proper responsibility for their own safety. If Whitewater Express staff feel that any individual is not in the proper condition to raft, we reserve the right to not allow that individual to raft for his or her own safety.
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.
