Most people have their own ideas or impressions about what a whitewater river rafting trip like. Here are some points and questions about rafting you may not have considered in preparation for your next (or first) whitewater river rafting trip.


Expect to Get Wet on a Whitewater Rafting Trip
I know that getting wet on a whitewater rafting trip sounds like it’s a no-brainer and should go without saying. Still, there are a few people out there who think they are merely taking a ride “on” the river rather than fighting for their lives in the river. This means that you should dress for the occasion and only bring things that can, in fact, get wet.

Getting wet while whitewater rafting is a welcome reprieve from the heat on a hot day. It also adds to the thrill and excitement of the whole experience. Furthermore, the raft guides will usually let you jump in and swim at some point during the trip so you’ll want to be ready for that. Of course, there is always the chance of getting thrown out of the raft as you barrel down the river and as such it is imperative a person know how to swim. So the bottom line is to count on getting wet. Remember, if you don’t get wet while whitewater rafting then you’re probably doing something wrong.


Expect Not to Be Able to Bring Anything on the Raft
Rafts generally have very limited space for anything other than people. Rafts will usually carry a first aid kit and if you’re going on a full day trip a lunch is provided at the end. Remember also that anything you bring on the raft will get wet and is easily damaged. All of this is to say, don’t count on bringing anything on the raft with you. Of course, there can be ways around this by carrying small items in your lifejacket, paddling jacket or windbreaker, and any tight fitting pack you can wear on your waist.

Expect to Receive Whitewater Rafting Training on the Trip
It is quite common to wonder if you will receive training on your rafting trip. The answer is yes you will. It is in the rafting outfitters best interest for you to enjoy your time with them. It is also in their best interest that everything from the unloading of the raft to paddling down the river is as safe as it can be. Both mean that you must be trained and it is up to them to do so.

The training will usually consist of a safety briefing at the beginning of the day. Then at the river they will go through how to carry the raft on land as well as the signals your raft guide will use while on the water. Once on the water you will practice basic strokes with the paddle as you follow the guides commands. Of course all of this varies from outfitter to outfitter but it will be covered in some fashion or other.


Rafting with Children
Rafting poses different kinds of risks and chanlleges, however this does not mean that youngsters cannot get to experience of rafting the rapids. White water rafting is family-friendly and offers exciting opportunities for family bonding and exploration of nature and the environment.There are several things to consider should you decide to go Rafting with your kids. Here is a list of the things to keep in mind when running the white water with children:

  • Now, there is no age limit to book the rafting trip, however your kids must be above 20kg weight to join the rafting trip. It is really up to the parents or guardians, you are the ones who know if your kids will freak out when they fall into the river or not.
  • Ensure safety. Make sure your kids wear helmet, approved life jacket, and appropriate Rafting Clothing and footwear.
  • Take short Rafting Trips on easy or Class I or II rapids especially for young first timers. Let them experience what the activity is all about and if they like it, you can go for longer trips on Class II rapids above.
  • Keep the kids busy and entertained by giving small tasks while on the Raft. This will make them feel that they play an important role in the entire Water Rafting Trip.
  • Come up with different games such as identifying the plants and/or animals that the kids will see while on the Rafting journey.
  • Bring a lot of different snacks and water.
Discover the joys, challenges, and rewards of rafting with children. Get your little ones involved in your whitewater trips and you will find out that this is a great avenue for buliding water confidence, learning new knowledge, skills and family bonding.

Above all else, expect to Have Fun on a whitewater river rafting trip!
