Rafting: What to Bring

Summer Wear:
  • Bathing suits
  • Shorts
  • T-shirts
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Tennis Shoes
Spring & Fall Wear:
  • Windbreakers
  • Wool Sweaters
  • Wool Pants
  • Optional: Wool stocking cap and socks
  • Tennis shoes

Ladies you will want to wear shorts over your swimsuit. River shoes such as Tevas are optional but no open back sandals are allowed including flip flops. Please avoid Crocs. If you plan to use tennis shoes we recommend using an old pair as they will definitely get wet. Baseball caps are optional for keeping the sun out of your eyes. If you wear prescription glasses, be sure to attach them with Chum’s or Croakies (available in our retail store). Quick drying fabrics are recommended over cotton which retains water. In cool weather poly and synthetic fabrics are useful as a substitute for wool. If it is cool out we provide complimentary spray jackets and spray pants to wear over your clothes.

What to avoid:

  • Flip flops no-flip-flops
  • Jeans / denim pants
  • In cooler weather: Cotton fabrics

 

We provide:

  • A guide and all necessary equipment including paddles, helmets and life jackets
  • Complimentary spray pants and spray jackets in cool weather
  • Transportation to and from the river
  • Changing rooms and hot showers

 

Other items to bring:

  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • A dry change of clothes for after the trip –  you will get wet!
  • A dry pair of shoes
  • Towels and shower items
  • Extra spending money if you are interested in T-Shirts or trip photos.

 

Remember souvenirs and photos of your trip will be available for purchase at our retail shop:
