What to Wear
For cooler weather, waterproof rain jackets/pants, splash jackets, and wetsuits are recommended. Cotton and jeans are not recommended as they retain water and make you colder. Wet suits, booties, and splash jackets are available for rent. Bathing suits must be worn under wet suit rentals.
How long does rafting take?
The activity begins with a 30-minute safety orientation. Guests will be on the water for approximately one hour.
Do I need experience?
No. Rafting is appropriate for all skill levels. Each raft will have a certified raft guide.
How many people can be on a raft?
Each raft can hold up to eight people, not including a guide. Smaller groups may be placed in a raft with other groups.
