What To Bring

Although raft dates usually offer good water flow and pleasant weather, conditions on the river can vary, so come prepared.

On the river, wear clothes that dry quickly, such as swimsuits or light shorts and shirts of synthetic material. Avoid cotton clothes, especially jeans. Bring waterproof sunscreen and a hat.  We provide helmets as part of your trip.  If you choose to wear a helmet, the helmet will hold your hat on.  If you choose to not wear a helmet, we can give you a piece of string to tie you hat to your lifejacket so your hat does not blow away.   If you wear eyeglasses or sunglasses, they should be secured with a strap. (We sell sunscreen, hats and Chums eyeglass straps at our office.)
