One of the reasons we love hitting the rapids is the thrill it gives us. The feeling we get when the raft jumps through the churning whitewater and the thrill of just barely hanging on in rough water can be exhilarating, especially since we know that we have all of our safety equipment on, and that all of our fellow rafters are looking out for us.
Staying safe on the water doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun, and keeping you safe is always our top priority. That’s why we’ve published a new guide on our site: Whitewater Rafting Safety: Shoot the Rapids and Live To Tell the Tale.
Check out our comprehensive guide to make sure you know what to do when someone in your raft takes a spill into the river. Find out how to make sure your equipment does it’s job, the history of staying safe on the river, and even learn some of the statistics that demonstrate that you’re in good hands on the river.
While we can guarantee that you’ll be safer if you follow these tips, we still can’t guarantee that you won’t take a dip, but that’s half the fun right there!
