What Should I Bring Rafting?

Whitewater Rafting can be a great experience, and knowing what and what not to bring can make it better! From personal items to whats provided, we dive into what you should bring on a whitewater rafting trip.

What Can I bring Rafting?

Good things to bring on a rafting trip are secure foot protection, sunglasses, a hat, sunscreen, and water!

Can I bring my Phone Rafting?

We recommend that you leave your phone behind during the rafting trip. It will get wet if you bring it and there is a risk of losing it on the river. In addition to not having cell service most of the time, there also will not be much time during the rapids to take it out, as you will be paddling!

Can I Bring a Camera Rafting?

A small, waterproof camera can be a great idea to bring with you on a rafting trip. As long as it is waterproof and has a secure place to live during the rafting trip. We do not recommend expensive cameras or those that are large and not waterproof, as we do not want them to get wet or break.

There is a professional photo company taking photos of our rafts tackling the major rapids on the river, so you will be able to view and purchase those after the trip.

Can I bring Alcohol Rafting?

No, any alcoholic drink is not allowed or tolerated before or during a whitewater rafting trip.

Do you provide food rafting?

All of our One Day and Full Day rafting trips include a riverside lunch. We do not provide lunch on our Half Day Trips, so it would be a good idea to bring snacks or a meal for before and after the trip.

Can I bring a GoPro rafting?

Yes, GoPros are great cameras to bring on a whitewater rafting trip! Most of the time, the best place to put a GoPro is on the helmet. Some of our helmets have mounts that have been put there by previous guests, but Its best to bring your own mount and equipment. Chest mounts are a bit more difficult because of the PFD, and we do not recommend handheld poles or selfie sticks.

What should I not bring rafting?

We recommend that you leave anything valuable and not waterproof behind when you go on a rafting trip. Items that you would not want to lose, car keys, wallets, phones, are all best left locked in your car.

Can I bring my dog rafting?

We do love our furry friends, dogs and other animals are not allowed at our camp or on a rafting trip.
