When most people organize a rafting trip, one of the main questions that comes up deals with how many people our rafts can fit. Below are several questions and answers that can help you decide and learn how many rafts your group will need.
Our raft can accomodate 6 to 8 rafters, plus a guide in the back. Usually there will be 4-7 people in a raft depending on the size of the group. If you have a smaller group size, you may be put into a raft with another group.
Since our rafts fit 6-8 people, we do our best to keep groups in the same raft. If you have 8 or less, chances are you will be in the same raft. If you have more, we typically will split the group evenly across 2 rafts.
We do have rafts that can fit up to people, so on most occasions on the Class 3 rivers they will be on the same raft. We do not put 8 people in a boat on Class 4 rivers, so a group of 8 will be split into different boats.
We do our best to insure that everyone stays in the raft during the big rapids. You can learn more about what happens if you fall out of the raft in our blog.
