- White Water Rafting |
White water rafting puts you in an inflatable raft along a river or other body of water, usually white-water, as you bounce and glide your way down-river. Usually all members of the team will be involved in paddling the very durable raft which can hold up to 8 people.
The route taken and the level of white-water depends upon the ability of the group. Participants wear waterproofs, buoyancy aids and helmets as it is possible to be thrown out of the raft.
