Rafting is exhilarating, fun, exciting and wet. However, as in all sports, rafting does pose an inherent risk. The risk contributes to the excitement and enjoyment of the people who participate in rafting. Our guides are all trained to minimize those risks and if you are a believer in statistics, you are safer on a whitewater rafting trip than driving in your car! Injuries and accidents as a whole are very rare in this industry, often times when they do occur they are a result of a lack of knowledge and experience. Isn’t that why you are seeking information about a guided rafting trip? Most of the injuries that do occur are from sunburns or on land. But still, there is a risk, and you must sign an assumption of risk form, acknowledging the types of risk before you go on a river trip.
