We advise you to bring following equipments/ Gears for the Rafting::
Rafting is an adventure, exciting, wet, wild and unbelievably fun. However, as in all adventure sports, there is risk involved in rafting Trips. That risk contributes to the excitement, and is one of the reasons people enjoying it so much. Our guides are trained to minimize risks, and you must accept that risk when you go on the river. By the way, the most common injury is sunburn, and most other injuries occur on land, especially getting into and out of the boats.
Everyone on commercial rafting trips wears a coast guard approved buoyancy vest. This will keep you afloat in the event that you find yourself in the river. Many non-swimmers go on rafting trips, and they have a great time. It is more important that you are not afraid of the water. Non-swimmers should not go on class IV+ or class V trips, and should be comfortable in the water with a buoyancy vest for class III or IV. One things we have our one man single rescue Kayak. This safety kayak always front of us if some body fall down from water this Kayaks man (Kayaker) immediately rescue to the fallen people. This rescue Kayaker always waits at the ends of the risk place like Rapids.
On many rafting trips paddle boats are used. This means that you will have a paddle in your hands, and will be paddling. You should be reasonably healthy, and must be able to fit into the buoyancy vests supplied by the outfitter. Paddling can be tiring, but guides will instruct you on paddling technique. Oar boats, where you ride along as a passenger, are also available on many rivers. If you're in doubt about your ability to go rafting, or your fitness, check with your doctor before you go.
This depends on the time of year, water temperature, and weather. As a rule of thumb we recommend you dress for the water temperature, rather than the air temperature, since you'll be getting wet. Hotter days, with cold water, we recommend wearing a wet suit, which can be rented from us when you make your booking. Cooler days, with cold water, and especially Class V trips, we require a wet suit, or a wet suit/paddle jacket combination. You might also bring some synthetic fleece, polypro, capilene, or wool garments. Don't wear cotton. It will just make you colder. An old pair of tennis shoes, running shoes, or even converse hi-tops is the best on the river. Wet suit booties are good if it is cold. Sandals don't offer as much protection, and tend to come off easily in a swim. Sunglasses, especially prescription glasses, should have a croakie or other retainer that cinches tight. Consider a hat cord to tie your hat to your life jacket as well. In warmer weather, and late season warmer water, shorts and a T-shirt are good. Use sunscreen, but don't put it on your forehead, or the backs of your legs. It may run into your eyes, or cause you to be slipping all over the boat.
Start off with a class III, or an easier class IV trip. An alternative is to ride along on an oar boat, which many companies offer on different rivers. If you're confident in the water, healthy, and feel adventurous, you can drop right into a class IV river without prior experience. Guides will make sure you are trained in safety and paddle techniques. For class V Rivers, you must have prior class IV experience.
Believe it or not, many people love falling out of the boat. It's exciting. But it can be disorienting and a little overwhelming at first. Many people have taken multiple trips and never fallen in. Some people swim on their first trip. It's a part of rafting. Before you go on any trip, you'll be given extensive instructions on what to do if you fall in, and how to stay safe. Follow you're guide's instructions and your "swim" could be the most exciting part of your trip!
We don't recommend bringing video cameras, or even expensive still cameras, on trips. Many people bring disposable waterproof cameras, which work just fine. The quality of the pictures is pretty good, and if you lose it, it's not the end of the world. They are well suited to rafting. Some river trips have professional photographers, whose photos you can view and order after the trip.
Tipping is not expected, but is certainly appreciated by the guides, who work hard to make sure you have a fun, yet safe trip. If you feel your guide has done a good job, keeping you entertained, and sharing the wonderful river environment with you, then feels free to show your appreciation.
