Why choose River Tay white water rafting?

Our white water rafting course on the River Tay is ideal for those who are beginners as well as the seasoned adrenaline junkies for many reasons;

Incredible scenery
You can admire Perthshire at its best along the River Tay. Fortunately, this route has some calm sections as well as the action-packed river runs, so you can stop and marvel at the scenery and keep a look out for the wildlife too.

Practice your technique
River Tay white water rafting is perfect for those who want to learn more about the skill of white water rafting and practise your paddling. However, we should point out that some stretches are untameable no matter how good your paddling is!

For those who want to splash and frolic in the water without the stomach-churning rapids, then River Tay white water rafting is just the ticket for a fun-filled day out with friends and family. With all the necessary safety equipment provided, you can relax and get competitive with friends over a friendly water fight or two.

A workout
Believe it or not, you will actually want to paddle when the waves become more forceful. Paddling gives you an extra bracing point, making you feel more secure. The harder you paddle, the safer you will feel inside the raft. Not only does paddling help you to feel confident in the raft, but it will be a workout you will not even realise you are doing.

Rafting River Grades

Grade 1 - Very small rough areas, requires no maneuvering. (Skill Level: None)
Grade 2 - Some rough water, maybe some rocks, might require maneuvering.(Skill Level: Basic Paddling Skill)
Grade 3 - White water, small waves, maybe a small drop, but no considerable danger. May require significant maneuvering. (Skill Level: Experienced paddling skills)
Grade 4 - White water, medium waves, maybe rocks, maybe a considerable drop, sharp maneuvers may be needed. (Skill Level: White water Experience)
Grade 5 - White water, large waves, maybe large rocks and hazards, maybe a large drop, precise maneuvering (Skill Level: Advanced White water Experience)
Grade 6 - Class 6 rapids are considered to be so dangerous as to be effectively un-navigable on a reliably safe basis. Rafters can expect to encounter substantial white water, huge waves, huge rocks and hazards, and/or substantial drops creating severe impacts beyond the structural capacities and impact ratings of the raft. Traversing a Class 6 rapid has a dramatically increased likelihood of ending in serious injury. (Skill Level: Successful completion of a Class 6 rapid without serious injury is widely considered to be a matter of luck)
