1. Don’t bring new shoes
White water rafting will mean you will get wet, drenched at times even. With this in mind, we recommend that you wear old trainers or walking boots. These will be the most comfortable should be shoes that you really don’t mind getting wet. Take a spare pair of shoes to go home in too, so that you are entirely comfortable after your adventure.

Many people want to take photos or videos of their adventure. Clip on activity cameras are great for white water rafting, but you must make sure they are completely secure and entirely waterproof. Do not underestimate the power of the water being able to take your camera or infiltrate parts. Unless it is designed for these activities, do not take any chances.
