How safe is white water rafting?
Whitewater river rafting is so exciting a sport that the risks involved in it are worth taking. At escapade we do everything to minimize the risk element and to maximize the fun and excitement. Safety is of utmost importance for us and before every trip we have a safety orientation and outfit you with a life jacket that keeps you afloat even in rough water and helmet that saves you from getting any head injury.

Our guides raft year round, and have all run class II to class V water and are experts at not only running the river, but at making your day trip or camping expedition a memorable event.

Do we have to know how to swim?
One can’t swim in rough white water and as you are wearing a life jacket all the time on the river and are designed to float you face up, you do not to know swimming to go river rafting! The guides instruct you before the trip on what to do in the small chance (more likely on higher grade adventure trips) of you falling in the river.
