On warmer days, a swim suit or T-shirt and shorts are fine. Sunscreen and a visor or brimmed hat are always a good idea. In cooler weather a windbreaker is useful. Avoid cotton, especially sweat shirts and sweat pants, which will actually make you colder. Paddling jackets and wet suits can be rented at the Rafting Center.

RAFT GROUPINGS: We will organize your group into rafting teams (usually 6 or 7 per raft) before you get to the river. How many members will attend? This is a multi-Meetup group event. This page only shows a small portion of the actual attendees. Based on other RSVPs and members who have already prepaid, we expect 50+ members to attend. Is this age/ethnic specific? No. We'll have a wide range of ages attending. All ages welcome. *MUST PURCHASE IN ADVANCE HERE - *Only $119.00 (Limited space available and this will sell out quickly).
