PEASE READ:     Life vests are always recommended for children. Anyone who is the slightest bit uncomfortable about their swimming abilities should also wear a life vest. If there are rapids or strong currents, everyone should wear a life vest.

 If you do not know how to swim or are unsure of your swimming abilities wear a life vest.

Keep any glass containers at home. Broken glass is painful on bare feet!

If you take a cooler, make sure it is properly secured so items don’t fall out. Never take a Styrofoam cooler floating with you. They break apart and create a mess.

Hats and sunglasses are a help as well. You’ll be on the river for hours and the glare can be bad without these items.

Carry a dry bag for any items that shouldn’t get wet (car keys, cell phones, cameras, towels, etc…)

If the river is rocky, consider wearing water shoes. Rocks and stumps can be tough on waterlogged feet.

Don’t forget the suntan lotion. Being burnt on the river is never fun, especially the days following your trip!

Take dry clothes and towels and leave them in the vehicle parked at the take-out point.

Tying your tubes together is not recommended. It makes it difficult to maneuver if something is in the way, such as a stump or rock. The ropes also tend to snag on any limbs or debris.
