White Water Rafting
White water rafting is one of the great challenges against natures. It’s the thrill of going headlong into a wall of powerful water and feeling your raft bend as you push through it, straight into the next exhilarating rapid.
IS RAFTING DANGEROUS?
Rafting is thrilling, exciting, wet, wild and unbelievably fun. However, as with all adventure sports, there is inherent and assumed risk involved. Risk contributes to the excitement, and is one of the reasons people enjoy rafting at all levels. The guides working for Dalat Passion Tours are trained to minimize and manage risks, and statistically speaking, you’re safer in a raft than in your car.
WILL I FALL OUT OF THE BOAT? WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I DO?
Plan “A” is always to stay in the boat, but believe it or not, many people love falling out of the raft, after the fact. It’s exciting, but it can be disorienting and a little overwhelming at first. Many people have taken multiple trips and never fallen in. Some people swim on their first trip. It’s all a part of rafting.
HOW FIT SHOULD I BE TO GO RAFTING?
You should be reasonably healthy, can swim and must be able to fit into the life vests supplied by us. Paddling can sometimes be tiring, but your guides will instruct you on paddling techniques in the safest way.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING AND WEAR?
- Shorts, T – shirts, shoes or sandals.
- Take a set of dry clothes and flip-flops to change into after your trip.
HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT IN A RAFT?
Our paddlerafts typically seats three tourists and two guides, this is because we run smaller rafts and are adamant about not to overloading them as the matter of safty and social responsibilty.
