Tips To Remember For White Water Rafting

1. Prepare for the elements

Colorado’s weather can be unpredictable, so make sure you’re ready for nearly every weather condition. 


2. Dress to swim

Even if you don’t fall out of the boat, you’ll have a chance to hop out and cool off in the pristine waters of Clear Creek. Cotton gets very cold when it gets wet, so make sure to wear quick-drying clothing made of synthetic materials like polyester.


3. Leave the valuables behind

We’re telling you, you don’t need to bring your Gucci sunglasses on the raft. Instead, bring cheap sunglasses that you would be ok losing, as Clear Creek rafting can be unpredictable. 

The same goes for expensive hats. Jewelry should never be brought on the boat. Not only do you not need it on the water, but it poses a serious safety hazard if you were to fall in the water.


4. Hydrate and Fuel

Rafting is a work out, and the sun and elevation can effect everyone differently, so be sure to hydrate and fuel up before-hand.  We don’t stop for snacks and discourage generating potential trash on the river. Full day trips do offer a riverside lunch

And don’t forget to share with your guides!


5.Listen to your guide

Always listen to your guides! They have extensive medical and safety training, and their number one priority is guest safety. Help them do their job! Not only will you have a better experience, but you’ll have a better chance of staying in the boat too.
