Rafting equipment, rigging, reading water, and basic maneuvers are some of the skills that will be covered. Additional topics include planning and packing for multi-day raft trips or family floats. Rafts and gear provided for group courses. Private instruction– in our raft or yours– available any day, May 1- September 30.
