Rafting

Book Suggestions:

Rafting is a recreational activity utilizing a raft to navigate a river or other body of water.

Rafting can be a dangerous activity if the proper precautions are not taken. Below is a generally accepted classification system used to classify rivers for rafting and boating difficulty:

  • Class I - Easy. Fast moving water with riffles and small waves.
  • Class II Novice. Straightforward rapids with wide, clear channels.
  • Class III - Intermediate. Strong eddies and current, requiring skilled maneuvering.
  • Class IV - Advanced. Powerful but predictable rapids requiring precise boat handling in turbulent water.
  • Class V - Expert. Long, obstructed, or violent rapids which expose paddlers to above-average danger.
  • Class VI - Unrunnable.
