Additional Trip Information

What to Bring:

For every trip you need:

  • Footwear – sandals w/ toe and ankle straps, water shoes, sneakers (flip-flops not recommended and not allowed on more aggressive trips)
  • Bathing suit or shorts
  • Sunscreen
  • Towel
  • Change of clothes and shoes for after trip
  • If you wish to bring a water bottle, please have a way to attach the bottle to the raft (small carabiner is best)

Items for spring and fall & cool or rainy days:

***Avoid cotton clothing-it cools the body when wet!

  • For feet: wool or fleece socks. Very important in spring!
  • For torso and legs: performance wear (Under Armour, Dri-Fit), wool, fleece, capilene, polypropylene
  • Outer layer: wind jacket and pants are great for shedding water and can be worn over a wetsuit or fleece

Clean, comfortable wetsuits and wetsuit boots will always be available for rent. Fleece and synthetics are extra warm under wetsuits and wetsuit boots. Wind jackets and pants can be worn over wetsuits to shed water and add warmth.

Our Vermont base houses a store where you may purchase pictures of your trip in additions to a selection of apparel and souvenirs.

Always bring medications which you may need on the river i.e. asthma inhaler, bee sting kit, etc.
