Waterproof Binoculars for Incredible Viewing
To fully immerse yourself in the beauty around you as you are white water rafting, waterproof binoculars are great.

Make sure to get binoculars with an anti-reflective coating for a clear picture, and a neck strap and rubber grips help ensure you don’t lose your binoculars overboard.
A Waterproof First Aid Kit for Injuries
You don’t have to worry about bringing a waterproof first aid kit when you go whitewater rafting with Crab Apple, but this is still a great gadget. It is extremely compact, so it will fit in your bag with no problem, and it is completely airtight, so you don’t have to worry about the contents being ruined during a big splash. There are a variety of kits available, but most of them include the basics, such as an antiseptic towelette, a variety of bandages, sterile gauze, alcohol prep pads, and sting relief pads.
A Filter Straw for Thirst Quenching
Obviously, when you are white water rafting, you are surrounded by water; however, most of the water is unsafe to drink. That is, unless you have the LifeStraw in tow. This simple-yet-genius white water rafting gadget allows you to drink any water you have access to without a worry. It is an advanced filter that works just like a straw. Dip it into the water and suck on the other end, and you have a limitless supply of safe water to quench your thirst. The best part is, it doesn’t require any batteries or electricity and it can filter 1,000 liters of water before needing to be replaced.
As you prepare for your next white water rafting trip with Crab Apple, make sure to remember the essentials, of course, but also keep these awesome white water rafting gadgets in mind.
