About the Raft
About the raft used for the 11 Day Paddle Only Rafting Adventure
PADDLE BOATS: Our paddle rafts accommodate 6-8 passengers. There are usually 2-3 paddle boats per-trip, depending on the group size and demand. A licensed guide is on board each paddle boat, instructing participants on how to navigate the river currents and paddle through the rapids. Guests are encouraged to rotate between the rafts so they get acquainted with other passengers and the entire crew.
MOTOR RAFT: We will use one 37-foot motorized “S” rig on this trip to carry all the food supplies, camping equipment and personal gear.
If anyone in your party wishes to ride exclusively on the motor raft, please notify our office as far in advance as possible.
Camping and Dining on the 11 Day Paddle Only Rafting Adventure
Our meals consist of a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products. They are nutritious and delicious. Although we do not serve a “vegetarian” menu, we do provide enough fresh produce and non-meat items that most vegetarian dieters get along fine for the week they are on the river.
We are willing to try and help with special diet requests, but if your food options are very restrictive or require extra time or preparations we may not be able to accommodate you. Please give us a call to discuss your particular diet needs. We may suggest that you bring some of your own food items to supplement our menu.
