The whitewater of the Arkansas River provides excitement throughout the season. Normally the peak runoff is reached by mid-June. Some rapids become easier at high flows and others become more difficult. Some rapids may require portaging at certain levels. May and early June have cooler air temperatures but exhilarating whitewater. The rest of the season is usually warm and sunny with occasional late afternoon showers. We are guaranteed sufficient water through August.
Statistics prove that rafting is safer than golf or skiing, however, participating in an outdoor adventure does have inherent risks and hazards. We take every possible precaution throughout our operation to provide safe trips. You must take responsibility for following our instructions and guidelines. We reserve the right to consider potential participants physically unfit for this activity.
Every person on our trips will be issued a life jacket (personal flotation device) which is approved by the U.S. Coast Guard and designed specifically for whitewater rafting. We can accomodate up to a size 52 inch chest size. Non-swimmers are allowed to participate in whitewater rafting. If you are seriously overweight and can not perform a self-rescue by swimming to shore in the event you are out of the raft, you should consider not rafting. If a guide can not pull in an obese guest who swims, your safety may be jeopardized. You should take an active part in your own rescue. A detailed safety orientation is given before each trip. Swimming ability is required on our more advanced trips. The ability to swim may make you more comfortable in water if you happen to be out of the raft.
