Our guides are trained to minimize risks, and, statistically, you’re safer on a raft than in your car. One state government found in an investigation that the injury rate for whitewater rafting is similar to that for bowling!

White Water Rafting Safety Tips for Beginners

Whether on vacation or just getting out of the house to cool off, white water rafting is a fun and invigorating outdoor activity and a great way to enjoy the outdoors no matter what your ability or experience level.

White water rafting is not just for the crazy hard core mountain people anymore. This popular sport is now more main stream than ever before. No pun intended. But there are a few steps that you and your family can take to insure that your white water experience is a good one that you will look back on your experience in a positive way for years to come.

Rafting is fun! By following a couple of safety rules it can be even more enjoyable. Here are 7 safety rules that will help you and your family to enjoy the great outdoor experience known as white water rafting.

1. Always wear a life jacket, or personal flotation device (PFD)

Although just because you wear a life jacket, it doesn’t mean it will save your life. It must be worn correctly. All buckles must be clipped and the jacket should be fitted snug to your body. The trick here is to have the jacket fitted so you can breathe yet the jacket should not be able to be pulled up over your head. Always have your professional guide fit your jacket. This will insure a perfect fit.

2. Be safe and comfortable. Wear the protective gear!

Always wear a helmet no matter what level of rafting you are participating in. Do not be over confident, always wear helmet period. No excuses. You will never know, when it will come handy.

3. Hold the paddle properly

Holding the paddle properly can be a huge safety concern. One hand should be at the base of the paddle on the shaft. The other hand should always be on the end of the shaft over the “T” grip. The “T” grip is made of hard plastic and can blacken eyes and knock out teeth. Keeping your hand over the “T” grip will keep control of the paddle and cushion the blow if it should happen. Ask your professional commercial guide for the proper technique.

4. Position yourself properly on the raft

You need to properly balance yourself in the raft. Most of the times, you should stay at the outer rim of the raft for balance, with your feet placed lightly under the air tube.

5. Get ready to swim, if in trouble

Even with best precautions, you may find yourself in the water so if you know how to swim, be ready to swim. Always look for guide’s cues in case you fall into the water.

6. Paddle together

Rafting is a group effort, do not try on paddling harder but work together as a team for smooth unison paddling. Front rafters need to watch each other and maintain the sync while everyone else has to follow their leads.

7. Follow your guide

This is the most important one. Your guide will always know better than you. They know the rivers that they run. They will tell you how and when to paddle, where to swim in case you fall out. So remain alert and always keep an ear open for your guide’s instructions.

If you follow these advises, you will certainly be safer. Our team has been conducting white water rafting in Bali safely for several years.
