  • Do Go Prepared: Travel light. Do not bring along any valuables on the raft. Leave cell phones, cameras, keys and wallets locked inside the car. Those who are rafting during the hot summer months (May - September) should bring sunscreen, a hat or sunglasses. Those traveling overnight or for multiple days do need bring along extra items. For a full list of recommended items check their website.
  •  Don’t Wear Jeans: Truckee River Rafting does not recommend anyone to wear jeans while rafting because they become very heavy when wet. Also, they are hard to maneuver in while underwater and take a long time to dry. People should also avoid wearing cotton, which quickly absorbs and retains water. Wear clothing made of nylon, polyester, fleece or wool because they insulate heat and dry quickly.
  • Don’t Be Intimidated: White water rafting can sound both fun and scary at the same time. For example, if one does a Google search on “white water rafting,” the pictures may seem too intense to some. But White Water Rafting Tahoe provides a safe and fun atmosphere for everyone. Children as young as 5-years-old can come along for the ride. Everyone is fully equipped with a helmet and life vest. Experienced guides are there in the raft with you to address any concerns and provide a safe and memorable ride. Do no be intimidated by the pictures.
