Kayaking is another way to travel downstream. A few companies offer inflatable kayaks, or fiberglass kayaks for hire while some arrange for kayaks on their own.
A typical day in the river begins early in the morning when participants arrive at the site. Instructions on safety and emergency situation are given to participants before the event. Life vests and helmets must be worn by participants at all times during the trip. Meals are provided during the trip. Some packages also provide river equipment and camping equipment. The best time for rafting is from October through mid-December and March through early May. In winter hypothermia may be a hindrance to some.
