What are the chances of dying white water rafting?

In general, the more moving water there is on a river, the greater the chance for danger. At any given point in time, at least one person dies white-water rafting somewhere in the world. The real question is whether you are likely to die when you go rafting in your local area or when you go to exotic locations like the Grand Canyon or New Zealand. The statistics on this are impossible to answer, but your chances of dying on a rafting trip are probably about one in 3 million if you live in the U.S., and about one in 4 million if you live abroad.

What is whitewater rafting?

Whitewater rafting involves being on a small boat, usually made of rubber and filled with some air, and riding down a river. Whitewater rafting can be done on many different kinds of rivers- from gentle flat water to raging waterfalls where the danger is provided by the fact that you could get thrown out of your boat or hit by a rock.

What is best time to go whitewater rafting?

Whichever time you are available to come out. Our season runs from mid March through late November on the weekends and on holidays, depending on Mother Nature. We have a very flexible schedule at Pocono Whitewater Rafting because of our close proximity to New York City, Philadelphia , Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and Allentown/Bethlehem areas.

How do you stay in the raft when white water rafting?

Typically, the guides will instruct you on what to do in order to stay in the raft or on how to get back into the boat if you end up on the shoreline. We also provide life vests that have a belt around your middle that attaches to a strap that is attached to the boat.

How do you not fall off a raft?

Stay in the center of the boat and hold on. The most important things you can do to not fall out of your raft are:

  1. stay with your guide
  2. don’t stand up when you’re in faster water (we supply life vests that have a belt around you which is attached to the boat) and
  3. don’t try to grab on or hold on to branches, rocks, or other obstacles you might encounter.

What to know before going rafting?

The first thing you should know before going rafting is to know what the weather conditions are like because if there’s a chance of thunderstorms or it’s raining, we can’t go out. You should also make sure that you have the proper clothing- either by wearing clothes that dry quickly or others who don’t mind getting wet. Keep in mind that you will get wet! Depending on where you are coming from, make sure to brush up on your map reading skills because there are no street signs out in the middle of the Poconos.

What happens if you fall off white water rafting?

Every rafting trip is accompanied with a guide. If you fall out of your boat, all you have to do is grab onto the side and he can pull you back into the boat. In the worst case scenario, if you fall in and there isn’t a guide with that particular boat or you can’t get out by yourself, we have floating support and rescue boats on the water and rescuers standing by on shore. So don’t worry about it!
