What to Bring
Do NOT Bring:
The guides may refuse participation without refund to anyone who, in their judgment, may pose a hazard to himself or others.
Your river guides are trained to standards that exceed state requirements. In addition to an experienced guide crew boasting a combined total of more than 500 years of whitewater paddling experience, these trips on the Lehigh River are also supported by State Park patrols throughout the 25 mile length of the Lehigh Gorge State Park. This uniquely convenient and nearly continuous vehicular access to the river provides a measure of safety and support not found in most wilderness areas.
Also, each river trip includes careful pre-trip guest instruction. Your trip leader will review paddling and safety tips, such as how to sit in your raft (on the perimeter tube with both legs inside), how to hold your paddle, how to steer, the importance of avoiding rowdy behavior (the leading contributor to river injuries), keeping your life jacket on and buckled at all times except lunch stop, how to self rescue in rapids, leaning towards big rocks, but away from little ones, never splashing with your paddles, remaining seated and paddling as a team when entering rapids, never standing up in fast moving water, and so on.
And finally, every trip is accompanied by first aid supplies and emergency rescue equipment. Your guides are proud and excited about the safety record they've compiled over more than 35 years, and welcome the opportunity to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
