Knowing The Dangers Of The River Before You Raft
Near Bliss, Idaho (KMVT-TV) With this heat, rafting down the Snake River seems very tempting.
High Adventure River Tours took a group of willing participants on a ten-mile trip down the Snake River today.
But before you take an adventure, officials say you need to have a coast–guard approved lifejacket and also you need to know what to do if you're in trouble.
Wayne White with High Adventure River Tours shares with us some of the most common mistakes he sees.
White adds, "not wearing their life jacket, abusing alcohol on the river, taking the wrong equipment...you need to be very aware of your surroundings and what you do on the river."
White adds they conduct safety courses throughout the year and they have kids as young as three trying the sport.
