|What is White Water Rafting?
White water rafting is negotiating
river rapids and obstacles in an inflatable rubber boat with
a team of up to eight people and a river guide. Rivers are
graded from easy to near-impossible according to their size,
the intensity of their rapids and the difficulties that may
affect rescue attempts.
