Safety Wear for Smoky Mountains White Water Rafting
Posted by dynamohi on February 9th, 2016
A Smoky Mountains white water rafting adventure is an adrenaline pumping activity that people of all ages can enjoy. If it is your first time to do this fun activity, ensure that it is enjoyable and memorable. This can only be achieved if you know how to prepare yourself and you also have an idea on what to expect. The number one thing that you should do is to make sure that you are appropriately dressed for the adventure.
In addition to safety wear, you should be swim-ready. You may find yourself in the water no matter the bracing. There will always be a guide to instruct you prior to reaching the rapid on the direction you will take in the event that you fall out and are too far from your raft. As soon as you get into the water, try to orient yourself as soon as you can and then look out for cues from your guide as he or she will not in any way direct you to danger. Swim as hard as you can and if you are unable to swim or are not too strong a swimmer, notify your guide prior to getting into the raft. Make sure that your feet are up to avoid getting them easily trapped between rocks lying along the river bed.
