What To Bring When White Water Rafting On the American River

Unlike a simple day out at the beach, white water rafting the American River requires a little information in order to be prepared adequately for the trip. It should never be assumed that things such as life vests and paddles will be included in the trip details, as some companies will charge for the rental of these once a person arrives at the start of the route. It is normal for more reputable companies to include them, but this should be checked ahead of time.
