What is RAFT SUPPORT CANOEING?
On more challenging river trips, we bring along a raft to carry heavy gear and act as a safety boat while canoeists are running rapids. Without the heavier gear, canoes are more manoeuverable and ride higher in the water. Another benefit of raft support is that canoeists are welcome to paddle the sections of river they feel comfortable with and ride in the raft at other times. If anyone wants to join the trip but not canoe, they can ride in a raft or join a paddle rafting crew.
