all the equipment you need for your
Whitewater Rafting Experience
Echo uses only self-bailing high performance rafts, Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices (life jackets), helmets (for class IV-V river sections) and rescue equipment. All overnight guests will be provided with dry bags if needed and all equipment is maintained for performance.
Choose between the more relaxed atmosphere of a professionally guided oar raft or the challenge of paddling along with others under the leadership of your guide in a paddle raft. We can develop a Colorado whitewater rafting trip just for YOU! Visit our FAQ page to find answers to frequently asked questions about whitewater rafting trips.
What Is The Difference Between A Paddle Boat And An Oar Boat?
If you are in good health and would like to participate, paddle rafting is the choice for you. Each person has a paddle in their hand and the guide will give instructions and commands of what to do. You will need to continue to paddle in the rapids. If you prefer to hold on and enjoy the ride and mountain scenery, the oar rigged raft is for you. It is recommended that children, age 12 and under, ride in an oar raft with a parent or legal guardian. All oar boats will have several paddles available so guests and children can participate if they choose while the guide controls the raft with his/her oars.
