Rafting the Arkansas with Echo Canyon River Expeditions will provide memories to last a lifetime. Now you can relive those memories over and over – all Echo Canyon rafts are equipped with GoPro cameras your guide controls! We’re the only rafting outfitter who offers a variety of photography and video packages that include on-board cameras to capture video footage of you and your family as you take on the rapids. We mount the cameras on the front of the raft and point the cameras towards you and the other crew members, so we get priceless reactions as waves come over the bow of the raft and splash everyone on board. Check out the slideshow below of what this unique vantage point offers. Please note that due to the nature of technology, we can make no guarantees the GoPro camera or our shore-side camera and/or media cards will not fail in rare instances causing a loss or photos and/or video.
how does it work?
Over the course of your rafting adventure on Bighorn Sheep Canyon, the Royal Gorge, or the Family Float section, your guide will record a variety of video clips from the rapids. But that’s not all, GoPro cameras are also know for their ability to capture incredible still photos. Just how much footage and photos will your guide capture? Just as every raft trip is different, so too will be your personal photo package. On average, you’ll get 3-4 videos per trip and about 100+ photos! It’s so much coverage we give you the digital files on a custom Echo Canyon raft-shaped 3.0 USB drive that holds 8 GB of data.
Sometimes the action captured on the GoPro has so much whitewater it’s tough to see the rafters. So Echo Canyon also has photographers who shoot photos of your raft from the shore – this gives you a different perspective shows you just how big that wave was! During the main summer rafting season, an Echo photographer will photograph your raft as it comes through at least one of the best rapids out there.
Technical glitch disclaimer: Please note that on rare occasions your raft’s GoPro camera or our shore-side photo camera and/or associated media card can potentially fail causing the loss of photos and/or video files. In these unusual instances refunds are only available up to the actual cost of the photo/video package pre-sale. No further refunds will be made available as the photo and video program is an added service offering.
