• On average, 200 white water rafting guides die each year in the United States.
  • It is my understanding that the rafting guides must be rigorously trained for a few months and have lots of experience before becoming an actual guide. Unless, this is for more calmer waters that you're talking about? In Colorado and West Virginia where there are Class 5 rapids, and you need to be certified and put through lots of training as I mentioned. Class 5's are hard to get through and you really need to know what you're doing, it could be very unsafe being with an inexperienced guide. You need to know those trails and rapids backwards and forwards. If you're just going rafting then its a great experience! Its dangerous but you have a real sense of accomplishment when you complete those rapids, no matter how many times you flip your raft!!
