Rafting Safety

Your safety is our main concern and Rogue River Raft Trip guides do their utmost to be aware of each guest during the trip. Rogue River Raft Trips have been guiding guests down the Rogue River since 1967 and our safety record is impeccable. We require that you use our Type 5 Coast Guard-approved life vests whenever we are on the river. If you’re using an inflatable kayak, you must also wear a helmet.

Our guides are required to participate in a pre-season training trip each season. They are certified in First Aid and trained in river rescue techniques. All trips include first aid and safety supplies.

Minimum age for children

Note that for the safety and enjoyment of children and parents, day trip participants must be at least three years old and multi-day trip participants must be at least six years old.

Guests with medical conditions

Rafting down the lower Rogue River canyon is quite a relaxing activity with a wide range of engagement. You can expect some hiking on uneven surfaces, mostly on the first day. If you have a medical condition or limitation, including pregnancy, you should consult your physician and talk with our staff in detail about your medical needs.

Special dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice. Please notify your vacation specialist when you’re making your reservation so that the necessary arrangements can be made with the Morrison’s kitchen as well as your downriver lodges.

If you use a CPAP machine during the night, bring one with a battery pack. The downriver lodges only have generator power and they turn the generators off at 10 pm.
