  • I have always wore shorts, water shoes and a sleeveless shirt. I might wear a long sleeve over it. I would not raft in jeans but I am sure those who do. Most of all have fun and be safe :)

  • Cold water....wet suit if possible. Please don't forget the life jacket. A helmet would also be nice. The current can be quite unforgiving and so can the rocks beneath the water.

  • I did not post the helmet and life jacket because most rafting companies have them, are you rafting with a company or going out without company?

    You might be able to rent a wetsuit from of of the companies.

  • we just went last weekend and wore everything the rafting people suggested. i'm glad we did! ask them what they recommend and rent from them the things they have available.

  • I was going to say wetsuit. It's the only thing that will protect you from the water.

  • I was going to say a wetsuit, too - like when you go scuba diving.
    Don't forget your helmet, life jacket, and lightweight fingerless gloves to protect your knuckles yet allow your fingers the mobility to move. There are even whole hand gloves that cover the fingers that have grippers to help hold onto the oar. Everyone has their personal preferences.
    Have fun!
