Is whitewater rafting dangerous?
Our experience has taught us that Grand Canyon rafting trips are a safe and fun vacation. However, you should be aware of the risks involved, just like with any outdoor activity.
While going through the rapids, you will have to hold on, but most of the rapids last less than a minute. The Colorado River through Grand Canyon is a pool-drop water system, which means there is plenty of flat water between each rapid. Just remember, our first priority is your safety.
As there are risks involved, each guest will be required to sign an Acknowledgement of Risk form prior to their rafting trip. Grand Canyon Whitewater will send you a copy of the form upon booking or you may request to see it ahead of time. Below you can see an example of the form.
