Preparation AdviceWe suggest wearing a bathing suit under a comfortable coverup. As the river has rocks and uneven levels on the bottom, it is recommended that you wear shoes that will get soaked. A pair of water shoes or sneakers is recommended. You may wish to bring a second dry pair of shoes for afterwards. A towel, sunglasses, sunscreen and money for gratuities is also suggested.
