WHAT TO EXPECT

WHAT TO WEAR

You may be wondering what to bring on your HANAZONO whitewater rafting adventure, and for good reason. You will be fitted out with a dry or wet suit but as we run rafting tours rain or shine you are likely to get wet, so it’s a good idea to be prepared no matter what kind of river tour you have planned.
We recommend that you wear loose fitting clothes, avoid skirts, jeans and any material that does not stretch. Please also keep in mind the river water can remain cold throughout the year so please ensure you bring an extra layer of clothing.

We recommend a short sleeved shirt and shorts in Mid Summer (mid July – late August).

We recommend a long sleeved shirt and long pants in Spring and Autumn.

If you wear glasses, we can provide you with a string so you don’t lose them on the river.
