Safety and Liability
Before your river trek begins, we give a brief safety talk. This not only is a precautionary safety measure, but lets you in on some river insights from the river guides' point of view. All guides are trained in first aid, CPR, and water rescue. Of course, Coast Guard approved life jackets and all safety equipment are provided.
Whitewater rafting is a physical sport which involves inherent risks, so we do everything possible to insure a safe trip. Because of the nature of outdoor recreational sports, we do not accept responsibility for personal safety and we are not liable for lost or damaged personal items. All rafters are required to sign a Waiver of Liability and Risk Assumption.
Magic Falls Rafting reserves the right to change the trip itinerary should water conditions create flows too high or too low for safety.
What to Wear
For your comfort, you should bring a bathing suit, sneakers, shorts, sweater, hat, windbreaker, or quick-drying nylon clothing. No cotton please!
On the spring and fall trips we require that you wear a wetsuit while on the river. You are welcome to rent one of our suits or bring one of your own. Rental of a full suit is $25.00, and booties are $8.00. Bring wool socks.
Please don't forget to bring a change of dry clothing and footwear for your trip home!
I have been rafting twice with Magic Falls. The owner Dave has been our guide both trips! He's left a great impression on my friends and me. This company is exceptional. They make you feel right at home and the guides have great senses of humor. The staff are well trained and the meal you get at the end of the trip is great! We are 100% loyal to Magic Dave's White Water Rafting Company!

"Just wanted to let you know that my friends and I had such a wonderful weekend at your place, they want to go back in August! It’s sounding like our group will be even bigger because word-of-mouth has caused more interest. Your team made us feel welcome and safe. Kudos to Sean for leading the way...and for plucking me out of the river twice!!!
