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.

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!

Group Leaders

Bring 15 other rafters and receive a free trip and a free 8 x 12 photo. (Group Leader must make reservation and payment for his/her group.)

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!
