White Water Rafting Classes The Classes Explained
If you are a newcomer to the sport of white water rafting and you know you want to take a trip, but you aren’t sure which one is right for you, check out the different class categories. Each trip is classified by Class I - VI and the higher the class, the harder the trip.
The Six Difficulty Classes
Class I Easy: These rapids are fast moving with small waves and few obstructions.
Class II Novice: Class II rapids require some maneuvering and have some medium sized waves and rocks as obstructions but are primarily straightforward and of little risk to swimmers.
Class III Intermediate: On a Class III trip you will find fast currents and moderate or irregular waves. Injuries during these trips are rare.
Class IV Advanced: These trips are complete with powerful, yet predictable, rapids that require proper boat handling.
Class V Expert: Long, violent rapids with obstructions are the norm on a Class V adventure. There is a higher risk of injury during this class of adventure.
Class VI Extreme and Exploratory Rapids: Almost never attempted, Class VI trips denote the most dangerous level of difficulty. Rescue may be impossible during a Class VI adventure.
