What Does River Rafting Classification Mean?

If you have heard a few times about the classification of the river rafting for different rivers and wondered what they were, here are a few explanations, which will be of help:

Class I – This indicates that the river does not have dangerous rapids and beginners may venture on it with confidence. If you are a beginner and/or are not very familiar with the waters try a river rafting adventure on this type of river at first.

Class II – This classification indicates some fast rapids and channels which will require basic skill to be able to sail through them safely; only pick a river rafting adventure through these waters after you have practiced a few times in Class I waters.

Class III – This classification indicates some difficult currents and white waters through which one will not make it easily without previous experience in such waters. If you have never been through a Class III river rafting and still would like to try it out, do not proceed without an experienced guide.

Class IV – When rafting is given this classifications waters are expected to have both high torrents and relaxing stretches, which will require some expertise to handle successfully. Choose a river rafting adventure in these waters only if you have previous rafting experience.

Class V – The Class V river rafting waters are to be tackled only by an expert in river rafting; the currents will be high as well as the difficult to maneuver through the channels. This type of river rafting adventure will provide a thrilling experience.

Class VI – These types of waters are only advised for the masters in rafting and those who are addicted to real life thrills. The waters are dangerous and will not forgive anyone who makes the slightest mistake.

A river rafting adventure can be as fun or as relaxing as you choose – start slow and you will get to the high, dangerous waters in no time; rafting is addictive of that I am positive, the more you practice the more you want.
