The Recreational Rafting Committee is tasked with advancing Article 5, Section 12 of the Bylaws:
Encourage the development of recreational rafting as a contribution to a healthy lifestyle for all ages and abilities.
Recreational Rafting is a water based activity available to everyone. We share many articles on our social media and website for those wanting to take up the thrills of white water rafting, to those looking for peaceful trips on quiet rivers where you can just be as one with nature.
The IRF’s Guide Training & Education (GTE) system is the only globally recognised raft guide certification.
You can find a rafting tour operator with IRF certified guides here.
Besides our Para Raft Racing, there are many operators in the rafting world who are making rafting more and more accessible for those less abled so they too can get into rafts and enjoy the thrill of rafting. We will soon be highlighting what operators can do to improve the accessibility they offer, what others are doing towards this accessibility and help make it easier to find operators who cater for para rafting.
