Packing for Water Sports
Preparing for your Maine White Water Rafting Adventure
Perhaps one of the most often asked and hardest to answer question is "What do we bring"? Here's a small list of essential items to bring on your whitewater rafting or kayaking trip at Penobscot Adventures.
- A warm change of clothes
- rain gear
- swimming shorts
- swim suit
- sunglasses (with croakies)
- a waterproof camera
- some shoes you can get wet (We suggest either tennis shoes, or a river sandal (Tevas, Chacos.)
- under armor, fleece, or poly-pro
On the spring and fall rafting 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 $12.00, a half is $7.00, and booties are $6.00. Bring wool socks for extra warmth.
Please don't forget to bring a change of dry clothing and footwear for your trip home!
