FAQ's

Do I need experience for this trip?
Nope! Beginners join trips all the time, and a safety orientation is included at the beginning of every trip.

What does "Class II and III" mean?
The class refers to the size and difficulty of rapids. For class II and III rapids, guests can expect medium to large waves that pack a splash! 

What safety precautions are in place?
All guides hold full certifications for Swiftwater Rescue, First Aid/CPR, and Trip Leaders are required to hold EMT certifications.

Is the river all rapids?
There is plenty of flatwater between rapids to relax and swim. Rapids only occur when elevation changes on the course of the river. Additionally, water flow will impact the size of rapids during the course of the year.

Are photos of my trip available?
Yes! DVK partners with Whitewater Photography to provide photos of all Arkansas River adventures. These will be available after your trip through our website.
