White Water Rafting Adventure Day
Fancy the excitement of shooting the white water rapids in some of Perthshire's stunning rivers in our specialised white water rafts? This is a fun activity from start to finish and guarantees to thrill and excite all our adventurers! Raft sessions range from a fast paced and exhilarating ride on grade 3-4 rivers to a more relaxed trip on grade 2-3 on the Tay. Before running the rapids, you will be kitted out in all safety equipment required and wetsuits then our highly experienced and qualified raft guide from Ancrum Outdoor Centre will brief you on rafting techniques and have you practice safety drills in preparation for your rafting adventure.
For your Adventure Day with Ancrum, you will meet us at our base at Ancrum Outdoor Centre for 9am start. A Parent or Guardian must attend the Centre to complete registration process and confirm emergency information is correct at drop off time and inform admin team of pick up arrangements for 5pm. Our instructors will greet you, explain what is going to happen and then get you kitted out for your day of adventure. They will provide you with a wetsuit, wet gloves, wet boots, wet socks, buoyancy aid and privacy changing gown. You will get a yaksak bag to keep your clothes, towel and packed lunch in, don’t forget to bring plenty to drink. When ready to leave the Centre, your group will head off in one of our mini buses to your chosen adventure destination. If you are not a good traveller please make sure the instructor is informed. Sometimes at the end of an activity, the instructors may stop off at a shop / café for a drink or ice cream prior to the journey back to the Centre, therefore, if you want to buy anything bring a pound or two, remember this is optional!
