Lehigh River Raft Guides & Safety

At the Lehigh River, we've had the pleasure of serving well over a million and a half guests since our first guided rafting trips in 1975.  Your safety on the river has always been our highest priority, and our unparalleled record over the past three and a half decades demonstrates the effectiveness and value of a guide training program that serves as a model for others in our industry.

Be sure to watch our Lehigh River Safety Video.  And encourage your youngsters to take our Whitewater Safety Quiz!

At Whitewater Challengers, river guides are trained to standards that exceed state requirements.  In addition to an experienced guide crew boasting a combined total of more than 500 years of whitewater paddling experience, our trips on the Lehigh River are also supported by State Park patrols throughout the 25 mile length of the Lehigh Gorge State Park.  This uniquely convenient and nearly continuous vehicular access to the river provides a measure of safety and support not found in most wilderness areas.

Also, each of our river trips includes careful pre-trip instruction for our guests.  Your trip leader will review paddling and safety tips, such as how to sit in your raft (on the perimeter tube with both legs inside), how to hold your paddle, how to steer, the importance of avoiding rowdy behavior (the leading contributor to river injuries), keeping your life jacket on and buckled at all times except lunch stop, how to self rescue in rapids, leaning towards big rocks, but away from little ones, never splashing with your paddles, remaining seated and paddling as a team when entering rapids, never standing up in fast moving water, and so on.

And finally, every trip is accompanied by first aid supplies and emergency rescue equipment.  We remain proud and excited about the safety record we've compiled since 1975, and we welcome the opportunity to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
