Whitewater Rafting Ottawa River Double the Fun What you should bring with you for the Double the Fun

For all adventure activities, all your mandatory safety equipment is provided for you. Therefore, all you need to bring with you are some personal items to help make your day even more enjoyable. We recommend that you bring a pair of shoes or sandals to wear on the river (they will get wet!), your swimsuit and/or shorts, sunscreen, water bottle, towel and a change of clothes. If you are joining us during the early spring (April & May), we highly recommend that you bring an extra fleece or wool sweater, fleece socks and running shoes (versus sandals) for extra thermal layering under your wetsuit.

This package includes camping as your accommodation. You will need to bring with you your tent, sleeping bag and pad. If you do not have these items readily available, we recommend that you consider upgrading to the hostel (shared indoor accommodation) for only $15/night. Rental tents are also available for only $10/night and are suitable for 2 people.
