ABSOLUTELY More than 90% of deaths in boating are from drowning. And 80% of those drowning victims were not wearing a personal floatation device. It's important to wear a PFD! They protect against drowning and can help protect against hypothermia. Exposure to cold water is another major killer in boating accidents. We don't take chances.
All participants are required to wear LIFE JACKETS at all times while on the river!
