Packed with tiny islands, Fiji is known to offer some of the best spots for water sporting activity such as rafting. Along with the awesome spots, the water currents are gentle enough to give you a fun experience while rafting. If you’re a beginner and wish to try rafting, then these are some of the best tips you should always consider before stepping into the waters.

  1. Never Take your Helmet Off –One of the most important things you need to keep in mind is to never remove the helmet as long as you are in the water. Helmets are known to save you from hard impacts during the event of an accident.
  2. Never Take Off your Life Jacket – For those who aren’t good swimmers must always keep their life jackets on. Make sure you wear the correct size and fit along with clips and buckles to keep you safe at all times. Many stores in Fiji offer life jackets at a cheap rate on rental basis.
  3. Never Wear the Wrong Outfit – As rafting is a watersport activity, it is important to wear the correct outfit. Make sure you wear clothes that are made for rafting and nothing such as the likes of jeans or anything that is tight.
  4. Get a Few Basics Lessons – Before heading into the water, give yourself some time in learning about paddling and changing the direction. You can get yourself trained from an instructor or watch a few videos online.
