The ones that have died doing this, have gone out on their own . This is a guided river raft trip with very well trained personnel it is very safe, as long as you follow the instructions of your guide.

There is a parking lot right where you check in. You leave your car, they drive you to the river in a bus then back to your car when the trip is over. And they will hold your car keys at the desk while you’re on the river.
