Rafting for Kids: Fascinating Facts

White water rafting started accidentally in the mid 1800s. It's said that Major John Wesley Powell, whilst exploring a river system, ran into the wild rapids of the Colorado River running through Glen Canyon in Utah and the Grand Canyon in Arizona. In spite of the expedition's fragile wooden boats and lack of safety equipment Powell made it through the 'white water' - a fitting testimony to the courage of the pioneers of the American West. And the first recorded incidence of this great sport. However the big surge in river running began 100 years later. In the 1950s World War II rubber pontoon bridges were used as the bases for massive rafts. Gradually these crafts evolved into rubber rafts of all sizes useful for running all types of rivers. The 1970s saw the sport grow dramatically, first in the USA and then wherever in the world there was an exciting stretch of river to run. Today, rigid safety standards among the operators ensure that this extremely exciting sport can be enjoyed in confidence.
