The Rafts

White Water Rafting North West Adventure, Sligo Ireland!

The rafts are made of toughened  durable Polyurethane Plastic.  They have several compartments for air, so in the unlikely event that one should burst all the others stay up.  The floor is inflatable too.  It is self bailing.  They are a beautiful boat built for Fun!

All our instructors are in house trained over one year.  We are passionate about what we do and it shows.  We are lucky to have this fabulous natural river on our door step. During the rainy season you can’t get us off the river.  If we are not in rafts or kayaks we’ll be in canoes!  We’re always messing about on the river!  You could call us ‘River Rats’!
