I, the undersigned, hereby accept that river rafting, river bugging, river duckies, canyoning, paintball, quad biking, mountain biking and abseiling, as with all adventurous activites, have inherent risks. I understand there is a chance I may fall into cold, moving water during water-based activities and may be out of my depth. I also acknowledge that I am confident in water and have made staff at Splash White Water Rafting fully aware of any medical conditions or medical history that may inhibit me or impair my ability to take part in any adventure activities, including (but not limited to) those listed above. I hereby agree to listen and follow any instructions given to me by the Splash White Water Rafting staff.
