For marginal weather...

  • Wool or synthetic sweater (polar fleece)
  • Long underwear (synthetic or silk)
  • Warm hat
  • Wetsuits are welcome if you have your own

Please avoid wearing cotton for river clothing, as it makes you colder when wet. Quick dry clothing such as non-cotton shorts, T-shirts, or bathing suits are recommended.

If you wish to bring a camera it is recommended that you purchase a single-use waterproof disposable camera. Personal cameras are not recommended on the Rio Grande because of the many rapids. Remember that every river trip is captured by professional photographers.
