smoky mountain outdoors

We're thinking of rafting with this company in the beginning of August. We're a family of 4 with 2 children ages 9 and 11 and have only done "float trips". I'm a nervous mother and not a big fan of roller coasters. Do you think we (I) will be able to handle the upper pigeon raft trip with Smoky Mountain Outdoors Whitewater rafting. I see they get rave reviews.Thanks.

ummm, let's start with,"How well do you all swim?"

You ALL do swim, right?

OK, just checking...You're gonna get pitched around in that raft-only YOU know if you can handle that.

You're gonna get wet- how are you with that?

While I'm not familiar with the company, if I were you, I might give them a call and just feel them out on the subjects that concern you. If I got a sense that they were avoiding my concerns, or if they seemed simply uninformed, I might back away.

If the company in question has been around awhile, see if they have some sort of safety record they can point to. There's no reason that you cannot inquire as to how they handle these issues and concerns. If they seem hesitant to reassure you, I might reconsider my options.
