before you head towards the covered bridge in Cornwall, CT....

before you go off an have all that fun that you know that you're going to have when you float down the Housatonic River in a raft, there are a couple of things that you should know.

listen carefully to one of the drivers, who will give you some recommendations for your trip. These safety guidelines will make your experience much more enjoyable.

Two pieces of equipment are very important.
You need a paddle (of course)
AND, you must wear a life vest. It is a safe thing to do and will let you focus on paddling and having fun.

This is Chris. He is one of our many drivers. The drivers perform many tasks other than simply driving the vans. They haul around all of the gear, maintain the shop, clean and repair the boats, and give a brief safety talk to each trip that they put out. Listen up and learn the names of many of the sections of the lovely Housatonic River.
