6- I must be a good swimmer
Swimming is for the game of the world of swimming pools.
The first plan is to always stay on the boat, but if you find yourself having an off-the-boat experience while rafting, good technique is more of an orchestrated float than swimming. The orchestrated part will be explained to you by your guides when you get to the river, while the floating part is much easier than you might think. After all, you will literally be wearing a properly strapped personal flotation device (PFD) at all times on the river, in case you have a personal flotation experience. Experiences of involuntary personal float are not very common, but if they do, you will need to feel comfortable making active movements in the water to propel yourself to a safer location (i.e. say towards the boat or the shore). Either way, you won't have to worry about whether you will sink or float if you wear your PFD correctly.
