White Water Rafting is an exhilarating activity to undertake and will definitely create great memories of family days out. During the course of your white water rafting session you will get to travel down a 4mile stretch of river ranging in grade from 2 - 4. The biggest drop on the section graded at class 4 is the last drop on the session. You will be guided down the river by a fully qualified white water raft guide and they will make sure that your session is tailored to the needs of your family. There are great places to play on your way down the river and plenty of fun for kids and adults alike. Our guides will make sure you know where you can push the kids in too if you really want to!
Putting in at the top of the river leaves a rafting journey of 4 miles in front of you. It's a steep, rocky course and the river is classed as a grade 2/4. (This is a Worldwide accepted rating that grades the technical difficulty of rapids on a river. Grade 1 is gentle flowing water, and grade 6 is considered commercially un-runnable).
You will put onto the river after a full safety brief with your guides.
The river gradually builds through rapids like "Long left" and "Bouncing Rock" on it's way towards Bala.
You'll pay a visit to "Dump Truck Eddy" and your trip will culminate with a descent of "Bala Mill Falls" the biggest drop on the entire river!

Excellent introduction to whitewater rafting for the family Great instructors, beautiful scenery, fun couple of hours. The Get Wet team are highly accommodating and extremely professional and helpful. Thank you particularly to Badger and Nick, who couldn’t have done a better job.
Amazing day had by all! Went white water rafting with the family and partners for my 30th, we had a few nervous ones in the group but they where made to feel safe and had the best time. Couldn't recommend this more, the instructors were friendly and where able to have a laugh our instructor PJ was the best :) . We loved jumping off the boat and floating down river at certain areas (this is optional not forced). The whole team at get wet are lovely we will definitely be back!
