River Rafting Tour Tips - Maverick Helicoper Tours - Las Vegas

What Should I Wear on My Maverick Rafting Trip?


Below is a list of suggested items to wear or bring with you on your river rafting trip with Maverick Helicopters®. Keep in mind that the water temperature averages 50°F. Check the weather at the Grand Canyon before your trip since it varies throughout the year. Remember that the temperature at the West Rim is approximately 5-10°F cooler than in Las Vegas.
  • Quick-drying shorts. Nylon is the preferred fabric for shorts or pants. Jeans are not recommended since they can weigh you down and dry slowly. The key is to wear fabric that will dry quickly.
  • Cotton T-shirt. A T-shirt is lightweight so it will help you stay cool and keep the sun from burning you. Avoid heavier fabrics or shirts with long sleeves that will make it difficult to swim.
  • Hat with a brim. It can be a baseball cap, bucket hat or a sun hat with a wide brim. Just make sure that it provides your face with some shade from the sun.
  • Tennis shoes. Select a pair of old athletic shoes with laces or Velcro closure. Be sure that they fit securely and won’t slip off. Do not wear flip-flops or boots.
  • Sunglasses. Leave your designer frames at home so they don’t get damaged during the trip. We also suggest having a retention strap on your sunglasses so you don’t lose them.
  • Sunscreen. No matter what the time of day or type of weather, we always recommend using sunscreen with an SPF 30+ to protect your skin.
  • Swimsuit. Many people find it easier to wear a swimsuit as their undergarments in case they get wet or want to take a dip in the cool water.
Now that you have all the information to be prepared make your reservation today for the Maverick River Rafting tour.
