Creature Craft Anti-Roll Whitewater Rafts

Jun 20, 2017

Don’t let their puffy exteriors and bright colors fool you; these inflatable rafts from Creature Craft aren’t waterborne bouncy castles. They’re actually a very clever and helpful means of making whitewater rafting both more accessible and a whole lot safer.

One of the biggest risks posed by whitewater rafting is the threat of flipping over. In seconds, a pleasant trip downstream can become a deadly fight for survival. To help mitigate that, these rafts incorporate a patented air-filled roll cage that is more likely to keep you upright and is actually quite simple to flip if you do happen to topple over. What’s most important, however, is that it will keep you from going completely upside-down and act like airbags, protecting occupants from river rocks and outcroppings. They’re offered in several sizes, are custom built to order here in the USA, require a $2,000 non-refundable deposit, and start at $4,995.

Purchase: $4,995+
