This is sport similar to kayaking except that it is done in a larger boat with more people. Many people travel down rivers and rapids propelling themselves by using paddles or oars. A training coarse on rafting is required before one can go on a serious expedition.
There are two basic kinds of whitewater rafts: oar boats and paddle boats. In an oar boat, rafters ride in the boat while the guide, sitting in the center of the boat and facing forward, maneuvers the raft through the rapids with two long oars. No special skill or knowledge is required of the passengers. In a paddle boat, passengers become participants. Paddling as a team under the command of the guide, each person helps to steer and move the boat.
