Safety drifting instructions

Drifting is a kind of self-service travel activity that you blend with the natural environment. It is necessary to know about drifting and safety instructions.

Preparations before drifting

1. On board, mobile phones, cameras, documents and cash... Don't bring anything afraid of water.

2. On board the ship, first read the drifting instructions carefully, listen to the arrangement of the staff and wear life jackets (please drifting tourists wear life jackets safely under the guidance of the staff before drifting, do not carelessly, prevent accidental fall of life jackets, let life jackets give full play to the role of safety protection), and find safety ropes;

3. Parents'Notes: Too young children should not drift, nor can they swim. The rivers in the mountains are very complicated, and there are rapids and dangerous beaches everywhere. It is dangerous for the innocent children to move around on the boat.

Drifting Safety Common Sense

1. Don't take dangerous actions when drifting: Generally speaking, drifting reaches are relatively safe. As long as you don't take the initiative to get off the boat, fight with each other, catch floating objects in the water and grass, trees and rocks on the shore, the raft will not turn over. Once the boat capsized, hold your breath and be careful not to choke the water, because you are wearing a life jacket.

2. When drifting, we should obey the instructions of the Shipman and not move randomly. We should grasp the safety rope, tighten our feet and tilt our body towards the center of the hull.

3. Pay attention to the arrows and slogans along the way during the drifting process. They can help you find the main waterway and alert you to the falling area in advance. In downstream rapids, the boat should be balanced with the hull, hold the handrail strap inside the hull, and lean back slightly. The two guarantees the hull to be balanced and parallel to the river, and go downstream.

4. When the ship is stuck, it can't stand up in a hurry. It should keep the boat stable and find a good foothold to stand up, so as to ensure that it can't be taken down by the boat.


1. During the period of excessive River flow, no unit or individual shall be allowed to drift, so as to ensure the safety of tourists and equipment.

2. Tourists who suffer from hypertension, heart disease, pregnant women, drunkenness, children under the age of 14 and the elderly are not suitable to participate in drifting, and refuse to participate in drifting.

3. We have the right to adjust and cancel lines for weather or other safety reasons. On the premise of ensuring safety, this activity is as rain-storm-free as possible.
