    I’m wondering the same. I notice this is an old post. Did you end up doing it???

    I did this tour in September of 2010. It was a fantastic trip! I did the white water rafting option and it was well worth it! I definitely recommend it. It is completely safe and it isn’t extreme at all. I was nervous as well, seeing as I am a petite girl and was afraid of falling out, but the instructors teach you everything there is to know and the river isn’t that rough. The route they take you is beginner level and nothing extreme as you may have seen on television or elsewhere.

    Hi Meli26! What do you recommend to wear for this optional?

    You just wear your regular clothes as they will give you proper wet suits and shoes to change into.
