Rapids

What types of rapids are on my trip?

The Lower Saluda River has generally calm water, with sections of Class I and Class II rapids.  A Class II rapid consists of waves 1 foot to 1.5 feet tall, with small whitewater crests on top of the wave.

The Congaree River has calm water for the entire length of the trip.  We oftentimes run this section of river when the water on the Saluda River is too high.
