The only problem here is like many of the adventure activities available in Bali there is a mixture of reputable companies and companies that offer a substandard service that may be poorly organized and at worst using dangerous equipment with little safety procedure and training. However, do not let the presence of these cowboys in the market put you off as there are a number of highly reputable Bali White Water Rafting companies that offer a sterling service and a variety of different runs.
Usually, the day tour for Bali White Water Rafting will start with an early pick up from your hotel in a comfortable air-conditioned minibus or similar form of transport which will take you to the headquarters closest to the run you will be doing. Here you will be taught about the techniques employed in order to raft effectively and the safety procedures in place in order to prevent and minimize the severity of an accident. Accidents are rare in white water rafting particularly in Bali which is one of the reasons that most insurance companies cover White Water rafting as it is an activity in which few people make claims.

Usually, at some point, you will stop for lunch, this could be at the end of the run or maybe at a convenient spot halfway down on the longer runs. Lunch is always included and usually, there is a choice of what you would like. After lunch you will continue to don the run or depending on the tour you are on maybe proceed to another second run, either way most runs finish by ending up at a center where there are hot showers and changing facilities, as well as a riverside bar area where you can reflect and talk about the days rafting before the air-conditioned transport, will transport you back to your hotel.
