An oar and paddle raft.
The guide manoeuvres with two long oars as guests paddle.
Everyone, including the guide, uses paddles to work together as a team in maneuvering the raft.
These rafts are equipped with an outboard motor, so the guide can power steer through rapids.
One or two guests use traditional double-bladed paddles in these very stable inflatable boats.
