About the rafting industry in Morocco. Morocco has neither recognized rafting standards nor quality-control measures in place to regulate how companies hire their guides or operate their tours. For safety reasons it's a must to have world-class guides, world-class experience, and world-class standards. We believe that anyone considering a rafting trip in Morocco should have access to the information they need to make informed decisions, and we encourage you to ask questions of any operator, including us, before booking your trip.
1. Our commitment to international standards
We are an active member of the International Rafting Federation and the world's whitewater community. In an environment where local standards are virtually non-existent, we work with world leaders to bring home the highest standards in the industry.
How this sets us apart:
− Berber Rafting is a International Rafting Federation (IRF) recognized company.
− All of our guides and safety kayakers hold International Rafting Federation certification.
2. Our focus on quality
You will not find a team of more highly experienced, trained, or certified river guides in Morocco, we promise you that. Every one of our Trip Leaders, Guides, and Safety Kayakers hold the following certifications:
– International Rafting Federation (IRF) Award.
– First Aid or higher.
– Whitewater Rescue 3 Technician Pro.
- BPJEPS canoë-kayak, rafting.
- Adhérent syndicat national des guides professionnels de canoë-kayak et disciplines associées (rafting)
- Déclaré ministère jeunesse et sport num 07416ED0180 (Carte professionnelle)
We use Aquadesign products as our equipment. The company remains leader of the market of the raft in France like in European countries such as Italy, Spain or Portugal.
We are a small operation with a relatively light capacity on our trips and a comfortable daily schedule. This means we are always able to deliver the personal service we like, have low guest-to-guide ratios, and take the time required to properly run the best trips. We begin each trip by thoroughly preparing everyone for the river so as to ensure a successful and enjoyable paddling experience for all.
The reality to all this is that quality costs. There is no way around it.
Berber Rafting Adventures have full public liability insurance. It is the nature of adventurous activities that there will always be some degree of risk. Our insurance does not cover you for inherent risks or client negligence. Whilst not mandatory you may wish to arrange your own personal injury insurance or alternatively contact us for help in arranging cover. For your own safety it is imperative that you abide by the decisions of our Instructors/Guide. We reserve the right to make changes to planned routes and venues as a result of adverse or impending conditions.
4. We are owned and operated by our guides.
This makes us unique in Morocco. The reason we run rafting trips is because we love to paddle whitewater and share river experiences with both old and new friends. Our trips are designed to provide the highest quality experience and spreading our passion for our local rivers and our love for the Berbers. We like to make this evident from the moment our guests meet us and experience the Amazigh hospitality at our Gite, until they hug us goodbye at the end of the day and drive away waving.
