- Class 3: They pose moderate difficulty. One can see waves reaching as high as one meter. Visibility range is limited.
- Class 4: They involve very challenging and huge rapids. One has difficulty predicting the beginning and end of falls. It is a class full of combative passages and challenging obstacles.
- Class 5: They contain extremely difficult, high flow rate and currents, dangerous rocks, steep slopes, consecutive falls, limited passages in progress. They are not recommended for amateur rafting people.
