White water rafting is based on rivers near Ubud. It is fairly tame and shallow. Best time is the wet season. The trip goes through beautiful narrow gorges with some rapids and calm sections.
You can organize it through a tour agency or directly with the company. The prices include transport to and from your hotel, all equipment, insurance, instructions, shower at end with towel and lunch.
Bring swimming gear, thongs and shirt. You can leave your gear with your driver who will meet you at the end. The guide has a waterproof bag for your camera.
I usually book in Ubud at any tour agency but you can book anywhere.
It is fairly safe for children. Both of mine have done it since they were 7 years old.
