FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS?
When are you open?
Depending on river and weather conditions, our season usually runs 7 days a week from May 1st through the end of October. Hours are 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. midweek, and 8 A.M. to 6 P.M. on weekends. Our hours do vary throughout the seasons and may change do to weather conditions.
Are reservations necessary?
Reservations are not mandatory, however many weekends are booked solid. It is good to have a reservation because it is $2.00 cheaper and you will not be left empty handed if we run out of equipment.
How do I make a reservation?
Call 1-800-487-2628 between the hours of 9 A.M. and 6 P.M. any day of the week. A credit card number will hold your reservation. DON'T WAIT! Good weather conditions may cause us to book up early.
What about cancellations?
Cancellations are accepted without penalty up until 48 hours before your trip. After that there are no refunds. In case of rain (at our location) your deposit will be refunded or you can reschedule. Once you are on the river there are no refunds.
Do we need to sign a waiver?
YES! Like any outdoor recreational activity there is risk involved and all participants must sign our waiver/release from liability form. A parent or legal guardian must sign for any minor (Scout Leaders, Pastors, Friends, Relatives, etc are not legal guardians). Click here to view our waiver.
What about rain?
Many people go rain or shine. Believe it or not, there's a real beauty to the river with the rain drops bouncing on the surface and the fog or mist hanging in the river valley. Also, wildlife sightings are more plentiful.
Can I picnic along the river?
By all means! The river is a National Recreation Area. There are beautiful islands, as well as shoreline spots, with sandy beaches great for a picnic. Also, some toilet facilities are available along the way. We provide trash bags and require that all of your trash be carried with you to the finish. PLEASE DON'T LITTER!
