Payment and Reservation Info
Reservations are not required, but highly recommended. We would hate for you to show up ready for a fun day on the water only to find all of our boats have been rented. Canoes and Kayaks are reserved by paying a $20 down-payment for groups of 5 or less and $50 for groups of 6 or more. This can be done by credit card over the phone, Paypal or credit card on our web site, or in person at our shop. A 100% refund is available with a cancellation 7 days prior to the start of your rental date. If cancelled within 7 days of the start of your rental date, a rental credit will be issued in your name good for the same paddling season, which can also be redeemed as a gift certificate. Once your paddle hits the water, there are no refunds or credits.
Paddling is considered a wilderness experience so we expect you to paddle in rain. Dress for the weather, and have rain gear available if it starts raining during your trip. We are not able to pick you up on the river early from your trip if it starts raining. We do sell rain gear and other necessities in our store if you need something or forget it.
If there is lightning, severe weather, or concern for safety on the day of your departure, we will not put you on the water. If there is any question about the weather or safety on the day of your departure, call us before coming to check the status of our trips and rentals.
