Advanced reservations are required.  There are times we can accommodate walk-ons, but this is rare.  The only way to guarantee you spots is with a pre-paid reservation.  If your reservation is made more than 3 weeks prior to your date of play, a $10 per person deposit is required at the time of booking, with the remaining balance due 3 weeks prior to the date of play. Any bookings within 3 weeks of the date of play require payment in full at the time of booking.

Group Gratuity Policy

Organized groups of 24 or more participants will be subject to a $1 per person prepaid gratuity for their Guides .  Our Guides work very hard especially when taking a large Youth or Adult Group down the river.  Some groups plan on tipping their guides while many camps, schools, & other large groups don’t provide the chaperones they send with any means of payment.  This ensures the organization planning the outing is prepared to give a gratuity.  If after your trip you feel your Guides did not earn this gratuity please inform our management.
