Safety

Your safety and comfort are our utmost concern. Our guides are mature, skilled professionals, certified in first aid and CPR. All trips are equipped with first aid kits and river rescue equipment. Safety procedures will be explained in detail prior to and during the trip. Because of the inherent risks involved with any outdoor activity, we are required to have you sign an acknowledgment of risk and release of liability before your trip.

Food

Half-day trips include a light snack. A buffet lunch is served on day trips. On multi-day trips we provide all meals, from lunch the first day through lunch the last day. We serve fresh, wholesome food, organic when available. We make every effort to accommodate your needs and preferences; let us know if you are on a special diet or have food allergies. Fresh drinking water is available at all times.

Inflatable Kayaks

Our self-bailing inflatable kayaks are one-person rafts, very stable, easy to paddle and immense fun. At safe water levels, we bring a few to share on our class II and III runs. You may have exclusive use of a kayak for $10/day.

If you would like to purchase some of your own river gear, go to NRS.
