RIVER TRIPS


River trips are not guided. After signing up for the trip of your choice we will go over basic safety procedures, review your river trip with you, and provide basic paddling instructions for novice paddlers. The majority of our trips start up river and float back to our base, so take your time and finish at your leisure. We do not have set departure times either, we go when you are ready. We like to say we run on your schedule and don’t make you run on ours.

So, when you’re ready, you will be transported to the launch site of your trip and cast forth upon the waters. Please note: the time indicated for each trip is the approximate paddle time for canoes or kayaks paddling at a steady but leisurely pace under normal river conditions. If you are fishing, just floating, or the river is low then trips will of course take longer. We find it’s better to go a little too short than a little to far, so try not to be overly ambitious when selecting the length of you float.

Canoes and kayaks are almost twice as fast as rafts, and rafts are swifter than tubes. Consequently, suggested raft routes are shorter. Also, the tube float is normally fixed at 3 miles taking about 3 hours. All floats finish back at our base unless otherwise indicated.
