To insure you get the float you desire on weekends, advance reservations are required.

Due to variations in water levels that we have no control over, we cannot always guarantee the amount of time your float will take. If your float is faster than you expected, we cannot float you again without an additional charge.

Please note there will be a $25 damage deposit on each canoe and kayak $75 for rafts that will be refunded at the end of your float trip when all items are returned undamaged.

Please note there will be a $10 deposit on each float or cooler tube that will be refunded at the end of your float trip when your tube is returned undamaged.
