- How early do I need to book my Adventure?

We strictly limit numbers to maintain your quality of experience. If there is a date that you must have, booking two weeks in advance is a good guideline. To join us on short notice, please call for availability.

- Do I need to fill a raft?

Not at all. While the rafts can carry up to 8, we take reservations for as few as 2 people. 

- What do I need to bring?

Secure footwear (old running shoes, sandals with a heel-strap or water shoes. No flip flops or bare feet). Swimsuit or t-shirt and shorts, sunblock, eyeglass retainer and any medication you may require (including allergy medications). In cooler weather, a thermal top and rainwear (thermal top could be wool or synthetic such as polypropylene, polartec etc. Not cotton which has a negative thermal value when wet). A towel and change of clothes are recommended for after.
