Lifejackets are required for those 12 and under. You can rent one from us for $5.00 or bring your own.

When the river is below 2.7ft we will be running the lower route. It takes about an hour and a half but you can shuttle as many times for free as you’d like, so you get your money’s worth. The water is too low through the middle section, and trust us…you would not enjoy it! This shorter run ensures that the water level is sufficient to make it down with minimal rock obstructions. When the river is above 2.7 ft we will be running the full run, which can take anywhere from an hour to 3 hours depending on water level. Check the release schedule on our homepage. On release dates we will be running the full run from 11:00am – 3:30pm when the water hits. Please Check our Facebook page for the most current updates.  Sometimes releases don’t happen on scheduled dates due to the Que water level.
