River tubing is not for some people. It is not a man made amusement park ride.
Read all of the information signs, ask questions, and be sure you want to partake in this activity before you rent the equipment.
Once you rent the equipment there are no refunds and you must return the equipment properly. You will be charged for equipment lost, damaged, or not properly returned.
Once you start you must get to the designated take out to get the bus ride back. There is no other place to get out or way to get back.
This is not a man made amusement park ride where you are automatically harnessed and secured.
This is a rental operation where you rent an inner tube, a P.F.D., and a bus ride back.
We do not control the river or any part of it. You are on your own. You must securely fasten you own P.F.D. and safely maneuver your own tube. If you need instructions you must ask before you enter the river.
The river is rough! It contains class 1, 2, & 3 rapids, water, rocks, trees, and other obstacles. You can be injured! You can fall out of your tube! (You are on your own to get back to it.)
The river is unattended! There is a assistant at the 2nd rapid only. Their purpose is to assist you if your feet get stuck in the rocks and you are trapped under water. (This can happen if you try to stand up in the rapids; for your safety, Do Not try to stand up in the river.) The assistant cannot leave their post, retrieve tubes, or assist people who have fallen out of their tubes. They must maintain their focus for foot entrapments in the rapids.
If you have an emergency along the river you are on your own to get notification to the bus at the take out, the office at the start, or the assistant at the 2nd rapid so we can notify “911” of your situation.
The tubes are not puncture proof. Popped tubes must be returned to get another one.
We do not control the weather. It can change at any time. It is your choice to rent or not; given the weather conditions during the duration of your ride.
