What if the weather turns bad?

We do not go out in dangerous weather, i.e. electrical storms or very strong, gusty winds. In these instances, we choose another route, postpone, or if absolutely necessary, cancel the trip. We do not cancel trips for rainshowers.    

I cannot swim and I have never canoed before. Can I still go canoeing and
will I be safe and comfortable?

If this is your first time out on the water, we recommend you choose a novice level trip. Our pre-trip orientation will show you how to stay balanced while entering, paddling, and exiting your canoe. Also, the design of our canoes makes them very stable and unlikely to capsize.In the rare event of an upset, your life jacket (personal flotation device) will keep you afloat and we are always there to get you safely to shore.

Can I bring my kids?    

Children are welcome, however we recommend that they should be six years or older. A child may ride free when sitting in the middle of the canoe between two paddling adults.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we have comprehensive liability insurance. All clients must sign a waiver form prior to any trip. 

I have a medical condition or disability, can I still go canoeing?

Not all medical conditions or disabilities are obstacles to canoeing. We appreciate being apprised of this information and will do our best to accommodate your needs. Medications however, are solely your responsibility.
