While we would like for everyone to be able to enjoy these tours, due to the unpredictable nature of the weather in the region and water quality conditions on the river and creek, there will be no refunds issued for missed or cancelled excursions.

Please only register if you are comfortable with the possibility that your tour could be cancelled.

If a tour is cancelled, we will attempt to schedule one make-up date, but that makeup date is also subject to weather and water quality.

No refunds issued, even in the event of a cancellation of the make-up tour.
