frequently asked questions
How do i dress?
Dress in layers and bring a stuff sack. Our tours begin in the cooler coastal weather and progressively warm up as you head upriver. Inland temperatures can be 20-30 degrees warmer than the coast! It is a good idea to wear light quick-drying clothing underneath a sweatshirt and windbreaker. You may also want to bring a light blanket. Be aware of seasonal changes, May tours will require much warmer clothing than August tours!
Comfortable non-slip footwear is advised. Your feet will stay relatively dry during the tour (even on whitewater tours) and there will be a small walk to lodges and restrooms during most tours.
What can i bring?
Passengers are welcome to bring a small stuffsack or backpack on board and should include at least the basics of sunscreen, water, chapstick, sunglasses, and hat. For those 21 and older, make sure to bring ID and cash if you wish to purchase alcoholic beverages at the lodge. Alcoholic beverages or glass containers are not allowed on board the boat.
Our tours are safe and fun for all ages and mobility. Please call us to go over any concerns you may have. For anyone suffering from neck, back, or other physical ailments, it is best to consult your doctor before booking your tour.
When can i go?
