Reservations and Cancellations

Reservations for paddlecraft and camping are strongly suggested. Access our Reservation Page

For trips beginning on a Saturday, the full rental fee must be sent as deposit. For trips beginning Sunday through Friday, $10/craft must be sent as deposit.

REFUND POLICY

On Sunday through Friday trips, if a situation arises and you need to cancel some of the craft you've reserved, the deposit for those cancelled will be credited toward the balance due. If the trip is completely cancelled, the deposit will be refunded, less a $20 processing fee. Our policy for cancellation of Saturday reservations is that cancellations are accepted up to 7 days prior to the trip date, however, there is a $15 charge for each craft cancelled. Cancellations received within 7 days of trip will not be refunded if we are rented out and have turned other guests away. If we are not rented out, we employ the policy for cancellations received 7 or more days prior to the trip date.
