We provide a great trip briefing before every trip so you know what to expect.

$10 per cooler tube. *Cooler tubes do NOT include a cooler*

Coolers are available for rent for an additional $10 for those who need them. Or bring your own with snacks and drinks for the day. No styrofoam coolers, please.

Price is per each individual trip.

Payment may be made with cash (flat rate), check, travelers check, or credit/debit card. Sales taxes and fees are added to card sales. One form of payment is required for each reservation so have people in your group pay you ahead of time through Venmo or other methods.
