This is the 9:00am update. We will be running rafts and kayaks on the short trip only. Some previous padding experience is a good idea. No alcohol will be allowed. No children under 10, and anyone under 18 in a raft only. All these restrictions are for your safety, they are not fun for us either. Please do not come out if you are not completely comfortable with the restrictions. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE DURING THIS PERIOD OF UNUSUAL RAIN. ... See MoreSee Less
