 Cancellations made less than 30 days before the date of your trip through noon on the day before your trip will receive a rain-check good for two years from the trip date minus the deposit.
  Rain-checks are valid on anything except for trip photographs and alcohol. When cancelling lodging within 7 days from the trip, the amount is non refundable.

“No-shows” on the day of the activity will not be considered for a rain-check or refund.

Weather and Water Conditions

All trips go rain or shine (a lot of our activities we all get wet anyway). However, should water levels dictate, we reserve the right to change any trip to another section, river, or raft size. On rare occasions, water levels may also demand we change the number of people in the raft and the length of the trip. Since water and weather conditions are “Acts of God,” we do not issue rain-checks unless all events of the day are cancelled.
