PLEASE REMEMBER: River miles for a trip and the estimate time on river for each trip depend greatly on water levels. Our river levels flutuate quite a lot during one season, thus so do our trip times. The higher the water level, the quicker the trip. And the lower the water level, the slower the trip. When water levels get too high or too low, we always reserve the right to change trip length (longer or shorter). Please understand that your safety is always our number one priority and thus is what our decisions are based on.
