Be prepared and understand the risks. Adventure sports involve risks on the part of the participant. Although we take precautions to ensure an enjoyable trip, we cannot be responsible for personal injury or lost and damaged articles. We require that you acknowledge these risks by listening to a safety briefing prior to your activity as well as reading and signing a liability release prior to departure. We can e-mail or mail one to you for review. There are many options and activities to choose from that offer varying degrees of difficulty, so make sure you choose a trip within your group’s personal limits keeping all participants in mind. Remember to consider your group’s comfort levels when deciding on a difficulty level for your adventure. Minimum requirements exist, and they are a guide for you to use when making a decision about the adventure you are choosing. Factors that go into minimum ages include but are not limited to a person’s height, weight, physical ability, mental capability, and maturity levels. These factors along with years of experience of servicing thousands of guests have gone into setting minimum ages. These ages are just a guide and it is up to the participants and their guardians to choose an adventure within their limits.
While reservations are strongly suggested, walk-ins are always welcome. Advanced reservations are always beneficial as many of our adventures have limited capacity. Please understand that when a reservation is made, it is a commitment for us to hold space for you and possibly turn other away. If you choose to cancel, it can be difficult for us to rebook a trip, especially when the cancellation is close to the trip date. With this in mind we must firm in adhering to our cancellation policies.
