We look forward to having you join us on the river.

Outlined below are the deposit requirements and cancellation policies for each of our trips.

Each trip has a limited number of spaces available and cancellations that result in unused spaces are very costly. We strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Please call us if you have any questions (209-962-7873).

ALL TRIPS

All of our trips are operated under Special Use Permits which limit the number of people we can take on each trip.
When you reserve space on a trip, we set that space aside for you and we don’t sell it to others. If you cancel your trip and we are unable to refill your space, those limited spaces are lost.
For that reason, our cancellation policy does not allow for a lot of flexibility.
The best way to safeguard against loss due to cancellation is to purchase trip cancellation insurance; we strongly recommend it. You can learn more here.
