Terms & Policies
Our minimum age for grade 3 rafting is 14 year and for grade 5 rafting is 16 years.
We reserve the right to cancel any trip at any time without any notice. This may be due to but not limited to the following reasons; unsafe water levels, staff illness, minimum client numbers not met, adverse weather, road closures, civil unrest, SOP protocols not met for any reason.
In the event of cancelation we will do the following in this order, 1. Offer to re-book you on another date. 2. Re-book you with another company on the same date (if possible and with a company we recommend as safe) or 3. offer a full refund of any monies already paid, and offer alternate activity / help facilitate alternate itineraries.
We operate 364 days per year (closed on Christmas Day) and will always do our best to ensure we can honor all bookings but due to the nature of our industry we ask our clients to understand that a cancellation is possible and acknowledge our cancellation policy.
It is your duty to inform us of any medical condition that may affect your rafting trip. It is extremely unlikely that a medical condition or injury will stop you from rafting but we do want to know what we're dealing with before we get out on the river.
