Service Description

Details This weekend is for both paddlers and NON PADDLERS. There are a lot of activities in the area for non paddlers. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read this event description ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE so you'll know what our rules and recommendations are. ******** READ BEFORE PAYING----------THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION*** This is a Class 2 river but it is a great beginner class 2. The rapids all have great recovery pools below them in case of a swim. If you are comfortable on Class 1, and think you are ready to move up then this is the ideal trip to try that. We do have a few sit on top whitewater boats if you don't think you are ready for a spray skirt. Check with me if you have any doubts about doing this trip. We are staying in a cabin that has 6 bedrooms and 5 and 1/2 baths. 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms. Depending on registrations, you may be sharing a room, but NOT A BED. (Unless you are a couple and request it of course.) Cost is $400.00 per person for the weekend. That includes a bed for Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, breakfast Saturday morning, Dinner Saturday night, Breakfast and Dinner Sunday and breakfast on Monday. I will also have makings for sandwiches for lunch Saturday, Sunday and Monday. So that gets you three nights in the cabin plus 5 meals (and 3 lunches). Trust me, that is cheaper than staying in a local hotel and then driving down the road and eating in one of the local spots, and our food is better! If we get any rain there is a large covered porch. It really is a nice place to hang out with our tribe. THIS IS A CLASS II RIVER. PLEASE DO NOT PLAN TO PADDLE A HARD KAYAK IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE PADDLING AT THIS LEVEL. YOU CAN PADDLE A REC BOAT IF YOU PREFER BUT HELMETS AND SPRAY SKIRTS ARE REQUIRED. I have extra helmets. Sit on tops boats are also fine on this river. We do have some non paddlers who plan to take either rubber ducks or rafts down the river. If you have no interest in paddling there is a lot to do in the area. Beautiful hiking and a winery you can check out. THIS IS A FUN GUIDED TRIP, NOT A CLASS! We will be paddling Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Trips will be led by qualified guides.
