****Discounts apply when paying as a group.  Please pool your monies before arriving at the window.  This saves everyone time.   Thank you!***




Above all the way to the left, are our single tubes.  These are double chambered, have handles and are the easiest to control.  Since they are in the water and open, they are the coolest and most popular of our equipment.


Second from the left is one of our party rafts.

These are no longer available.


Third, blue and white, double tube.  Mesh in the middle and they sit a bit higher than the single tube.  We provide a paddle so you have a little more control as it is harder to reach the water with your arms or legs.  There is a small space in the middle where you can store a couple bottles of water or other small items.  Again, the mesh is not made for standing on or diving off of so we ask that you be aware and treat these with that in mind.


Next to this are our rafts.  The small, yellow and orange rafts are our tow behinds for your cooler or other picnic stuff.  (We do not rent these out for people).  The large beige and blue raft is our four man raft.  Seats fit in to the front and back.  These are ideal for cool weather, as you sit up completely out of the water.  However, in the summer heat, they are hot and a bit more difficult to get in and out of to cool yourself down.  We would advise you take something else down river in the heat of the summer but will leave the decision up to you. 


And on the far right end is our sit on top kayak.  These hold up to 250 pounds and are small enough to paddle around on the river and explore.  We have added some other styles of kayaks, weight limit on these are 300 pounds.
