Deposit and Cancellation Policy:

Our goal is to make scheduling adventures with Red's stress free and fair for everyone involved.  Cancellations made by the customer less than 24 hours from the start time, or failure to show, will forfeit 50% of the total cost.  If you cancel more than 24 hours from the start time, you may reschedule or request a refund - 5% to cover processing fees and labor.  If Red's decides to cancel the event due to adverse conditions the customer may request a full refund.  

How Long do We Float?

Guests renting a Framed Fishing Raft can have the boat all day, we typically open at 8 am and they just need to be back at Red's before dark.  

Guests renting a standard length DIY Self Guided Paddle Raft will enjoy a 7 mile float which can range from 2-4 hours depending on river flows and how much you decide to stop along the way.  These will be scheduled as a "morning" (roughly 9 am), or "afternoon" float (roughly 2 pm). The morning float is quiet and much better for viewing wildlife with much less traffic on the river. The afternoon float is better for social groups that don't mind seeing a few other floaters and are more concerned about getting a tan than seeing some deer!  Guests enjoying a Full Day DIY Paddle Raft Rental must be finished with their float by no later than 5 pm. 

What Do We Need to Bring?

We sell the basic rafting essentials. Sunscreen, sunglasses, ice, shorts, sandals, dry bags, and a few other items. Be sure that you bring your own cooler.

We provide life-jackets and paddles for guests on all of our river raft rentals. On our Guided Scenic River Floats we will provide a large cooler full of ice. All children under 12 are required by law to wear life-jackets, and we encourage everyone in the group to wear life-jackets. Red's encourages parents to provide their own life-jackets for kids to ensure a perfect fit.
