A NOTE ON RIVER ETIQUETTE

WE ALL WANT TO HAVE A FUN AND SAFE TIME ON THE RIVER, SO HERE ARE SOME COMMON SENSE RULES TO LIVE BY ON THE WATER:

  • Make sure there are no legs or arms dangling over the edge of your raft during launch
  • If you are in trouble wave your red signal to have someone arrive at your raft as soon as possible (NEVER misuse this signal)
  • If you see someone red-flagging an emergency situation on their raft it is your obligation to make sure you or someone else gets to that raft as soon as possible.
