Safety Protocols: A Fortified Foundation

From the moment you step onto our property to the final splash, your safety is our top priority. Here’s how we ensure it:

  • Pre-Trip Briefings: Every adventure begins with a thorough briefing conducted by our certified guides. We cover everything from proper paddling techniques and safety gear usage to river etiquette and potential hazards. You will feel prepared and confident by the time you’re on the water.
  • Top-Notch Equipment: We invest heavily in top-of-the-line rafts and safety gear. Every piece is meticulously inspected, sanitized, and maintained after each use, going above the rigorous industry standards.
  • Life Jackets and Helmets are Non-Negotiable: We provide high-quality, U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets for every participant, regardless of swimming ability. They are always worn throughout the entire trip, and fitted by your guide before you get on the river.
  • Highly Certified Guides: Our guides aren’t just experienced; they are highly trained professionals with EMT, Swiftwater Rescue, and even Paramedic certifications. They possess the skills and knowledge to handle any situation on the water. 
  • First Aid and CPR Ready: Every guide is certified in First Aid and CPR, ensuring they can administer immediate care in case of minor injuries or emergencies.
  • Real-Time Communication: We utilize a robust communication system, allowing guides to stay in constant contact with each other and our base camp for immediate response if needed.

Training Procedures: Sharpening Our Skills for Your Safety

Safety isn’t just a checklist; it’s a continuous learning process. Our guides undergo:

  • Rigorous Initial Training: Our experienced guides participate in an intensive training refresher each spring covering raft handling, rescue techniques, and safety protocols.
  • Ongoing Skill Development: We conduct regular training sessions throughout the season, focusing on advanced rescue techniques, scenario simulations, and equipment familiarization.
  • Annual Certification Renewal: All guides maintain their safety certifications through annual renewals, ensuring their skills remain sharp.

Emergency Response Plans: Prepared for Anything

While we strive to prevent emergencies, we are always prepared to react quickly and effectively if needed. Our comprehensive emergency response plans include:

  • Pre-Identified Evacuation Routes: We have established evacuation routes for various scenarios, ensuring swift and safe exit from the river in case of unforeseen circumstances.
  • Clear Communication Protocols: Clear communication chains are defined to ensure quick notification of emergencies and efficient coordination between guides, our base camp, and emergency responders.
  • First-Aid Kits and Medical Supplies: Every trip carries a well-stocked first-aid kit with essential medical supplies to address minor injuries.
  • Collaboration with Local Emergency Services: We maintain strong relationships with local emergency services, ensuring their swift response if needed. Some of our guides are EMTs and Paramedics and are right there on the water with you.

Transparency is Key: Building Trust with Open Communication

We believe informed participants are safer participants. That’s why we encourage you to ask questions, voice concerns, and clarify any safety doubts you might have. Our guides are always happy to address your inquiries and provide detailed explanations. They are experienced, professional, and welcoming – there are no silly questions!
