  • PFD’s: Personal flotation devices or Life Jackets MUST be worn by all our paddlers properly zipped and/or buckled at all times while on the water, in the manner intended by the manufacturer. Persons not willing to follow this requirement are not permitted on our trips. Inflatable PFD’s are NOT allowed.
  • Sound signal (whistle, horn, etc.) is required.
  • If weather is questionable, contact leader.
  • Boat ramps can normally be used to launch canoes and kayaks but keep the boat ramp clear for boat trailers.
