The chance of an accident is low...but caution is a must. Floaters under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver. • If you would like a guide, there is a required tip of at least $25 for the bridge tour. Guides are subject to availability, please contact us early to arrange. • Keep your life jacket on the entire time you are on the river! Life jackets are provided, but feel free to bring your own. • Bring a watch. • Bring water and/or snack. Having water is critical during summer months especially on long floats. In high heat situations we will not allow people on the river unless they have fluids. • Old tennis shoes, water shoes, or sandals all work fine. • Minimum age required for MO River: 13 years and must be accompanied by an adult. • Minimum two floaters. -Keep your life jacket on all the time. • Be honest...If you feel uncomfortable at any time, tell your guide or group member. • Stay alert...The peaceful flow of the river can cause you to drop your guard. • Keep your bow (nose) down river. This will minimize any accidents. • Pointing the bow of the boat directly into the wind will help prevent capsizes. • Communicate. If you are having difficulty or see an obstruction ahead, be sure to warn those around you. Stay within hearing distance of those in your group. • In case you flip: -Don't worry about the boat or paddles. -Verify your partner is ok. -If possible, stay with the boat. -Get the attention of others.
