Maximum Number of Persons and Boats per Guide/Instructor:
In order to maximize the enjoyment of each of our participants, we limit the number of persons and boats that each guide/instructor can accompany on the water. Our maximum ratios are listed below.


Adult/Boats             Kids/guide
12 people/guide       10 people/guide
6 boats/guide           5 boats/guide


An “Adult Boat” is any boat (canoe, kayak, etc.) with at least one adult age 15 and older. Adult boats will be limited to 12 people/6 boats/1 guide.
Quantities shown are the maximum number of persons and boats that each guide may accompany.
If you do not wish to hire enough guides to cover the number of people or boats in your group, you may designate a portion of your group to be under the purview of the guide. The other members of your group may not remain in the vicinity of the guide.
The above ratios apply only to groups hiring a guide/instructor. View our child-to-adult ratios for group outings for unguided kids’ groups.
