YOU MUST ARRIVE ON TIME.

Please be sure to arrive ½ hour prior to your trip start time to allow for check-in and preparation. Remember…
WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT WAIT FOR LATE ARRIVALS.

The meeting place for your raft trip is located within 4 blocks of exit #239 of Interstate 35. Take the Scanlon Exit #239 (located near mile marker #239) and, whether or not you were traveling from the north or south, take a right off the exit onto Hwy 45 North. Proceed 1 block to the stop light, and turn right onto Hwy 61 East. Proceed another block, make the next right onto Rivergate Avenue, then an immediate left onto the frontage road. We share our parking lot with “THE RIVER INN BAR AND GRILL” on the bank of the river. If you cross over the St. Louis River you’ve gone too far. MORE FRIENDS WANT TO JOIN THE TRIP? Often, once your initial rafting reservations are made, friends decide they would like to join in the fun. NO PROBLEM! As long as we still have space available on your trip you can increase the size of your group by calling our reservation hotline (218) 522-4446 between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. If you arrive at our meeting place with unreserved additional persons, we may not be able to add them to your group. Don’t risk the frustration – please call us first. We’ll make every effort to accommodate you.

Our experience has led to guidelines about who can safely enjoy our whitewater rafting trips. For detailed information click here.

Cannot Be Pregnant:
We do not want you to risk your pregnancy (and wouldn’t want to jeopardize a future rafter).
Must Be At Least 11 Years Of Age:
Don’t get us wrong, we love children (some may say we never outgrew that ourselves). Our experience is that under 11 is too small to effectively paddle and safely maneuver if they should end up in the river (not a goal but it does happen).
Must Be Capable Of Following Directions Given In English:
Although some of us are multi-lingual, it is still important that all participants be able to clearly understand, and quickly respond to, our advice and directions during your trip on the river (Mother Nature only speaks one language– force of gravity pulling mass of water).
Must Arrive Sober And Drug Free:
We simply have to deny participation, without refund, to anyone who is under the influence of any kind of mood altering chemicals, including alcohol, for the safety of all participants.
