We strongly suggest that you leave your keys safely with us so you don't lose or damage them on the river.
Water shoes or strapped sandals are ideal. Flip flops are often lost, and bare feet can be uncomfortable as walking is necessary.
Most of the runs are knee-hip deep, however there are a few deeper spots. As the summer progresses and the water levels drop, there may be a few spots you will need to walk over, so river footwear is a must, as the rocks in the river are slippery.
ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS OR STYROFOAM COOLERS PERMITTED ON THE RIVER. Cans or plastic only please.
No loose items. All items going out on the water must be secured in a cooler, backpack or closed container. Please NO PLASTIC BAGS as they are environmentally unfriendly.
Sunscreen is a must!
Life jackets can be available for a $5 deposit. Call ahead to reserve, if one is required.
Tubing is best for kids ages 5 and up.
We do not recommend tying groups together, as it slows you down considerably, and leaves you unable to manoeuver around obstacles in the river.
Stopping along the shore on the way, or tying together will alter your time on the water.
Watch for the NTR exit sign at the end of your run.
We recommend that you carpool when travelling in groups for parking space.
Everyone will be required to sign a waiver. For participants under the age of 16, a parent or guardian must sign for them.
DID YOU KNOW?
NTR routinely checks the river for items that may have gotten away, but we also hire a scuba diver to get in the deep areas along our route.
NTR has also been a proud supporter of many local organizations.
