We require 48 hours notice for all canceled reservations.
5. Are there bathrooms located on board our vessels?
In order to access some of these remote areas we utilize rough water Zodiac watercraft. These vessels are smaller then your more traditional boat tours and do not come equipped with bathrooms. Although there are no bathrooms located on board our crafts there are bathrooms located at our Trout River pond headquarters and a remote bathroom stall located at the back of Trout River pond. In other words, please “go before we go.”

9. What can I do if I can’t do the hike?
In order to accommodate all visitors our tours run on a daily rotating schedule and do not always include a hike. There are days where we run only our Tableland Boat Tour which does not include a hike. Please refer to our experience page to find what experience is right for you.
