More Details

  • Our Outdoor Guides have years of experience in planning and leading outdoor adventures.
  • Safety is our priority: our guides are trained and experienced in reading river and weather conditions, and our trips don't go out unless conditions are safe. Each guide is certified in Wilderness First Aid, CPR, and Lifeguarding. All guides are fully insured.
  • Our guided trips have the beginner in mind. Most excursions have two guides so we can help those who need more assistance while others paddle on ahead.
  • Paddlers should wear water shoes (sandals, old sneakers etc). Dress comfortably. Quick-drying clothes are the first choice, cotton clothes the last choice. Don't forget sunglasses, sunscreen and camera.
  • Storm King Adventure Tours reserves the right to cancel or provide alternate tours based upon river and weather conditions.
