Trip Transfers, Weather, and Water Conditions
All raft trips go rain or shine (we all get wet anyway!). However, should water levels dictate, we reserve the right to change any trip to another section, river, or raft size. On rare occasions, water levels may also demand we change the number of people in the raft and the length of the trip. Since water and weather conditions are Acts of God, we do not issue rain-checks unless all events of the day are cancelled.
Summer Gauley Conditions
Throughout the summer, the Gauley River water level varies. We will choose the raft size best suited for the conditions at 8 AM the morning of the Summer Gauley trip. Rafters: Based on historical data, you have an 80% chance of rafting a section of the Summer Gauley – and the Upper Gauley is choice #1! Duckies: History tells us your chance of boating a section of the Summer Gauley is 99%.
