Great Falls Rafting FAQs
How much experience do I need for this trip?
Is it safe?
Participants in all activities will be required to sign a waiver stating they are aware of the risks involved and are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Those with health problems limiting their normal activities may be prohibited from participation at Zoar Outdoor’s discretion. Pregnant people will be prohibited from participating in Zoar Outdoor Activities.
What if I have food allergies?
You’re welcome to call our office at 1-413-339-4010 with any questions about the menu. If you intend to bring your own meal, please let us know ahead of time, since we take all of the food for the day out on the river with us and would need to plan on including your food.
Do you have group rates?
How many people fit in a boat?
For example, if you’re reserving two people, you may be paired with a party of 4 or 5. If you have a group of 10 people, we would just divide you into two boats that travel together on the water. We also have two 8-9 person boats that are sometimes available for this trip.
Can we rent wetsuits?
Online or over the phone, you can pre-rent a wetsuit package for $15 plus tax; this package includes a wetsuit, a pair of river booties, and a splash jacket. Pre-rentals online or over the phone are non-refundable if you choose not to use them.
You can also rent them here at Zoar before you trip for $15 for the wetsuit, and $7.50 each for the booties and the jacket or $25 for the whole package.
Are wetsuits required?
Wetsuits are ideal for those wishing to layer up for colder weather or those who tend to get chilly easily. The extra wetsuit layer helps to keep you warm, so it depends on personal preference.
What happens if the forecast calls for rain or storms?
If we do have to cancel the trip, that decision would be made on the morning of the trip. However, it’s rare that weather forces us to cancel our rafting trips.
What do we do with our car keys?
Should I tip my guide?
Can I request a guide?
