Spring Rafting FAQs
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 is a non-guaranteed day? (For the Zoar Gap Rafting trip)
By booking a non-guaranteed day you understand that we may need to alter the day’s itinerary based upon the water release. If we are unable to run the trip or if the scheduled start time changes, we will call you by 7PM the evening before your trip. If you do not receive a call, the trip will be running as scheduled and you should plan to arrive for your trip at the start time indicated on your guest confirmation.
What if I have food allergies?
You’re also welcome to call our office at (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?
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?
Will there be photos of my trip?
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?
How many people usually go in a boat?
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.
