This will be an affordable, fun, easy outing. It's child and elder friendly, but pets aren't allowed in the boats. Sorry! We'll meet at the dock and after introductions and info, we'll get out on the water and paddle! This is especially great for those new to canoeing. The water is very shallow and slow. Next Adventure will provide and transport the canoes, oars, and life jackets. You only need your water bottle and snacks, and camera. The cost will be $15 per adult, The first minor under 18 is free, per adult. Send your payments to Pamela Slaughter or 503-349-1061 via MeetUp, Venmo, cash app or PayPal when you RSVP or before July 15th. Payments will be sent in by myself on July 20th. There will be no refunds after July 6th, even if someone couldn't make it after all, unless someone on the waiting list pays and takes their place. The canoes hold 8 - 10 people each; this won't be an individual canoe outing. Some of the canoes are connected to each other for extreme stability, which is great for those with anxiety about being on the water. Refunds will be given before July 20th but not after that unless a waitlisted person can replace the vacated spot. For those who saw our video, this is the same place! Kind of magical!
