3. Deposits sent in for reservations are non refundable unless there is severe weather.

4. If there is severe weather Duggan's requests that you wait at least until 2pm to take your trip before deposits will be refunded.

5. For environmental reasons, glass bottles, Styrofoam coolers and water balloons are not allowed on the river.

6. A deposit of $50 per group (larger groups will be more) is required the day of your trip to ensure that all equipment is returned in good condition and that you and your group are back on time. Your deposit will be kept if you are late. The deposits for rafts are $75.00.
