Looks like we will not be dealing with covid-19 in 2023.

The best way to start your paddling experience is to make sure after checking in you wash your hands after handling doors, etc. If you are still worried I would suggest make sure you are paddling with your group only – Meaning your family will be the only ones in the raft, or if you are paddling a single craft you are not too close to others. We think you should always use common sense and do what you feel is the best for your family. Paddle safe, have fun.
