  2. Yes we are open.
  3. Call or text to make your reservations Sunday-Saturday 9am-5pm. Shuttles fill fast so make sure you call ahead.

You can contact us Sun - Sat 9am-5pm

3. Can I follow the shuttle to the river?

No. You MUST ride our shuttle to and from the river if you are renting our equipment. 

4. Can I rent a Kayak and transport it myself?

No. You can NOT rent our equipment and transport them yourself. We transport our equipment to and from the river.

5. What time should I arrive for my shuttle?

You should be at our shop 15 minutes before your shuttle time. You will need to sign waivers, make payments, get your life jackets fitted and be ready to leave on time. There may be others on the shuttle and they should not have to wait.

6. Can you transport my kayak or tube on your shuttle?

Yes. If you are renting from us and also have some of your own equipment we will shuttle you and your equipment for 15.00 per person and shuttle you all together from our shop. If you are bringing your own tube you must inflate it yourself. We do not inflate equipment that is not ours. You must take kayaks on and off your vehicle, we will load and off load them from our trailers.

If you only need a shuttle with no rentals we will meet you at the boat access you plan to finish your day at, and shuttle you up the river.

7. Will you pick us up at our hotel?

Yes. We will pick you up at any Jonesville hotel. You never have to get into your car wet. We will pick you up and drop you back off after your trip.

8. How long is the trip?

Ronda access to Elkin is 6.8 miles on the Yadkin River and takes about 3 hours on a kayak and 4 hours on a tube. 

Roaring River access is 15.1 miles on the Yadkin River and takes about 5 hours on a Kayak.

The time of the trip depends on river levels, how often you stop along the river, and how much you paddle. These are just estimated times.

9. What should I bring or not bring on my trip?

You should not bring anything you do not want to get wet or lost.

You should have plenty of sunblock and a cooler with cold drinks. Keep in mind some trips can be long and the sun can be very hot floating on the river.  Water shoes are also a great idea on the river. 

We have coolers, cooler floats and cell phone cases to rent and purchase.

All equipment which include all kayaks, tubes, paddle and life jackets are washed after each use. nothing goes back out until it has been cleaned. This has always been our policy.
