TERMS & CONDITIONS - ROW Adventure Center
Our hope is that your first trip with ROW Adventures is just one of many. Thus, our goal is to provide thorough and complete communications and be clear with the details of our agreement with you.

The information below applies to our half-day, one-day and two-day trips only.
PREPARING FOR YOUR TRIP
We do our best to provide you with all the information you will need to prepare for your adventure. The reservation document that we email you will include a detailed gear list of what you should bring.
Most of our trips are suitable for beginners; however, some are more active than others. It’s important that you understand the physical requirements for whatever trip you choose. If you’re not sure about this, please ask for advice from our talented and knowledgeable Adventure Consultants. Be sure to read the “Trip Member’s Responsibility” below, and if you have any medical concerns be sure you speak to your doctor and inform us.

Once your reservation is received we will send you a reservation letter that includes information on where to meet and what to bring.

If notification of cancellation is received (call to verify) 30 or more days in advance of reservation, you will receive a refund less the amount of deposit. Deposits are nonrefundable. No refunds for cancellations less than 30 days. Please understand that once you’ve signed up, we lose the right to sell your reserved spaces to other individuals or groups. Therefore, we regret that we cannot make exceptions for personal emergencies. For this reason we a strongly recommend you consider purchasing a travel protection plan (see below).

However, we reserve the right to cancel a trip or make changes in the itinerary, including moving to a different river or river segment, in the event of circumstances beyond our control including, but not limited to, extreme water conditions (including high or low water), forest fires, road closures, or insufficient sign-ups. If we are not able to provide a substitute trip, river or altered itinerary and have to cancel the departure completely, a full refund will be given. This refund is limited to the amount actually paid to ROW, Inc. Travel expenses, airline tickets or any money not paid directly to ROW will not be compensated.
