CATAWBA RIVER OUTDOORS
Frequently asked questions
How does the trip work?
You arrive at our location, get signed up. You can either start from there and float down to our other location or we can shuttle you up river and you can get out where your car is parked. Both trips are around 2 hours long.
If you like you can be shuttled up the river and do both runs this takes around 4.5 hrs depending on water flow.
Are reservations required?
NO, NOT UNLESS YOU HAVE A GROUP OF 10 OR MORE. If the weather has been rainy it is a good idea to call ahead and make sure and
confirm that we are open, or you can check our facebook page where we post updates to weather and river
Length of trip?.
We offer two tubing runs. Normal run is about 2hrs and extended run is 4hrs. You can stay on the river as
long as you like but if you just float straight down those times are what can be expected.
What to wear?
We suggest bathing suits or shorts its really up to you. We highly recommend water shoes or old tennis
shoes because there are rocks and possibly other things that you would not want to step on with bare feet.
Do you offer group or military discount?
Yes, if you have 10 or more in your group the price drops to $15.00 per person for the 2hr trip and $20 per person for the extended trip and Veterans and active
military receive a 10% discount on their admission. Please notify the person signing you up if you are a
veteran or active military.
Do you allow dogs on tubes?
We don't recommend bringing your dog but if you do it must be a small dog (under 30lbs) and we also
recommend bringing a life jacket for your dog.
Can I bring a cooler?
Yes, you can bring a cooler. We have cooler floats that you can rent for $10.00. We also have trash cans
so you can properly dispose of your trash when you get off of the river. Alcohol is legal and allowed on the
River but consumption of alcohol is not allowed on the premises of C.R.O.
Do not bring anything on the river with you that don't want to loose or ruin. We advise people to lock up
phones and other items in their car and we will keep their keys in the office.
