Shuttle/Transportation

Transportation

We provide transportation from either of our bases to over 100 launch points. We can move:

  1. You, your boat and your gear - "a transport"
  2. Just boats
  3. Your vehicle - We term this "a shuttle"

Rates for moving you, your gear and / or boat is per this chart:
These rates are for up to two people, gear and two boats. For each additional person (including their gear and boat) add 20% of the Base rate

For moving boats only the following rates apply: The Base Rate is charged for moving 1-3 boats. To figure the price for moving 4 or more boats, apply the following factors to the Base Rate:

4 Boats             Base Rate x 1.5
5 Boats             Base Rate x 1.6
6 Boats             Base Rate x 1.7
7 Boats             Base Rate x 1.8
8 Boats             Base Rate x 1.9
9-12 Boats       Base Rate x 2.0

Shuttles - moving just your vehicle

 
A shuttle is very convenient for many trips and especially convenient for paddlers coming with their own boat. While you are paddling we will come and move your car from the put-in to your take-out.

Shuttles are done for the Base Rate. Additional vehicles with the same party can be moved at the following rate: Base Rate x 0.70
