LIFEJACKETS ARE REQUIRED: Every Blues City Kayaks participant is required to wear a US Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD) while paddling or in the water. Children must wear child size approved PFD’s. There are no exceptions to the PFD requirements. A PFD is included with your boat rental.
All Blues City Kayaks participants will need to meet at the Piperton, TN access point no later than the start time. To get to the Piperton, TN access point:
If you are coming from 385/269:

Prior to launching: We will conduct safety instructions for the tour. Launch time will be around 9AM.
You should bring sunscreen, bug spray, water, snacks, as well as any other personal items you may need. For a comfortable trip back home, you may want to bring a second set of clothing to keep in your vehicle to change into after the paddle. The time required for the paddle will depend entirely on the group, but we do plan to stop a time or two, so please take that into consideration.
Your river guides will do everything possible to make sure you thoroughly enjoy the trip. Feel free to call/text Blues City Kayaks at (901) 762-1133 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
Cotton clothing is not recommended because it retains water. Dry-wick or neoprene layers are recommended. Another recommendation is to bring a set of dry clothing in the event your clothes get wet. Please bring plenty of water and snacks for the trip. Also, be sure and bring a very pleasant, accommodating attitude and come prepared to enjoy a relaxing Summer afternoon experiencing the Middle Wolf River.
Water sensitive electronic devices should be securely stored in a dry bag when not in use. The Wolf River has claimed many of these devices! The “zip-lock” plastic bags are not waterproof and will not offer protection from the river. Your guide will have dry bags for such items so be sure let your guides know if you need something stored. Items to consider are cellphones, electronic keys, wallets, cameras, and anything else that could be damaged if immersed in water.
There are no bathroom facilities at any of the Wolf River boat launch sites; therefore, it is advisable to make a bathroom stop prior to arriving and/or boarding the craft.
Disclaimer: The river access and take-out points are relatively safe environments and you should be able to leave your vehicle in the put-in and take-out parking areas. The security of your vehicle, personal items you leave in the vehicle or bring along on the river are your responsibility to maintain. Blues City Kayaks is not liable for losses or damage to private property, whether such losses or thefts occurs in the parking areas/lots or on the river.
