Thank you for registering for Blues City Kayaks’ “Introduction to the Urban Wolf River” tour! Please read the information below thoroughly. It will help ensure things run as smoothly as possible. We are looking forward to introducing you to the first urban section of the Wolf River!
Below is a link to the waiver form for the trip. Please print it out, read it, initial and sign, and bring it with you. If you have a guest besides yourself, a copy will need to be filled out by them as well. If your guest is a minor, please fill this out on their behalf and a parent or legal guardian must sign and attend.
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 Walnut Grove access point no later than the start time listed. To get to the Walnut Grove access point parking area:
If you are coming from Germantown Road:
If you are coming from I-240
If you have any questions or have difficulty finding the access point, please don't hesitate to call or text (901) 762-1133.
Prior to launching: We will conduct safety instructions for the paddle. Launch time will be about 30-45 minutes after the start time.
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.
We 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 email@example.com with any questions you may have.
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 Spring afternoon enjoying the first urban section of the 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. “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.
