Important Safety Reminders
Always wear a life jacket
Always file a float plan
Dress in layers and pack extra clothes in a waterproof bag.
Never mix alcohol and boating. Alcohol impairs judgment, slows reaction time and increases the chance of hypothermia.
Carry an extra paddle, a first aid kit and waterproof matches or a lighter.
Floating in Wood-Tikchik State Park offers a remote wilderness experience. Most areas are very isolated and require travelers to be self sufficient.
Please bring extra food and clothing, a waterproof shelter and a personal locater beacon or satellite phone on your trip.
