FAQ'S:

Q: How does the TCD2 work?

A: Allow yourself enough time for traffic! Best to arrive and park at Valley Vineyards by 5:30 to register, sign waivers, get a name tag, enjoy a drink or snack and use the restrooms before we leave at 6:00pm. Busses take us to the put in point; we canoe, and then go back to VV for dinner, drinks, and music!

A:  Dinner includes:  Your choice of either a nice New York Strip Steak, or Atlantic Salmon Filet, 2 types of salad, Green Beans Almadine (or corn on the cob in season), Seasonal Vegetables, Baked Potato, Fresh Breads, Special Homemade desserts.

 

Q: Can we bring our own canoe or use kayaks?

A: Due to the nature of this fun event we use only canoes, no private boats permitted. You may bring a waterproof bag or your own approved PFD.

 

Q: What is the river like on the trip we take?

A: The Little Miami is an easy class 1 river. Mild rapids with calm pools in between. A short 5-minute canoe "refresher" course will given at the put in. No prior experience required. There is always a chance of tipping over, but it is very infrequent.

 

Q: How far is the canoe float, how much time will it take?

A: The canoe float begins at Morgan’s Riverside campground and ends at our pull out just south of the Morrow bridge at our 3-mile take. Depending on the water level is approximately a 1-hour leisurely paddle.

 

Q: What can I expect to see on the float?

A: The Little Miami River is Ohio's first Scenic River. On past trips we have seen a variety of animals including. Bald Eagles, Deer, Blue Herons, Hawks, jumping fish, Kingfisher birds, and lots of turtles!

 

Q: What should I bring/wear?

A: Sunglasses and straps on all eyewear. Depending on the temperatures casual attire and a light jacket, comfy river shoes that can get wet are best on the river. You may want to bring a camera but make sure you have it in a waterproof bag or container. Bottled water will be provided at the put in. We recommend bringing a change of clothes for post-float cookout and live music at Valley Vineyards until 10 pm.

 

Q: What happens if weather and or water conditions are deemed unsafe?

A: This is a rain or shine event, dinner and music will go on and a rain check for a 3-mile trip will be issued. A light rain or drizzle won't stop us. Morgan's reserves the right to use rafts at their discretion, if the river is a little too high for canoes, this is a limited event, there are *No* refunds or canoe vouchers for no shows.

A: No coolers, or alcohol are permitted on the bus or river. Your safety is our upmost concern. We recommend you save the drinking for after the canoe trip. Both Morgan's Outdoor Adventures and Valley Vineyards reserve the right to refuse participation to any inebriated or impaired persons.
