13. What happens if my group is late?

YOU MUST BE ON-TIME! Being late has consequences anywhere in our lives. We understand that human beings can occasionally be late. We oversleep. We forget. We hit unforeseen traffic jams. In our schedule there are several minutes built-in for those people who, for whatever reason, just can’t put it together by being on time. Jim Thorpe River Adventures is, however, a business – and a licensed rafting outfitter in Lehigh Gorge State Park and Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. We MUST adhere to a rather strict launching schedule. We must adhere to this launching schedule NO MATTER WHY you might be late. For this reason, if you are late for any reason, you may not be able to go on the rafting trip, or the time, for which you reserved. We usually can get you on a trip, but it may not be the trip you reserved. We do not overbook trips like the airlines might overbook a flight. But like the airlines, our raft trips leave at exactly the time required by our contract with the Lehigh Gorge State Park – regardless of the reason for your lateness. Please leave lots of extra time for travel surprises so you make it “ON-TIME” for your rafting trip ARRIVAL TIME. You’ll be glad you did…
