COVID-19 Notice

 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Brule River Canoe Rental, Inc. is enacting the following operating procedures to slow the spread of the virus and to stay within legal and recommended guidelines.

  1. Group Limits- 10 persons

Groups are limited to 10 persons. Reservations can be made on the half-hour. With this limiting time slot, time slots will fill up quickly so please make your reservation as soon as possible.

  1. Office Procedure

One customer will be allowed within the Brule River Canoe Rental, Inc. office at a time. We strongly recommend reservations to be made on-line and payments as well as reservations can be made over the phone @ 715-372-4983. We are currently in the process of implementing an on-line payment system.

  1. Shuttle Procedure

Until guidelines are lifted, customers are required to transport themselves and their group to the starting point. Brule River Canoe Rental, Inc. will transport the canoes and kayaks and arrange to have your vehicle shuttled to your destination landing. Please bring a spare set of car keys. Proper sanitizing techniques will be utilized.

      4. Cleaning Procedures

We refer to CDC.gov/Covid-19 for proper cleaning recommendations and will be implementing these recommendations into our business strategy. (Ex. 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water).

      5. Recommendation to be prepared

A. If you prefer to bring your own pfd/life jacket instead of using ours, you are more than welcome. Again, we will use the recommendations of disinfecting by the CDC.

B.We recommend reservations and paying in advance either by our website or over the phone to eliminate the need to enter our office.

C. Print out liability forms below on Page 2 below, before arrival. This will eliminate another step and the need to enter our office.

D. Know the River Guidelines 

1. NO Glass and ALL litter must be secured in a larger container that is securely fastened to the craft.

2. Please use courtesy when on the river:

  • leave no trace;
  • respect private property;
  • pack out whatever you pack in;
  • use quiet voices; and
  • show respect and sensitivity to others enjoying the river.
