Come join us for an informative and entertaining Float on the Feather! We’ll be going down from the Fish Hatchery to Riverbend Park in 8-person rafts and guided by a DWR Biologist!
We launch at 9:30, 12:00, and 2:30 from under the Green Bridge near the Fish Hatchery.
Cost is $35 per seat adults and $17.50 kids <12; paddles and life jackets are provided.
You bring sunscreen, clothes that can get wet, drinking water, and a sense of adventure!
How to access the launch site: (Shuttle Service Begins at 9:30.)
1) For the 9:30 launch, park at the Fish Hatchery; take the Shuttles back to your car from Riverbend Park. BEST Option if you are there early enough.
2) For ALL launches, there are three options: park at Table Mountain Blvd and Grand and take the direct Shuttle to the Fish Hatchery or park at the Fish Hatchery if there is room and take the Shuttles back to your car from Riverbend Park, or for 12:00 and 2:30 launches, park at Riverbend Park where you’ll take the Shuttle to downtown, then walk 2 blocks to the Table Mtn/Grand Ave Shuttle to the launch area. We put in at Riverbend and your car will be waiting for you.
