Safety is our number one priority. All participants MUST wear life jackets per our US Coast Guard permit. The float is supervised by US Coast Guard, Multnomah County River Patrol, AMR-River Rescue, Portland Fire, and 50-75 water monitors and safety paddlers. 

Sorry, but alcohol is forbidden on the float. Anyone found consuming alcohol on the float will be removed by law enforcement. You can drink at the beach party once on shore.

early, survival rates are great. If left untreated over time, survival rates drastically
Check your skin and that of others. If you see something, get it checked out. Learn
