CAN I DOWNLOAD AND PRINT MY RENTAL WAIVER?
Yes! Since 2007, Fort Wayne Outfitters has provided quality river trips for thousands of people, with an excellent safety record. Still, any river adventure will involve inherent risks and dangers, and can be physically demanding. We ask you to assume the responsibility for many decisions affecting your safety.

Yes, a $10 late charge per rental bike/boat will be charged starting at 8:01 pm sharp as well as an additional $10 bike/boat per rental for every 1/2 hour thereafter.
DO I NEED A RESERVATION?
Walk-ins are welcome, most of our guests are walk-ins and we are able to accommodate them on a “first come, first served” basis. Although we have ample amounts of watercraft and transportation vehicles, there may be some unavoidable delays due to heavy volume at key times and especially on weekends! To avoid disappointment, advance reservations are recommended!

We hold on to either a credit card or a valid ID throughout the duration of your rental. However, we will not charge anything until you return.
DO YOU HAVE LOCKERS?
No. We have a changing room available for customers to change. We strongly suggest keeping valuables at home or secured in your car OUT OF SIGHT. We can hold your keys at the counter. Small dry bags are available for rent for $3 to keep cameras or wallets dry and safe while on the water.
CAN I BRING A COOLER? WHAT ABOUT ALCOHOL?
Coolers are welcome! Although we don’t regularly check coolers, we do reserve the right to inspect coolers, bags, etc. taken on a river trip.
We strongly discourage the use of alcohol in any of our rental equipment or vehicles. We ❤ sober paddlers! It is against the law to operate a watercraft while intoxicated. Additionally, Fort Wayne Outfitters reserves the right to turn away any guest at any time, who appears to be intoxicated, with no refund issued.
