Alcohol on the River

Consuming Alcohol on the River

Although we do not prevent you from bringing alcoholic beverages on the river, we do expect responsible behavior. Stupid drunkenness is not cool and will not be tolerated. Your judgement and abilities may be diminished by alcohol along with your ability to withstand cold, and summer sun may dramatically intensify the affects of alcohol.

In Virginia, drinking in public is illegal and intoxicated individuals are subject to immediate arrest. Do not put yourself in that position. Be responsible and smart, and make the ride home safe and sober.
