What if we could make the most of these final weeks before opening day?


We’ve made it to the final stretch before opening day and there is so much to do. Between contacting all of your family and friends…to choosing a date…and making a reservation…there’s a little more than a lot to do (not really). But we are in the final stretches, and everything is a buzz.

In between getting ready for the big day and the constant changes that spring in our little corner of the world bring – it’s important to make sure we’re paying attention to the important things. In these last few days, that final countdown (cue the inspirational music), we need to make sure that we are making the most of every moment. And some of making the most means making sure that our trip is as enjoyable and as safe as it can be.

With a year full of trying to keep as safe as possible, I know it can be a little daunting having to worry about safety precautions while getting ready for a bit of fun.


However, being safe on the river is an important part of having your best river experience. It can also be as easy as keeping an eye out. Here at Lander’s, river safety is a huge part of what we believe in – and is something you can do to make sure that every person in your party has a great experience.

We will do our best to accommodate the needs of all of our guests in a safe manner.

Covid-19 has not changed the beauty of the river or the nature that will be surrounding you. However, we at Lander’s have changed some of our policies to ensure the safety of all of our guests. We are committed to protecting each and every one of you, above and beyond the CDC recommendations.


Here are some more of our favorite tips for being safe during your river safari:


  • Be prepared before you go: One of the most important things you can do for your trip is to make sure you keep an eye on the weather. You don’t want to get caught in a storm on the water – but you also don’t want to get scorched!
  • Make sure you dress appropriately: Wearing light layers can be really helpful when you’re out on the water. Shorts, long sleeves, even a light sweatshirt, can help provide coverage from the sun, keep you dry on the water, and help in case the weather changes while you’re out and about. Don’t forget those close-toed shoes (water shoes are great!) to help keep you steady if you end up in the water and keep your toes safe.
  • Keep a first aid kit: When you pack up that bag for your trip, make sure you have a first aid kit with you. Band aids, aspirin, antibiotic ointment, etc., these are all super helpful things to keep at hand whenever you’re spending any extended time outside. It’s also a good idea to include some extra sunscreen and some aloe (just in case).
  • Include extra water: Regardless of the conditions outside, whether it’s a sunny day or a dreary one, having tons of drinking water on hand is important. We need to stay hydrated to feel our best, and to make sure we’re making conscious, good decisions. Plus, being out on the river – in any form – is a workout and a nice drink of water after a workout always feels amazing.
  • Last but not least, wear your life jacket at ALL times: This one might seem a little self-explanatory, but keeping that life jacket on at all times is crucial to maintaining your safety on the water.



With all this mind…
