In order to attend a trip or instructional workshop, participants must do the following:

  • Register for the trip during the appropriate sign-up period online or over the phone.  Payment in full or a non-refundable 50% deposit is acceptable for specified courses. Payment in full is mandatory by the start of all courses.
  • If signing up for Chile Adventure Travel trips, commit a non-refundable deposit in order to reserve space. Full trip cost is due no later than 15 days prior to the start of the trip. 
  • Submit a signed liability waiver to attend the trip or clinic.
  • Provide an eligible email address and phone number to provide participant with appropriate pre-trip information.
  • Be on time to the trip or workshop.  Trips or workshops will not be delayed or pro-rated for participants.



  • We do not offer refunds for H2o Dreams programming. Students may receive a refund if he/she finds a replacement for his/her spot in the class. Deposits are non-refundable, and total trip cost is to be paid in full by 15 days prior to the trip start date; payment, in its entirety, is thereby non-refundable within 15 days of trip start date. H2oDreams reserves the right to cancel and reschedule a clinic or lesson at any time as weather and river flows can be unpredictable and will work diligently to communicate changes in plans and location in a timely manner with safety and effectiveness as a number one priority. Should a course be cancelled on the part of H2o Dreams, a full refund or course credit will be offered. 



  • A $25 rescheduling fee is required for cancellations and/or rescheduling within two weeks of the course date; this fee may be waived if a replacement is found on the part of the student. Otherwise, course credit may be applied to a class after priority is given to first-time registrants. Students who are rescheduling group clinics will be wait listed and informed of his/her status no less than three days out from the course. Private instruction may be rescheduled at the availability of the instructor(s).
