Q:

I want to take my neice & her friend on this trip as a birthday gift to my niece. If I purchase 2 groupons (the 1-person for me..and the 2-person as a gift for the birthday girl), can the 3 of us redeem the two groupons to raft the same trip together?

Margaret R.  asked on  Jul 16, 2013

A:

That sounds like a great gift! This Groupon has a limit of 1 Groupon per visit per person. As long as you each have your own Groupon, you're all set. Enjoy!

Hello Margaret, The answer is yes. To do so, please be sure to register each participant individually through our website so that you may add everyone to a trip using our scheduling interface - each participant will need a separate email and login. Here is a handy link with additional instructions on how to do that: http://www.potomacpaddlesports.com/groupon/ All scheduling for the Whitewater Rafting Groupon must be done by the individual(s) participating in the trip online, or by their parent or guardian so that we have 100% accurate information on their height, weight, injuries, allergies, and contact information. We ask that you please only call or email us to schedule as a last resort, as the scheduling software is designed for 24-hour access by our clients, and it is what we use ourselves to manage the schedule. Thank you and we look forward to paddling with you in the near future! Sunny Pitcher, Founder & President Potomac Paddlesports

Q:

Once we buy the tickets, do we need to schedule a day and time thru email for rafting or is there a website where we can check the open slots?

sevugan s.  asked on  Jul 11, 2013

A:

When you open your Groupon, it will include redemption instructions under the "How to use this" section. For this deal you would go to a website to make a reservation.

Diane T.  from  Groupon  replied on  Jul 11, 2013

A:

Hello Sevugan, Thank you for your question. This deal will be available for scheduling after the current Groupon offer concludes - which is 7/18/13. All July - September dates are being held open until that time. We reserve the right to consolidate dates and times to ensure full trips. Please follow the instructions at http://www.potomacpaddlesports.com/groupon at the conclusion of of the Groupon countdown. You may also follow up with us via email at info@potomacpaddlesports.com and be sure to add that email adress to your approved sender list in your email program so our communication is not tagged as trash or spam. We look forward to paddling with you! Sunny Pitcher, Founder & President Potomac Paddlesports

Q:

Would you allow my son on the raft who weighs between 85 to 87lbs? he can paddle well

sevugan s.  asked on  Jul 11, 2013

A:

Hi Sevugan! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, no. We need to maintain 90 lbs. as a cutoff for our minimum weight range due to the proper fitment of personal floatation devices. You can still purchase the Groupons to take advantage of the savings and redeem them in 2014 when your son will meet our weight restrictions. Thank you, Sunny Pitcher, Founder & President Potomac Paddlesports

Q:

Is it possible that a person with limited capacity physically to go without paddling? I have COPD, I do not use oxygen but have low physical endurence.

Valerie M.  asked on  Jul 10, 2013

A:

Hello Valerie! Generally we strive to accomodate individuals with limited physical capacity, so that as many people as possible get the opportunity to experience this wild, scenic, and relatively unknown section of the Potomac River near DC. Could you please send us an email to my attention at info@potomacpaddlesports.com so we could speak with you directly about your limitations and the trip? Thank you, Sunny Pitcher, Founder & President Potomac Paddlesports

Q:

If I purchase the 6 group ons, can my family of 6 use them all together for one rafting trip?

Christine M.  asked on  Jul 10, 2013

A:

Hello Christine! We've provided the option to purchase 6 and 12 Groupons specifically so that families and groups or organizations can plan an outing together. Each of our rafts accommodate 6 guests of average weight of 175 lbs. Due to high demand, we request that everyone follow our registration policy found at http://www.potomacpaddlesports.com/groupon. In addition, when you purchase the 6 Groupon option, we'd ask that you send an email to info@potomacpaddlesports.com with your date request, as well as any other additional dates, including weekdays that works for your group of 12 or more, as 12 is the minimum amount for a private outing. Your email will help us flag your registration and better accomodate you. The most important consideration is that our organization will work to accomodate all individuals and groups, and that there is an extended expiration until October 2014 for this reason, and also to allow for any potential postponement on our end due to weather, low water, or other considerations. If you or your group needs additional time, or there is a period of extreme drought, we will accomodate beyond the printed expiration. Thank you for your question and we look forward to paddling with you soon! Sunny Pitcher Founder & President Potomac Paddlesports
