The on-site porta-potty will be cleaned with disinfectant after use.

Disinfectant will be used with credit-card transactions.

Cash is an acceptable use of payment but must be exact change.

Safe Distancing:

Launch times will allow 20 minute gaps between reservations.

Arrive 20 minutes before your scheduled launch time.

Remain in your car until indicated, to maintain safe distances between reservations.

Every person renting must complete a waiver each time at CKYK, for contact tracing purposes.
