Affordable Weekend Shuttle Available to Yakima River Floaters in Richland
Finally! Weekend shuttle service is available for Yakima River floaters in Richland.
The shuttle service is the brainchild of a Tri-Cities woman, Faith Luna. She's a mother with a side-hustle. For now, the service is available on weekends only. Faith and her husband will shuttle parties up to 6 people from the bottom of the Yakima River at Chamna Natural Preserve in Richland to the top, at the Yakima River Bridge. The $25 donation is to cover gas and expenses for the vehicles.
Luna and her husband have a truck and a car for transporting floaters. She's enlisted the help of several family members for when the shuttle service picks up. Luna reminds floaters to bring their own tubes and life jackets. They are NOT provided.
What is provided, is inflation of your tubes at the river before launching.
Luna offers some tips to share for responsible floating on the Yakima River.
Bring a garbage bag. Clean up after yourself and others. Keep the river clean.
Bring hydration. Water is good. Some people use floaty coolers to keep their beverages cold. Pack snacks
Don't forget sunscreen.
Remember, bring your own tubes and life jackets. They are not provided.
