We were caught in a thunderstorm with our 8 and 10 year old on the river. No one came to look for us and we felt very helpless. The river started out very calm and the day was beautiful. I don't fault the company for the weather, but they should have warned us to wear life vests. Only the kids had them on. They also should have warned us to have the kids tied to us. The company is very disorganized. I know I signed a waiver, but there is a reason I chose a company and not to attempt it on my own. They should have come to look for people in the storm to make sure their customers were ok. The Delaware is a huge river and we were stranded on an island in the middle of the river that we managed to get ourselves to with another group of 2 women and 4 little kids. It was thunder and lightning and the only way home was to get back in the river and float to the exit. We waited about a half hour for the storm to die down then we got back in. We were on the opposite side of the exit so we needed to somehow paddle (with arms) and kick our way to the other side of a very fast moving river. We tied the kids together with a shoelace. I hung out of my tube (while my 10yo held onto my tube) My husband kicked from the back while holding onto my 8yo. We were a very awkward tube train trying to get out before the next storm. All the time we could hear thunder in the sky. When we were about 1/4 mile from the exit a guy on a boat did come to check on us (how nice!!) Never Again!!!
