      Are there age requirements?

      They say age is just a number and we (mostly) agree! However, group dynamic considerations, we do have a minimum age of 8 on our small group departures. But there’s no maximum!

      If you have someone under 8 in your group, we can accommodate all ages on a private adventure, so let’s talk!
