No. As a courtesy to you, we do not request an online deposit. All payment transactions will occur at the kiosk upon your arrival. However, we ask for this same courtesy should you need to cancel: please notify us as soon as possible if your plans change.

What happens if it rains?


Hoopla Island is just as safe when it rains. However, we will be forced to close should there be thunder, lightning and strong winds. We will reopen as soon as the lifeguard says it is safe to do so. We may also close during smoky conditions from forest fires for the health and safety of our staff.




Will I be notified if Hoopla Island closes because of bad weather?


If the weather is uncertain, we aim to send a courtesy email to all participants warning of the possible closure. Should we decide to close, we will notify all participants of the closure by email as soon as reasonably possible. Please check the forecast and our website prior to attending as it is still your responsibility to risk attending when the weather is uncertain. Should we close unexpectedly, we are not liable to compensate for any losses you may have incurred.




I'm planning a second visit. Do I have to sign the waiver again?


Nope! Once you sign a waiver, it is good for the whole summer at that location only.




Do I have to pay to watch from shore?


We are located at a public beach so all facilities on shore are free to use. Only those going directly on Hoopla Island are required to pay.




Are there lockers on site?


We do not have lockers available at this time. If you have keys or personal items that you want us to hold onto, feel free to leave them with our staff at the kiosk for safe-keeping.
