Boating season is upon us at Lake Tiorati, but the lake water is still very cold!
Even though the Park allows boating , it may not be safe. Cold water can cause death if you are not properly prepared. Please read this article on cold water safety before you use any boats at Thendara.

Please, don’t take out a boat without the proper equipment and taking proper precautions.
