Worth every penny we spent on the activity. it is better to carry along some swimwear to wear beneath the wetsuit they provide. They provide a fleece jacket and another water proof one on top of it for the wind/Water. Helmets and Lifejackets complete... More

It was thrilling enough for my 14 year old sons and beautiful enough for the rest of the family. The guide was informative and fun. I would definitely recommend this trip and look... More

Went out twice in one week. The guides are exception; fun, experienced, informative. First time was August 17 and water was great. Second time only 4 days later and the water had dropped almost half! Was disappointed in that ride as I was expecting more, but in all fairness, the staff did tell us water levels had dropped. Still it... More

First time white water rafting, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Got in on short notice, staff were excellent and the trip was just long enough. Will be going again next time we're in town

Our guide Ryan was amazing--Knowledgeable, funny, and a very good guide. My kids had a blast and as this was their first time rafting, they have got the bug. We recommend this company and the rafting experience wholeheartedly!!!

I have been white water rafting a couple times previously, but this was by far the most "bang for your buck". There are lots of rapids that make it exciting,and not too scary so families are...

Great first time rafting with our two teenage boys. Our guide Dan was funny and ensured our safety yet challenged us to make sure we had experienced full on whitewater rafting! Great instruction and gear which kept us warm and comfortable. And bonus, we saw a bear on the riverbank who quickly ran away as soon as we approached. We... More
