This is our 2nd year in a row for this trip. We needed something that would accommodate kids aged 7 - 19, but keep all of them engaged. This was definitely it! The guides are knowledgeable and fun, the scenery is gorgeous, and the rapids...More

Family of 6 on spring break enjoyed the beautiful scenery and fun rafting. Milkman and Sandy and another guide(sorry I forget her name) helped us greatly after our boat feel victim to "battleship".Only criticism--please give guides communication devices!

We came in April because the dam was releasing everyday and the water would be high. We had the best guides; get Sandy or Milkman. Fun to be around. We gotta give Sandy props, she pulled 3 grown ups out of the water by herself....More

I have done the white water rafting myself but would like to take my kids age 5, 6, and 13. How does the pirate adventure differ from the traditional trip? Would it be boring for my 13 year old?
