As the first Chinese guests, Don and Debra welcomed us with the utmost kindness and fun rafting experience. Don is a very knowledgeable guy with a great voice. (he sings beautifully). I highly recommend to anyone who likes to go rafting. You won't regret it.

Great family-friendly place. They were very accommodating of my 91 year-old mother and she love the trip. The guide was great and told stories and sang the whole time as well as giving us great historical and geological information. Not hardcore but great for families.

We have rafts for 6, 8, and 10. Larger groups like multiple rafts, they can take pictures of each other and have water fights.

No wetsuits here, and none are needed. The rapids aren't very extreme and the water temp is pleasantly cool, not too cold. I'd never wear a wetsuit here.
