We had an amazing rafting trip. The water was super cold but we all wore wet suits so it was perfect. Our guide, Justin, was awesome. He was very thorough and funny. The whole adventure was fantastic. Thanks from Ann and Charles from Texas.

Doc was a great guide. Very informative. Took the scenic float with a reluctant teen who ended up loving it. Highly recommend.

Yes we start rafting trips in May and run through September. In the early season we have everyone wear wetsuits, fleece, and splash jackets so you will stay warm.
