First time white water rafting ever and what a way to do it with the wonderful crew at River Rats! Even for first timers like me the Grade 5 waterfalls were amazing fun. We were apparently one of the first to tumble over on the first waterfall but it was the best way to get wet!

Such an incredible time. Was honestly terrified as I had never done white water rafting but it's so worth it and I would definitely do it again. Amazing hosts, and the waterfall was the best part!

What an experience! Super friendly staff with a great sense of humour. The scenery was beautiful and the 7 metre drop down the waterfall was such a thrill. I would definitely do it again.
