Mike runs a great company! Safety of his guests is top priority. The guides are fantastic. This company won't disappoint you. Although they are smaller than the 'big box' companies, that's a plus in my book. Customized, interactive experiences are his specialty.

DRE absolutely does it right. They are smart and don’t rush to make a buck. It’s all about your experience and making sure your family or group are safe while doing it. We highly recommend DRE.

This was a fun experience for our whole family. The guides did a great job and Mike was helpful and entertaining! The small group (only 2 boats) felt more cozy and personal compared to the other large outfits. I would highly recommend Dead River expeditions...More
