I went white water rafting here for the first time ever with a group of friends and had a wonderful day. It was a well planned, fun filled day with an incredible, energetic and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this activity for everyone.

Our first time going rafting. Chose Wilderness for the Express trip. It was amazing! Better then we expected. It was freezing out and they offered us wetsuits at no extra charge. The guides were awesome. So friendly and skilled. We will be back next summer!
