This was our first time rafting. We are a family with 2 teenage sons. We are from Florida so all of us are good swimmers which turned out to be a good thing. The river was high as there had been a lot of rain. We were well protected against the elements with wet suits, helmets and life preservers. The... More

This rafting trip was amazing. The staff was super and very attentive. They ensured safety and attention to detail. They allowed us to go cliff jumping, swimming in the lake and sliding through the rapids. It was VERY enjoyable.

You can stop debating and looking. This is the company you choose. Great equipment, safety first, personality, and price! It's a young crew, but with a mature sense of safety and adventure. They ride the line perfect. I loved our guide Frank. And we have great memories as our souvenirs. Only suggestion... Please include water as well as the juice... More

While the rapids were quite challenging, our guide Frank explained clearly (in good English!) what to expect and emphasized the safety measures. We had optimal water level in July which is quite rare and made for such a thrilling ride. The staff really took care of all of us. Our teens loved the cliff jumping! Everyone was awed by the...
