It all started with the ride to the entrance point. Just being well organized. The staff was talkative and kept you entertained. Had you laughing from the beginning. The trip on the river was great and never had a full moment.

We had a great time rafting and our guide Zack was awesome! He deserves 5 stars for sure! The only reason I'm giving 4 is because the website says they take pictures and no pictures were taken. I'm a bit disappointed about that, but I...More

Guides were wonderful. My young daughter was afraid and the water was "refreshingly" chilly. Our guide held our boat back from the water fights and splashing until my daughter got into the fun. Great first time white water experience. Do the jumping rock! It is...More
