We had a 15 year old and an 11 year old and we all had a blast! Our guide Frank kept us laughing, made it extra fun and made sure we were safe the entire time. Our pictures turned out great too. We finished our trip and immediately wished we could do it again. We would definitely recommend it.

My husband and son went on a trip this past week and had a blast with their guide Jay. They were in a small raft with just the three of them, which allowed for lots of personal instruction and fun stops along the way. I liked the ease of booking online and e-mail communication/information regarding the trip. We also purchased... More

Being from the Midwest and after talking to several friends about white water rafting, this was the rafting company all my friends recommended. I've been on several rafting adventures and this one was one of the best. The staff and river guides are fantastic. If you go, ask to have Jay as your guide. This guy can put the raft... More

We were surprised how YOUNG our tour guides were, but they seemed to know what they were doing, and were very friendly. The main regret we have is that they advised us not to take our phones/cameras because we may lose them in the rapids. Truth is that the rapids were not that wild, and we easily could have taken...
