This place is sketchy. I bought a WHITEWATER groupon. We got to the "meeting point" and it is literally a dirt pull off on the side of the road, not even big enough for all the cars. They caravaned us to a second pull off to park cars, packed us into 1980's RV and serial killer van and drove to... More

We made arrangements for the trip months ahead of time and were emailed a rendezvous address. We spoke with the owner the day before our trip and while he told us we would be in for a float instead of whitewater he did not mention a change in location. Morning of the trip, we arrive (after 2 hours of driving)... More

This company is a scam. Made my reservation for 5 people back on June - saw a great deal on Groupon. I had even spoke with Captain Dave on the phone prior to our trip and the day before I trip. I received email confirmation as to the location we would be meeting. 15 minutes after our supposed meeting time... More

We received a 2 mile, 1.5 hour, Skagit river float viewing eagles in an unheated raft, with no lunch. I believe we ended up with the Mini Bald Eagle Float even though we paid for... More

In March, 2015, I "booked" a float trip in on the Chilkat River with these folks for the morning of June 16, 2015. We received an 'e-ticket' via email confirming the date and telling us what time to expect the shuttle to collect us. Well, the day before the trip was scheduled, June 15th, I got a call from someone... More

Well what shall we say. We booked a 3-hour whitewater trip on the Upper Skagit with Dave online. It turned out to be everything else than adventurous and stole us 5 hours - instead of 3... The promised lunch was some berries and cookies - which were kindly prepared for greatgrandma's teeth by the river water. But let's start at... More
