We had a fabulous experience and would recommend it as it was amazing fun. We had a little hiccup as I fell in but the instructor were there to help me and as the safety briefing was clear and professional I was soon back in the raft for the next ride down. A big thank you too both the instructor's that helped me.

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left, EVERYONE at the centre were welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. We have in,previous years tried to do things we wouldn’t normally do as a family (horse riding, zip wire etc). This was by far the best activity we have ever done for a number of reasons; 1) It grabbed the attention and entertained the whole family 2) when you consider the wetsuits, vehicles to the start point, expert tuition, boat, showers, training and safety gear etc are all inclusive in the price, it is great value for money. 3) when you go to a theme park and pay for a ride photo it starts at £10. The lady taking the photos for us charged £25 and we got 103 amazing photos. A special mention to Elmo our instructor. The best instructor we have had, or could have. Diligent, funny, relaxed, great instruction and included everyone. Thank you team we had a great time and will return.

Amazing day white water rafting! Fantastic experience with the family. The instructor George was brilliant from the start. Safety briefing was clear and understandable but also fun and engaging. We were lucky with a warm day and fewer people on the river. Such a great laugh navigating down the river and George spurred us on the whole way. Thoroughly recommend!!
