Whitewater rafting has always been on my bucket list. So we had a chance to go this year for my birthday. Our guide Nick was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the river. If you ever get a chance to go ask for him... We did the mini trip as this was both our first time whitewater rafting. I would def go back and do the longer trip plus zip lining. This was certainly the best birthday I have had... Thanks to all the staff and Nick.. you were "Wicked"

We flew down from Canada in order to try white water rafting for first time. On October 3, 2017 we did section 3, because my wife was very nervous. We both had a great time. Our guide Ryan did a fantastic job -- he worked hard, was easy to get along with, had a great sense of humour, was VERY informative and it was obvious that for both him and his co-worker Nate that our safety was of the utmost importance. You should see these guys run with a raft over their heads...one raft for each of them. We had so much fun that we are contemplating going again next year to try section 4 and take on the level 4 & 5 rapids, and requesting Ryan to be our guide again. Thanks for making our entire vacation!! Even the supervisor was great... he told us about a waterfall to stop at on the way home, and we are so glad we did ... it was beautiful. A little addendum -- we were on the water for approx. 5 hours!

For the 60th birthday of our dear familymember, we booked section 4 wild water rafting.
Meetin and safety briefing were spot on (“we don’t compromise on your safety”) and guide Ryan is the man. He is fun, a master of the rapids and has a great sense of humor. We loved the entire experience including the lunch. Highly recommended!!!

Rafting with Wildwater was the highlight of our trip! Wildwater's team is exceptional to say the least. They focus on safety but certainly don't forget the fun! Nate was our guide, he was very knowledgeable about the river and shared a lot of information with us. We really valued his time, not only did he make our trip unforgettably fun but we also learned a lot from him. The provided lunch had variety and there was plenty of food to go around. The river is very clean, natural, and stunningly beautiful. This was a fantastic experience, we can't wait to do it again!

Thank Megan R
