Best caving experience ever. Makes you feel like you're kid again - everybody crawling through the mud, sliding down slippery rocks, experiencing complete darkness.....AMAZING!!! White water rafting is great for small children, not too scary but challenging enough. The guides are AWESOME and they have lots of interesting stories to tell.

Mike was a great guide. He was very knowledgable and could answer all of our questions. He took me, my 12 yr old daughter and my teenage son back to Dracula's beach in the cave. Safety was always the primary concern and Mike knew various routes and options that we could travel through the cave. I would definitely do this... More

Being it was our first time rafting and we had our 7 year old daughter with us it was a great combination of excitement and relaxation! My daughter was scared to begin with and sat inside by our guide, Pete, but by the end he had her comfortable and she was paddling through the rapids sitting right on the edge!... More

Retired and wanted to relax. We took the canoe ride and it was not only relaxing, it was beautiful! We laughed, splashed and took pictures along the way. The guys were so nice, informative and dependable. Plan to take a longer trip next time.

We took the teens group from our church up to Boone for a day of tubing. It was a last minute change of location and this was truly a divine change. The staff was knowledgeable in all the details of the adventure and was helpful with getting us signed in quickly and relieving anxieties about the level of the water.... More

I can't even describe how incredible it was to see all the formations in the cave. It was like we were on another planet. At first we weren't sure about what we were getting in to though. It was just before our meeting time at 10:00 when a well loved car with a kayak on top came zipping into the... More

guides arrived at center after our 10am arrival time. while 12 of us were there at 9:45 ready to fill out required paperwork for caving adventure, we waited until another 6 showed up at 10:45am due to car issues! Once on the road, guides were informative, but distracted as they needed to be back for those who had double booked... More

As a first time caver/white water rafter, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, my partner and I had an excellent experience! Our guides: Wes, Charlotte, and Jim were all very friendly and knowledgeable. Not only did they ensure the safety of all participants, they took the time to provide funny anecdotes and stories about the cave/river. Overall, it was... More

I can't imagine having a better experience - Mike has to be the best guide ever.- besides a river guide, he could have a career as a comedian. the water was cool but refreshing, felt very safe in the rapids due to Mikes experience. did the 1/2 day and was a first timer. Class II and III rapids. I am... More
