The river was not very deep... however, the entire route is rocky so need to be careful while rafting and try to dodge the rocks for a smooth rafting experience. Co-ordination is the key. You take your boat on your own and there are 4 guides on kayaks among approx. 40 rafts. Initially we were little scared, but once we... More

I was very excited for this adventure. I have to say, the preparation and check in went very smoothly. In our personal group there were five of us. Overall, there were 50 people that participated in our event. Once the buses took us down to the river for boarding, we realized how crowded it really was. For over 50 people,... More

Very organized and tons of fun! I took my 15 yr old daughter and 3 friends and we all had a blast. It was like being back in camp. The guides are tons of fun and encourage cheering and water fights between the boats. It was a bit pricey, but considering it was a very full day with lunch included... More

Let me start off by saying everybody had a good time on our trip. I was traveling with my two nieces ages 10 and 14. One had been white water rafting just one other time, and for the other it was her first time. I had been white water rafting several times in places like Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska, So... More

This was at least my 6th time rafting in my adult life. We couldn't have picked a better day to go, despite the rain and overcast. It was a dam release day, plus the water was running high due to recent rains. We filled a raft with 6 people, ages 11 through 50. If you like adventure and thrills, this... More

So everything was pretty straightforward for Dam release gorge checkin, only a little irritated with the wait time from ticket time 1115 to actual raft time 1230, if I had known I wouldve gotten something to eat before we left! Raft guides were awesome!!!! I say that with exception of Jason who seemed like we were all in his way... More

There were four of us. Initially we thought there will be a professional guide for each raft to guide us. But no, there were just 4 guides for the whole pack. There were so many hurdles at the beginning. 2 of us fell down on a rapid. Our raft got stuck between the rocks. Thanks to the guides, they were... More
