Our trip was absolutely amazing. Zach and Amelia were fantastic. I have been white water rafting 10-15 times with various youth groups on different rivers. I love rafting and this experience was one of my favorites. Rapid Expedition is professional, funny, good natured, etc. I was in a raft with Zach and four of my students. Zach is by far... More

We took a group of students on this trip and it was amazing. Our guides, Zach and Amelia, were extremely skilled, safe, and fun! The company was great to work with and I would not hesitate to take another trip with them in the future.

We had an amazing time with our group! Amelia is the best! We went mid-end May and weather was great and the river was not crowed at all! So much fun!!!

Once again Dave Crawford has shown why he is such a great kayak instructor. He is extremely skilled and a great teacher. For me, he knows how to calm my jitters when I'm on more difficult water. He knows every play spot, boof rock, and line on the river...forwards and backwards! If you want to learn to kayak, Dave Crawford... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting and we are so glad we chose rapid expeditions! Zach and Tanner were awesome! They took the time to make sure we knew what we were doing and gave excellent descriptions of all the rapids and the surroundings. The trip was awesome, they took time to make sure we enjoyed it, they weren't... More

Went whitewater rafting this week with the fine folks at Rapid Expeditions. Captain Amelia was our guide and she was awesome. She had great real world knowledge of the river and the environment in general. She focused on safety of course, but it never distracted from the fun and the three kids with me, ages 16, 18 and 20, all... More

We really enjoyed our time on the river. The rapids are exciting, but at the same time we felt very safe. Prepare to be soaked, of course, but these are not the type of rapids where you are likely to fall out of the raft. There are about 15 rapids in all ranging from Class II-IV. There are also a...

We had a group of 7, and it was our first time rafting ever. Had an awesome experience, our guide Robin was the best! When I got home I discovered that my picture disk was blank. Spoke with Dave at Rapid Expeditions. He was apologetic and sent another disk with all of the pictures from our adventure on it. We... More

WOW! What a fantastic time that we had. Our guide,Amelia was amazing. She was humorous, informative comforting,and overall a wonderful guide for our first time rafting trip. There were other rafting companies out on the river at the same time as us, but they were not nearly having as much fun as us. Many of the other companies seemed to... More

This was my family's first trip white water rafting. I was a little apprehensive about the whole deal, but after we met our guide, Zach , I started feeling better. He knew all our names after a few minutes and gave us a lot of team spirit while skillfully guiding us down the river. Other boats were hitting some rocks... More
