We did the float trip in early August as we had a 7 year old with us that did not meet the minimum weight for the rapids. Kids (ages 11, 9, 7) had fun and Tanner was a great guide. He let the kids jump in a couple of times to swim and let the kids ride up front of... More

This was our first time rafting. There were 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 teenagers. This company was a pleasure to work with right from the beginning. The guides were funny, and knowledgeable. The rafting itself was so much fun. This was the best thing we did on our vacation bar none and definitely the best value!! The... More

I have done white water rafting once before on a gentler river but this was the best. One because the river has so many rapids to enjoy, and second because of our guide Zak. He kept it fun and adventurous the whole way. My favorite part was the move where we were facing upstream and the rapid just kept flowing... More

This company is perfect for families with small children. Zack was an amazing guide who truly knows how to make it a memorable trip. For a great time go with rapid expeditions!

What a fantastic trip!!! There were 6 of us 3 adults and 3 children. With so many companies to choose from, smaller is definitely better. Dave quickly responded to my email prior to booking the trip with questions I had. We had Zach as a guide who was very entertaining, but scored serious points when he literally gave the long...

This was our first whitewater experience and won’t be our last. We chose Rapid Expeditions because of the recommendations and I emailed them to find out if they would let our family of 5 have a raft to ourselves. The larger companies said they would add 2 people with our family which we did not want. Our guide Tony said... More

Dave and his staff were wonderful! They went out of their way from the reservation to the end of the trip to ensure that my family of 9 felt welcomed and had fun! Our seven children span from ages 9-16 and they all had a wonderful time. Our guides, Dave and Tony did a great job and really made sure... More

We booked our trip with Rapid Expeditions based on feedback from others on Trip Advisor. I have to say I'm so thankful we did. Our family of 5 (16,14 & 8) had an awesome experience! Our guide, Zach, was fun, entertaining, enthusiastic and kind. I felt totally safe & confident in his skills as our guide. The other staff was... More

We chose this smaller company over the larger guys after reading the reviews on this site. We made the right decision. The larger companies boats are packaged to capacity and barely have 15 ft between boats travelling down the river. Rapid Expeditions had no more than 6 in our boat and we had plenty of room between boats. We even... More
