We had a great time rafting with Judo as our guide! He was very knowledgable about local wildlife and nature, which was an added bonus as we floated down the river. It's hard to find something that everyone (teenagers) in the family likes to do on vacation, but this definitely leaves everyone happy! It was our our second time on... More

We were paired with Miami John for our first family rafting trip. He was an awesome guide. We were a little nervous because we selected the more adventurous trip, but he kept us in the boat and attacking the rapids. Come prepared because we had some time between rapids to tell jokes and we were fresh out. He kept us... More

Went white water rafting with my son and cousin this morning and Stanley was our guide. He was very kind and knowledgeable of the area and provided us with numerous trails to explore. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you, Stanley and SMO!
