we did the rafting yesterday, and it was really awesome, and worth every penny. Cody was our guide and he was just so awesome and was a real plus to the experience of the whole adventure, if you intend to do this, try to see if you can get cody to be your guide, you will have no regrets

A beautiful day outdoors with our family members of multiple generations. We zip-lined in the misty wooded mountains with confidence thanks to our safety-focused guides. The oldest to the youngest of us experienced the thrill of flying through the trees. Then we went rafting on the river with the fun-loving and expert river guides. A special shout-out to our most...

My family of 6 did the lower pigeon float and had a blast. Our guide, Ben, was great. Had tons of funny/corny jokes and was super patient during our 3 year old's tantrum. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. The hubs and I want to do the upper rafting trip. Awesome place!

Wow! This is the most amazing rafting experience ever! Everyone was very friendly and professional. Our guide Cristina was knowledgeable and funny. Here are some tips: Don't put children in the front seats as they have to row and may become overwhelmed once the waves hit them in the face. Wear water shoes. There are no lockers. You must leave...

We rafted with KP a couple of days ago. It was our first time rafting. My 9 year old son was a bit nervous and KP was wonderful with him. Not only was he very professional, but he made us laugh the whole time. He is very knowledgeable about the area and told us all about the different trees, etc.... More
