We were lucky with the weather as it was very sunny and warm. This meant that the wet clothes and hair dried quickly. Don't think you are going to stay dry! The impressive thing for me was the control the driver had over the boat. He took it to within 6 inches of the canyon wall whilst doing 50 km/hr and managed to park the boat in a gap in the rocks after doing a 180 turn in the river. It was like the scene from the Blues Brothers. We flew over the rapids at about 80km/hr and did 360 turns that covered us in water, even the driver was getting soaked. Yes its costly and yes there may be rival boats in other places but this is the original and frankly the best.
