I am 59 and went on this with my husband and many more from our group. Climbing down the ladder to the water for me was the worst. I almost turned around but the guide took my vest, my oar and held my hand while I went down on my bum! The objective is getting to the water, how doesn't have to be poetic!
Once in the raft we headed out and I felt so safe in the hands of our guide. I will never forget the "paddle, paddle" and looking over into a deep hole of water! He maneuvered us with no problems and we would go to the sides so we could watch the other rafts go through.
This is the most fun you can have with your pants on!!
At the very end when he told us about the many whirlpools in this area and to hang on - I fell out! The guide had me back in the boat so fast I didn't really know what happened.
Thank you guides for letting me push myself and create memories I will always treasure!
