I had never been whitewater rafting before, but am an experienced at canoeing and have been on many trips, and had been wanting to go whitewater rafting for a long time. I went with my sister and her family and had an incredible experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, safe and wonderful with my sister's two small, very active children. On one of the rapids, I was flung from the boat and became stuck underneath the bottom of the boat in a class II rapid for a minute or so. This was a very scary experience for me. However, the guide not only in boat, but guides in other boats helped calm me down, saw to my personal safety and health and made me feel alright again. In spite of this scare, I still had a blast and would completely do this again. I can recommend this to anyone with some paddling experience in canoe or kayak, if you've never been in a boat of any kind before, I'd say proceed with caution. But don't let that dissuade you, the guides are very experienced and will help you learn quickly. This is a great experience to see Cumberland Falls and the Cumberland in a new way. I'm a thrill seeker and this definitely gave me the thrills I was looking for, while also helping me learn something new. I can't wait to go whitewater rafting again, and will 100% come back to Sheltowee Trace Outfitters and recommend them to everyone I know. They run like a well-oiled machine, and provide customers with a thrilling, fun experience where safety is first and the customer is also first. One of the best times I have ever had. I got to bond with my niece and nephew and my sister and her husband, and we made memories that will last a lifetime. Bathrooms available only on boat that picks you up and at Cumberland falls, otherwise, your at the mercy of nature.
