“White water Rafting Half Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We went on the coldest day of the year but still had a blast the guides were awesome(Timmy and Matt). We got a history lesson, geography info and saw lots of wildlife such as a bald eagle, buck, blue herons and canadian geese. I would recommend this to everyone of all ages my kids(8 and 12) had an amazing memorable trip!!

“first time rafting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Experienced guides with entertaining stories, jokes and interesting history provided along the way. The rapids were SO much fun. The guide keeps you on track and talks you through what to do. Everyone has a paddle and a job to do!!! You then get to float easy in between the rough parts and enjoy the beautiful scenery (as long as you don't get motion sickness because you rock and spin a bit during the slow parts- Don't drink too much the night before...) Highly recommended.

“Rafting Adventure 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

September 11,2012 went white water rafting for the first time with FBRE . We were worried the water would be too low, but just right for some fun and even a few thrills. We had Richard for our guide and he was funny and very informative about rafting and the river. We always felt safe and had a great time. The meal was great ! Food always tastes better outside ! We saw a doe and two fawns and an eagle. It was a wonderful crisp day and I would love to go back and do the 9 mile with this company.
