You'll have to forgive me for not writing a review sooner because I can't for the life of me remember our guide's name (long blonde hair and only about 5'4") but what an awesome time! My wife, daughter and her friend and I took the float trip from their station in Marshall and truly enjoyed it. Our guide was laid back, very conscious of my wife's fears and by the time we finished we were ready for class IV experiences.
A word of advice though; even in August that water is very cold at 10am. Wait for the afternoon trips and the water will warm up a bit. I was the first one to jump into the water when our guide said we had time to float with our PFD's and I gotta tell 'ya it took my breath away.
Remember to tip your guide when you're done. They mostly make their rent money from the tips, and after our trip, I made sure he was tipped well. It was funny though when we went downtown to get some pizza and he walked in to pick up his pizza. He flat-out told us that our tip helped him to buy lunch.
We'll be back FBR!!
