Hubby and I REALLY enjoyed our rafting adventure on one of the damn release days. The whole group of adventurers smiled the whole time. Some of the adventurers who had gone before had water guns, etc and next time we will make sure we bring some. It added to the fun! One of the guides, Elise, was really nice and we enjoyed talking to her on the bus ride to the starting point. The other staff members were equally pleasant and really worked hard to provide us with a good time. While it is a lot of paddling, we did not feel that it was too difficult for beginners. If there was any caution it would be that if you are taking children, you need to make sure that the boat has adequate amount of adults otherwise if the kids cannot reach the water with their paddles or are not strong enough to continuously paddle then you will either go nowhere fast or you will be doing a lot of work on your own. Even if you think your child can handle it, I would caution you.
