“Great Fun for Everyone - Really!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2010

The 1/2 day whitewater trip we recently took with our family was one of the highlights of our trip. It is about an 8-mile course with 3 class III rapids (depending on the time of year you do it.) We had 7 people in our raft. The guides were friendly and obviously very competent. Even though we were a very diverse group in terms of age and physical condition, this was something we could all enjoy. It is fun but not physically taxing. The minimum age is between 5 and 8 or so, depending on the time of year. No maxiumum age and few other physical requirements. As they told me, if you can get yourself in the raft, you can do it. Something I would absolutely recommend as a special event for anyone.

“Best raft guides ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

I've taken several raft trips over the last 15 years and my guides on this trip were the BEST! They know their stuff to keep you safe and having fun! We went in early June so the only option was a 1/2 day trip. We left wanting another 8 miles of river. Water is COLD this time of year so they gave us wetsuits and booties. As most river guides I've met over the years, these boys are young and handsome but they were very down to earth and friendly. Not aloof and obnoxiously cocky like I've experienced elsewhere. I can't wait to go on a multi-day trip with them next year!
