Awesome family adventure
River rafted for the first time along with my 13yr old son. Guide Ryan was fantastic and explained everything needed for safety along with a very light hearted personality. Great family experience and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.

Rafting with Mike
Aug 2021
Mike was a great rafting guide. We had so much fun and had lots of laughs. They also had super cute dogs on their property (Charlotte). Ask Mike to be your guide, he will let you go down the rapids backward.
