Peaceful, relatively private alone time. Let the river do the work and sit back and relax. Perfect on a warm day, don't forget your sunscreen!

Can you take alcohol in the raft? Someone suggested that when they did it, they put a cold beverage in a closed container. Wondering if this is a common thing to do?

Response from River_Guides | Property representative |
Evening Canadian federal law does not allow alcohol open in any type of boat on water... and our company enforces that. The only time alcohol is allowed, is at our campsites and picnic areas ... and in moderation at... More
Is there an opportunity to stop half way for a lunch and swim? A coworker said they thought there were BBQ pits along the way where you can stop. Is that an option? Is there enough room in the rafts for coolers? And I know everyone will want to stop and swim too. Can you stop or do you have to wait until the end?
