The rafting guides very friendly, welcoming & knowledgeable. I enjoyed every moment of it!! A complementary beer was offered after the rafting, which made the whole experience better.

Got out there opening day for my 9 year olds birthday party and it was the best birthday ever! Weather wasn’t great but the excellent gear kept us warm. Carmen and Ryan were unbelievably helpful! Couldn’t have had a better experience.

Very well ran rafting and staff were professional, did the whole day rafting and thoroughly enjoyed. All wetsutes etc were provided (and plenty of sizes available). Lunch was yummy. A few too many cheesy jokes, but it helped set the fun for the day.
