I'm sorry to hear you had a negative experience on our River Bugs session. If you would like to call the office we'd like to offer you an alternative activity with a different instructor.

What a fantastic experience and adventure, I’ll definitely be going again! The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and great fun. But on a serious note, their experience and safety awareness were second to none - I trusted them implicitly. Can’t recommend them highly enough!

U will have to ask at the white water office if they have a max. age limit however, my dad is a fit 66 years old and thoroughly enjoyed it. So in my opinion a fit 70 year old is more than capable.

Not really but there are places you can access the river as the photographer from the rafting place comes down on a mountain bike taking photos.
