The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. I felt very confident about the safety of all of the kids on board. The only downside was the terrible weather but we still had a good time despite being rained on. I would use this company again.

My family and I had a blast on our white water rafting trip. Our guide Lindsey was so fun and made us feel comfortable right away. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat if we didn't live so far away!
