We had two Whitewater Express staff members come to our little town to teach kids how to kayak this week. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable crew and they were fantastic with kids.

We participated in zip lining. Though the second portion wasn't my idea of a rainforest (lol), the trip across the river MORE than made up for it. I suggest you take your phone for great photos and snaps. I was able to capture some amazing...More

Nice two hour trip down the river with some challenging rapids but nothing too bad. Young teens loved it, and guide Blue was awesome. Definitely recommend.

no place for the kids to swim but you could easily find a spot to set up for a picnic....not right at whitewater express but on the grassy areas.....
Three kids 10, 11 & 15. First time rafting and I want it to be an awesome positive experience! Think they might freak if they fall out of the raft so will they be okay in the "Classic" or should I book the "Family" trip?
