Great rafting trip. My wife, son, and I went for a half day and had a great time. Beautiful wilderness, great river, and awesome guides. Think we'll make this an annual summer event.

Our family rafting trip with 4 adults and 4 kids (4, 7, 8, 13) was simply perfect! Not too short, not too long, not too scary with the kiddos, but just scary enough. Guides were professional and courteous. Lunch was amazing.

Makayla was a great guide! Fun first trip (ever) for me, would definitely raft again! This was my first time rafting so I was pretty nervous. The guides were very experienced and helpful and made for a really fun trip.

We had a fantastic day on the river. Our guide was wonderful, the food was delicious, and our 7-year-old can’t wait to go again next year.
