Easy to find river destination. Thanks to attractions like this three women and a preteen can book a water rafting adventure and have a remarkable journey together. Thumbs up to the corny jokes that made our young man smile.

Great experience. Went in Nov. in a group of 7, ranging in ages of 12 - 67. Beautiful scenery. Great guides who were very experienced and knowledgable, and FUN! Started with a lesson then a few small zips to get the hang of it, (sorry, couldn't resist.). Then on to the long runs that were spectacular. All of us wanted... More

Me and my wife did this during our short trip. It was great and did more zipping than I actually expected. One of the lines was 1100 feet and the longest you can have using a hand brake. So fun! Guides were great with everything, good humor and beautiful scenery. We will be going again!

We have been white water rafting in several places, but this one was particularly beautiful. You have to time it right to get the maximum effect of the fall foliage, but we were lucky enough to do so. The company is extremely well run, with friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable guides who make the experience even better. If you're in the... More

My husband and I went to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and had the best time! Many thanks to Korey and Mitch for sharing their love of what they do and to Peter and Alec for all the laughs (who knew safety could be so much fun). Unless you're allergic to a good time - zip, raft or both with... More

Ok so I'm a wimp...not happy about it but always been a self preservationist since a child. On this vacation I decided to face a few fears. Now I know these aren't the most treacherous rapids to be found but as a first timer and a wimp:) I had built up this fear that was happily discarded once on the... More

We had second thoughts when we saw predictions of 28 degree weather for our trip but we went anyways. Our river guide Shawn offered us the option of a wetsuit and/ or splash gear when we arrived. We went with the splash gear over a fleece coat and hiking shorts. Shawn was very thorough in his pre float safety instruction... More

The guide, Cory, was fabulous and we had a great time. Special water gear, pants and jacket were provided to put over our own clothes. The directions and expectations were spelled out exactly as we experienced. The lunch was delicious! Too much fun.
