Great family-friendly place. They were very accommodating of my 91 year-old mother and she love the trip. The guide was great and told stories and sang the whole time as well as giving us great historical and geological information. Not hardcore but great for families.

No wetsuits here, and none are needed. The rapids aren't very extreme and the water temp is pleasantly cool, not too cold. I'd never wear a wetsuit here.
