Can't say enough about this helpful, informative, professional organization. They answer every question as if it's the first time they heard it, try to help plan around (inevitable!) weather issues, make recommendations, and make you feel so okay with spending $$$ for this fun event. Very flexible and understanding. I spoke to different staff numerous times and each gave off the impression that they just wanted my family to enjoy ourselves on the river. And so, we did!

Very pleased. Professional and friendly. Exceeded expectations! On the phone they helped us plan the right trip for our needs and once we arrived the check-out and check-in were efficient. The equipment was well-maintained.

A very relaxing and enjoyable day. Everyone from check in, set up, shuttle ride to returning equipment was friendly and knowledgeable. The tubes were comfortable and the ride was relaxing with a few rapids to keep it interesting. Nothing unsafe or intimidating. I want to go back and do the kayaking adventure next.Perfect "social distancing" fun for all.
