We had an excellent experience with this company in July. Highly recommend them. We took the 2 hour raft trip. You can get wet if you go swimming so make sure to have dry clothes ready when you get back.

Yes we start rafting trips in May and run through September. In the early season we have everyone wear wetsuits, fleece, and splash jackets so you will stay warm.
