It was our first time rafting and we had a great experience! The guides are knowledgeable about the area and how to maneuver the low river! Justin was a fabulous guide!

Had an outstanding time. Elliot was our guide. Great guy. Knew his stuff. Was patient. If I could give him greater than a 10 out of 10 I would. My wife and I are 60 and we enjoyed this tremendously.
