No real rapids to speak of at the time we were there. We ran the river as part of a family reunion activity and we had fun because we made it fun but the river run itself was a disappointment. You could get out at times and swim (or float next to the raft) if you wanted (if the water wasn't too cold for your tastes) because the rafts go really slow for most of the trip. Better to check as to when the river would be running high and fast to get some "white" water to really make it a fun ride. Check with several sources (we did not check several sources) about the time of year that the river is full or high so that you are not disappointed if you want a real whitewater river run and not a slow boat to China or whatever.
