I had wanted to take my husband on a whitewater trip, and love going ziplining myself, so this package made for a fun day for the both of us, and was a great value, too.
JT was our whitewater raft guide, and along with his joking and fun personality, he also filled us in on some of the local lore and landmarks. We had fun sharing a smaller raft with one other couple, and with only one other larger family raft in our flotilla. The half day rafting is an excellent introduction for families with smaller children, or folks that aren't strong swimmers. The whitewater for the half day in August is fun without being too intense (high water spring time may be a different story!). The water was a pleasant temperature, and there are a couple calm areas on the river, where the guides let you get out to swim/float in the river, or practice your raft balancing. The company provides booties, wetsuits (as needed) and helmets, so no need to bring a lot of extra gear other than dry clothes towels and proper water shoes if you don't like the booties. They also have a resident photographer to capture some excellent shots of your experience on the river. You can buy individual photos, but the best deal is to get the full CD of all shots. (SEE EXAMPLE in PHOTOS)
The zip course was also fun, with 4 ziplines (to date) plus a short rope ladder bridge (which was probably the only part of the course I DIDN'T particularily enjoy, being the chicken I am!). Nicole and one of the guys were our guides, and were sympathetic but encouraging to some of the other folks in our group who were intitially fearful of their first zipline experience. I happy to say that everyone conquered the full course! The company also provided water bottles and extra water along if you forgot your own. If the day is a scorcher and you do the afternoon zip, it is a good idea to bring along at least one liter of water per person, as the mountain area where the course is can be fairly dry and warm.
