During the Labor Day weekend, we visited Big Creek Expeditions with our 5 & 8 year old in tow. The staff was great! Emily was our guide, and she did a great job not only as the Captain of our raft but also interacting with the kids. The lower was just right for our family, as our 5 year old loved it and it was riveting enough for my 8 year old. It also satisfied my wife and I with having the kids in the raft for the first time. I must say that I have been on several rafting trips before, but I had never surfed in a rapid before and Emily made it happen! Again, a great trip and a great value for your money. I can't wait for next year!
