“Brilliant even though it was snowing!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I went with some friends for a half day white water rafting trip in the middle of February as something to do on the weekend. It was freezing cold but we were pretty toasty once all wrapped up in our wet suits and paddling away. It was far too much fun and we were all so glad we did it.
After hearing about our corporate multi activity packages I will definitely organise some company team building later in the year.

Hello Droopy-Gillespie

Thank you for the review, and we are very pleased that you were comfortable in what was certainly cold conditions.

It has been a great start to the year with awesome weather, cold but sunny.

Look forward to seeing you later in the year with your corporate group and providing some meaningful team building ;-)

All the best

“Water rafting”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Took the kids white water rafting. They had a fantastic day and great weather helped. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only dislike was the wet suit my son had been given stunk of very bad BO ! Think they could improve by checking the suits for bodily sweat before handing out again .

Hi Elly

Thank you for your feedback I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us.

My sincere apologies for your son, it is totally unacceptable I cant stand stinky equipment. One of the used suites must have gone back into circulation before being cleaned. Please get in touch with me directly and we will sort that out for you.

Our wetsuits are sterilised after every trip and air dried which is the best way to keep them odour free as drying rooms encourage smelly bacteria from the warm conditions and the harsh drying makes the neoprene brittle so the suites are not as effective. We have significantly more wet suites than we require so there is time for them to dry before being reused. Occasionally in busy times some suits may not be fully dry before they go out again but they are clean and odour free.

This wet summer being quite a challenge to provide dry wetsuits but on the other hand superb warm white water rafting conditions!

Kind regards

Jim Davis

Hi David,

Thank you for taking the time out to give a review, glad you had a great day out. Yes the weather has been a little unpredictable of late, recently spoilt with the showing of the most amazing rainbow I have ever seen in Glenerney!

All the best from Jim & the Team @ Ace

“Great fun!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We went on the rafting day trip and had so much fun - the landscape is just stunning, the rafting tour was super exciting. We had never done any rafting before but the tour guides gave a detailed introduction before even getting into the boat. Before starting, we did some excercises in calmer water and during the trip the guides always gave very clear instructions on what to do - so that even bigger drops were great fun as you knew exactly what to do. Besides the rafting, we jumped of some rocks and went swimming, sunny weather did the rest!

“Well worth the drive”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

On holiday in Fort Augustus, my son and I were looking for adventure. This was an hour and a half from where we were staying but definitely worth the drive and the money all the staff were very experienced and friendly. On our 1st day we went canyoning and tubing with an 8m cliff jump this was great, very exhilarating. My partner who is pregnant was unable to join us in the activities but the staff made her feel just as part of the group as we were and showed her the tracks along the river so she could watch us and not miss out on the experience. On the second day we went kayaking this was great my partner wasn't able to view all of this activity but the staff pointed her in the direction of a fantastic cafe while she waited. I can't rate the staff enough they have a world of experience between them Mike and Jake were our main instructors over the 2 days with other guides (sorry I cant remember names) but they really made the experience memorable and safety is their 1st priority!!! We'll be back next year guys can't wait!
