“River Rafting, skykomish river.”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

They offer you a class 5 rapid, which they do not run. At most it is class 3. And when we arrived at bolder drop, they just run around it on the river. No excitement what so ever. Not worth 80$, maximum I would have paid is about 45$ for that run.

Sorry you were disappointed with your trip. The river level on the day of your trip was 9,700 cfs a very high water level and to dangerous to run the ledge wave in Boulder Drop Rapid with the crews we had that day (non swimming). We elected to run the line called the Mercy Chute still rated class 4-5 by the experts. Sometimes my guides make that run look to easy as appears to be the case here. Our only other option would have been to cancel the trip as 4 members of the other group could not swim and 2 were poor swimmers. Alpine Adventures takes pride in our guides and there abilities to keep our clients as safe as possible.
