My adventurous water-loving boys, ages 6 and 8 (both 60 lbs), LOVED rafting on our half-day whitewater trip with Patrick recently. They had huge smiles the whole time, and could not wait for more. After the trip, they said, "Can we go 5 more times?!?" Definitely would recommend this company...family friendly, kids can wear wetsuits to keep a bit warmer, the kids sit in middle so I felt better :), and the pics they take for us at one of the rapids locations are PRICELESS. :) The boys are STILL talking about that day!
