Running the white water

First class service and experience, low water and still dramatic. We all felt valued in the raft and encouraged to participate. Most importantly we felt safe as "seniors"

What an amazing experience! No experience required, they give you everything you need plus a little comedy! They provide everything, cleaned, give plenty of safety instruction and you can purchase photos taken during your trek. All in all it was one of the best experiences on the water to date!
Excellent ride!
