Our first time whitewater rafting was an amazing experience!! I am a single mom who took my three teenage kiddos for an outdoor adventure. We chose the Hold Rush level 2-3 rapids for our first time. Our guide Eric was extremely thorough and clear and the directions! We were able to take each rapid with confidence and enthusiasm! We are hooked! Can’t wait to go back and try the long and more difficult levels. Our guide Eric encouraged us and took care of us throughout the experience way beyond my expectations. It was truly an awesome experience in working together as a family and feeling so accomplished in a new kind of adventure together!
