      The tunnel shoot was super fun. The entire trip was extremely, fun and full of excitement the entire day.
      Great family activity

      Our guide Mike was great! Took really good care of our family. Brownies at the end were a nice touch as well. Only thing that was weird was they wouldn’t return our cell phones to us when we got to the shuttle but made us wait until we got back to the drop off destination.

      I was looking for an adventurous outdoors activity to share with my two teenage sons. Rafting the middle fork of the American River was perfect! It was a great day of nature, exciting whitewater, learning how to stay in a raft, and great instruction and conversation with Devin, our guide.
      Once in a lifetime experience!

      The trip was amazing. Recommend everyone should at least try it once in their lifetime. The kids love it. Thank you Devon! You were funny and ensure our safety at the same time. We will definitely do it again next year.
      A great day on the river

      Our guide, Ben was phenomenal. He was very savvy re the rapids, took an interest in each person on our raft, and really looked out for our safety. The trip itself was very well organized with friendly & professional staff at every encounter. The rapids were thrilling & plentiful, even for a very experienced rafter as I am. Lunch was great. The only thing I didn’t like (& wasn’t prepared for) was when we had to disembark the raft and climb up (& then down) big rocks to avoid a dangerous rapid.
      Experience of a lifetime

      What a great adventure we had ! Beautiful scenic area and treacherous rapids! But your company made those rapids fun ! Our guide Nikki and all of your other employees were the best I’ve ever seen. And we saw many companies running the rapids that day. Their experience and their professionalism was so impressive and welcome. And their knowledge of the river was Absolutly amazing. The equipment and rafts used were newer and in tremendously better condition than the others on the river also. We will be back and soon. And when we do H2O is the ONLY company for us ! Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime !
