Great fun! Good guides, knowledgeable, helpful, gave us more than we had hoped for!

I was very nervous about the trip because I have trouble with my knees and am not very sure footed nor am I very stable on my feet. They helped me any way they could to make my experience fantastic!

Everyone was super friendly, the adventure lasted all day, lunch was part of the package, and it was a blast cruising down the river and rapids with our experienced and fun(ny) guide (Thanks, Derek!).
