  • Thanks for a great rafting trip! The pre-trip info and directions were great. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our guide, Flocks, was awesome. He was knowledgeable about the river and area and made the morning fun and exciting. Ben took some great photos.
  • Very friendly boatsmen. Clean clothes. Nice conversation while rafting. Very careful and safe rafting. Look out for discounts. If you bring 10 people 20% discount. It may change in future
