Second time taking this tour-same guide (Jim). Really great. Water was lower this trip, but Jim made the trip great, we did a lot more spinning, shooting close to the rocks. Great company- everything.... more

We did the 5-mile rafting tour. Richard was our guide and was awesome! They entertain you with their jokes on the entire bus ride to and from the river, so it keeps your mind off the winding road--which was very effective since I get motion sickness and didn't! Water was a good height, and Class II and III whitewater was great. Good intro for my son who's never been before, but he was ready for the 9-mile trip with IV and V by the end. Snack was provided, but they also have a tour with lunch. Stop for a snack and water or lemonade was enough for us. There was an opportunity to jump off a rock and another to get out of the raft to ride small whitewater, but it was a cold day so my son jumped off the rock and we stayed in the boat for the swim. If it had been a hot day, we would have both done it all for sure. Son wore a wet suit they provided, and they also had jacket and pants if you needed them. I did not. Although it was only in the 60's-70's, we warmed up in the sun on the water. Overall, a great ride, wonderful experience very organized group, felt safe with Richard. Would definitely go with this group again!
We had no pre conceived idea of what this would be like and WOW! That's the best way to sum it up. Our guide Calvin had 6 virgins in the raft ranging from 11 to 68 in age. Had we known it would be this fun we would have done the 9 mile trip. Calvin really did his best to allow us to experience the trip and put us in great position for each rapid we went through. He answered all our questions along with a bit of history about the area. The scenery is too beautiful to describe, but the rafting itself is something all on its own. It simply is a blast. It is the ultimate family trip for all. Regardless of what your inhibitions may be, don't let this stop you. DO IT! You won't regret it. Our guide Calvin made sure it was something that we will never forget and made a family memory. Ask for Calvin and let him treat you to a trip of a lifetime.
