Great raft trip!

Went on the 4 hour trip solo and had a great time. The guide never lost control of the situation and was knowledgeable on the history of the area as well. Will definitely come back some time.

Great rapids, great guides, well organized. My husband and I had a great time doing the class 4 rapids. A few people did fall out but they were quick and efficient to get them safe and sound in a raft. They also had a quick safety talk that gives you all the info you need to have fun:) definitely recommend and can’t wait to go again!
Fun,fun, fun
