Start with an optional mudslide and a zodiac ride along the river and past rocky shoals. Then the tide comes in and the seascape changes quickly! Blast through the waves and run against the tide. This is very fun but you get wet and it...More

If you go to their website it will give you a full breakdown of the tides; as for seniors rates, I would give their 1-800 # a call. if no seniors rates, you'll still get a great exchange on your US$ :-)
