We had the most amazing experience, the laughs, the stories, not what I expected. Gav made the trip worthwhile, he had so much life experience & knowledge to share. From giving it a good paddle to cruising down the taking in the views. It’s a memory that will last a lifetime. You have a good one there with Gav, & the Irish guy he has a few wise cracks as we’re getting prepped before getting started. You have a lovely team. The views are amazing. If I come back🤞 Gav is our man. Beautiful soul

Our groups had the honor to be on Gav’s team, he kept the tour fun and was full of information regarding the natural history of the river. The trip was amazing, thanks Gav!

This was such a fun day with awesome crew - from the instructions and gear check to the transportation and rafting - 10/10 would recommend! My friends and I had high hesitations because it was a cold and rainy morning but we are so happy we did it! The crew was reassuring, educational and so much fun!

I booked this with my three adult sons on our four day trip and did not know what to expect. It turned out to be one of the top highlights of our trip. We arrived early to avoid any hassle which there was none of staff were super friendly they told us we had time if we wanted to walk around which we did at the beautiful lake there. When it was time the guides were easy to follow with their information on how to suit up and were very funny had people laughing through out his explanation. Once we're at the river we were paired up with our guide Gav who made the trip great again another funny guy always smiling and making jokes, you could tell he has been doing this for awhile and new exactly where to raft would be going and made sure everyone in the boat was wet. It was an absolute blast and highly recommended our guide Gav if you can get him.
