It was a great outing! Our guide Benjamin and the rest of the staff were excellent. They created a friendly environment and prepared us well for what to do in the raft. The water was high and fast and even though our group had a wide range of abilities, we all had a lot of fun in this beautiful setting. Highly recommended!

First time I was so nervous as the river was very high and moving fast. Ben was absolutely amazing with his full detail to instruction, survival and the basics of river rafting. His crew was in another boat ( Hannah, Chelsea, Zack and Jeremy) who were also knowledgeable, very helpful and so polite. From the moment we pulled off shore the 8 of us felt very safe, comfortable and not nervous at all with Ben’s ongoing instructions all the way down the 12km river. It was so invigorating, 100% team work involved with so much fun and laughter. I highly recommend Ben and company and will be back next year hopefully we can do the Class IV rapids. It truly was an amazing day. Thank you yo you all

We drove 6 hours to spend the day with Ben and his crew on the St Mary’s River. Right from the time we arrived, we were welcomed and felt very comfortable. As this was our first time that any of us had been rafting we had a few questions which Ben answered happily. The day was dim and raining but we were very comfortable in the provided gear. Hanna, our raft guide was awesome!! She was very understanding that members of our group were nervous around water and she quickly put their mind at ease. We had a GREAT afternoon on the water with Hanna at the helm. All in all I would highly recommend seeing Ben and his crew if you have some time to spend in Beautiful Kimberly…..you won’t be disappointed. Great job Ben and crew….we will definitely be back.

Ben was extremely knowledgeable about the area and gave us great stories about what we saw and why. He was very patient and calming with the little ones and the big ones. We loved our ride and had a blast jumping off the rock. If and when we come back we will be looking to book again. Thanks Ben, Thomas, and Mitch.
