Our first time white water rafting and what a time we had! We chose the 1/3 day beginners trip and had a blast. Chuck was fantastic as our guide pointing out history as well as "driving" the raft. We would do this trip again.

Our tour guide, Caleb, showed our group an amazing time rafting. Despite frigid waters and some rain, the group had an intense and fun trip. 13/10 would definitely recommend.
