As part of our camp counselor training, we went kayaking with Maury. Then we went rafting down the rivers with Tim and Kent! It was so much fun, and all instructors were very clear and precise with their instructions.

We came here for a day during our camp training week to get experience with kayaks and canoes. Maury was a great instructor and made it a lot of fun!

Seems like a smallish outfit compared to the guys with the blue rafts, but the guides were skilled, knowledgeable, quirky and obviously cared about the area. Definitely using them next time. I had Maury, Tim and I forget the lady (sorry) as guides

Typically yes. However it is dependant on their weight (min 50 lbs) and water levels. Feel free to call us for more information. 301.834.9950
Hi, I plan to try whitewater rafting for the first time and would like to bring my GoPro with me. I'm wondering which kind of mount(s) you recommend I use, such that it won't cause injury and won't fall into the river? A head mount or chest mount or wrist strap mount, etc?

Yes it is very calm waters. This 66 year old may need a little help getting in and out of the tube but other than that, very relaxing and enjoyably
