A terrific experience, from booking all the way through the end, looking at photos. First rate operation. Felt totally safe with our guide (Pat). The cookout was lots of fun. And the rafting was super.

We took the Family Half-Day rafting trip - Class I & II rapids. It was not at all scary and lots of fun. Our guide, Grisham, was truly outstanding.

Thanks for giving rafting a try ... and finding out that it is not death-defying. We have mild trips and wild trips but injuries are extremely rare on all levels. Glad you had a good time with Ashleigh.
