Great rafting with the Ouzel professionals! Excellent trip all the way around! Even though we were with children, we felt our guides had it all under control. Having been on quite a few rafting trips, these guys know their stuff.

We did the half day trip on the McKenzie and had a great time. Shawn and Phil are excellent guides and made the experience a fun one. The rapids themselves are not hard but we all got wet 😀.
