Such an amazing experience! Lots of laughs and excitement. I highly recommend this company! Their guides are extremely knowledgeable and take safety seriously. Our guide Cailen went above and beyond by even telling us about the history of the river and area.

Great experience. Lunch was awesome and guides were excellent. We had a great time running the rapids. The water was crystal clear. The lunch was well prepared. I will for sure go there again and tell everyone about this great adventure.
