First time rafting for me, and thoroughly enjoyed myself! White water it's not but we has a few bumps and splashes. But at this time of year the river is low. A great first rafting experience!

A great way to have a river trip - if you don't mind a splash! Very gentle rapids and great people to do the rowing and keep you amused. Ideal for those of an age which makes the more vigorous rafting impossible.More

Hi Larry The water time varies depending on water levels. It will be about 1 hour to 1.5 hours on the water. With the bus shuttle, plan to spend about 2-2.5 hours with us. Let us know if you have any more questions
