Great fun activity

Instructors were great, I had a fantastic time, some aspects were scary, but they had a full set up to help you feel save

Great rafting experience

Great activity and lots of fun. Great that you get very wet and even get to “float” down some of the rapids. Water fall at the end is great finish!

Such a morning for rafting

We had a blast in our experience! The river was challenging and the instructor was able to guide us well through the rapids. We chose to go for the fall at the end and it was worth it! Very good place to have some action so close to the city.
