    Guides are a great asset!

    A great experience with this combo of raft and jet boat. The jet boat is operated by another operator who are very safety conscious which is great. A fun ride with lots of spins. Rafting has great guides who know their stuff. Very friendly and want you to have fun. Chance to have a swim and jumping off rocks. A tame set of rapids but great intro to rafting. Recommend Jonesy and Horse as great guides!
