We had Jake as our guide on the adventure and he was absolutely wonderful, very personable, entertaining and patient. I was a little nervous about doing this but he made me feel as ease and I really enjoyed myself. It was definitely something to remember!!!...More

Professional as we've ever seen, fun as we've ever experienced. We had the perfect day with A.J. as our guide, including a delicious picnic and multiple river thrills. Never felt like we were in danger, but definitely had our heart pounding. We'd do it again...More

A real adrenaline rush on a stunningly beautiful river. The guides were very enthusiastic. Would have loved to have gone straight back to the drop in and done it all again.

Thanks for the review, Magdalena! We are happy that you had the opportunity to raft with us. Hopefully next time the lower canyon will be open so that we can get you out heli-rafting. :)

We have booked a rafting tour with you for 8 June, I noticed that on one of the reviews they mentioned free camping. We will be travelling in a motorhome, will the camping facilities on your site be suitable or should we arrange to stay somewhere else?
