Did this once before about 8 years ago. Had a good time both times. Very relaxing and a good time to cool off in hot and sunny Arizona. Would do it again in a heartbeat

We did the 2 1/2 hr float trip. Great and friendly staff, crystal clear water, tubes available with tubs for coolers. Great fun activity for a great day in the Arizona sunshine.
