The staff was very helpful in splitting our group of 10 into trips of various difficulty. The class II-III trip was very enjoyable and our other group members enjoyed their trips too. They provided all the gear we needed and they were very safety conscious.

Great family experience. Staff was all amazing, my husband commented on how hard the staff was working. Made my eight year old feel like a rockstar with all their praise of his "rowing" ability, even gave him a patch.

I wonder which rafting trip you did: the rafting or the rapids. We are going in August of 2017 and would like to do the rapids as long as it is not more than a class 3. Thanks. Judi

In August you would have great safe family fun parcicipating in either the Full Day (4 hour + lunch) or the Half Day (2 hour.) during these trips you will experience II III rapids!
