These guys crushed it. From the pick up to the safety and gear to the picnic lunch and the dinner and video tape of our adventure. Epic day. Thank you Rob, John Henry, Randy and Barny for making this day beyond words fun.

Amazing time! Every aspect of this adventure was above and beyond all expectations! Staff is friendly, safety is #1, camping is primitive like the good old days and the shower house was very clean. Equipment including wet suits, transportation vehicles and rafts were top notch...More
