Such a fun course. Love how they added some additional options to the course. Dillion and EmJ were fun and patient guides. Can’t wait to bring family back for adventure.

I was part of a bachelorette party that went on a half day white water rafting trip. Our guide, Simon, was fantastic. He was incredibly fun but also very knowledgeable about rafting and the area. I would highly recommend this trip!

Kyle was entertaining, informative, patient, and great with the kids. He kept command of the rafting trip while being relaxed and accommodating. If I’m ever back in the area looking for a fly-fishing guide, I’ll look him up for that, too.

For ziplining, secure closed toed shoes such as sneakers or hiking shoes are required. Chacos are perfect for rafting but not ziplining. Is there anything else I can help you with?
