Hello 505marc,, Thanks for giving us a review. Yes, on the day that you did this trip the river was going quite fast. Any faster than this we would have had to cancel the trip. Some people love the river when it is running fast...More

A drizzly day did not dampen the fun of this trip. Was well organised and our guide was a good laugh.
