I had never gone rafting before and this was a great first time trip the first of August. The staff was great, the food was awesome and the new friends were even better. The scenery is beautiful and some wildlife too. And of course relaxing.

I went on a 4 day trip and it was FANTASTIC! We went out of Vernal, Utah. I know that they also have 1 day trips just give them a call. In my opinion they are a very professional outfit and will not steer you wrong
