We walked in to be greeted by the lovely lady at reception who made us really laugh and then I don’t think we stopped laughing till we left. Ollie our instructor was a legend, as was our safety canoeist,who’s name evades me as I’m getting old, so he will be referred to as the cool dude in the canoe. We were the last run of the day (Sunday the 19th)but you wouldn’t know it ,as everyone in the centre was still as enthusiastic as I’m sure they were on the first run. The safety brief from cool dude canoeist was informative but funny and Ollie’s instructions on how to raft were spot on but again fun. The experience itself is best described as phenomenal. We did four runs but could have happily done four more. Both my husband and I said without a shadow of a doubt this is one of the best things we have ever done. Thanks you lovely bunch,hope to see you again.

Me and a group of friends visited for the white water rafting and absolutely loved it!! Our instructor Reece was so much fun, and really made us all feel safe out on the water. Thanks so much Reece, would highly recommend this experience to everyone thinking of giving it a go! :)
