“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

I never thought i would do anything like this!!
It was very well organised and we had a thorough Health & safety briefing beforehand.
Our experienced rafter was Mark and he was really good, be prepared to get wet though as we ended up in the water at least twice but it was all good fun and part of the adventure. The experience lasts for about 2 hours and it flew by i would definitely do this again.

“If you like your water chilled and frothy!”
Reviewed 22 August 2010

I spent a morning at Nene Whitewater Centre to do a Whitewater Rafting session. The Centre was not the easiest to find, but worth the effort. There's loads of facilities and activities available. When I arrived a children’s group were starting a kayaking session and loads of individuals were heading out in their watercraft.

The Centre has a purpose built whitewater rafting course - which has a controlled water flow and manmade obstacles - it does mean that the bottom is not jagged and less likely to cause injury.

The rafting session was brilliant - with great instructors and a guaranteed soaking. The activity was great for team building with everyone having to work together to get down the course.

The facilities at the centre are appropriate for the activities taking place - good amount of parking, viewing areas located for spectators around the course, well spaced (& clean) changing area - although only 2 showers for the ladies which supplied either cold or chilled water! The cafe was functional with a well priced simple menu and friendly staff.

Overall - everything you needed to get wet and love it.
