We filled a boat with seven family members, plus our wonderful river guide, Marie, and rafted down the gorgeous Trinity River on the Pigeon Run. It was a blast! Our seven-year-old granddaughter loved it and we felt safe with her in the boat. She was nervous a few times, but by the end of the trip she was feeling empowered. What no one at Bigfoot knew was that our family is dealing with my husband's terminal illness and we really needed a family outing that would be distracting and fun... and make some really good memories. He was fine on the trip and was even able to overcome a long time fear of heights when he jumped off a 15 foot rock into a swimming hole in the river. He said, "What the HELL... what do I have to lose!" and he jumped... 3 times. The whole day was amazing. The turkey sandwiches at lunch, that we assembled as we liked them, were fresh and tasty. The pictures we purchased at the end of the trip are more priceless than anyone will ever know!!!! Thank you BIGOOT.... thank you MARIE... thank you SERENDIPITY SNAPSHOTS... you have provided something amazing for our family!!!

Amazing company that offers guided rafting trips down my favorite river in the world, the Trinity. They also provide rentals for rafts and Kayaks to those that have experience and want that solo trip down the river at their own pace. Knowledgeable crews make these trips into amazing days pointing out interests all along the river. Great for families of all ages nothing brings them together than a day on the water !!!

Half-Day rafting trip (11am to 2pm) with guide Benson. A wonderful experience recommended to anyone (we are in our 60's).
Beautiful scenery and just the right amount of excitement. Benson is a great guide-Thank you Benson for an experience of lifetime on the Trinity River.

Wow what a cliff dive highlight of our trip, jumping off the rocks was just awesome. Traveling with my wife & kids 11+14 it was a wonderful adventure. Obviously an experienced crew had the system down pat because it all seemed to flow so smoothly. Check in was painless, safety meeting was informative and through enough. Rafts looked fine and our guide was a young "college age" woman who successfully guided us around all the rapids without flipping. On our trip we saw quite a few other boats dump their paddlers (other companies) into the river We felt that our guide was superior reading the river's currents. We were well satisfied with the meals. I'd suggest do the two day raft, we felt it was well worth it. Overall highly recommend this outfitter for high quality experience.

We took the Pigeon Point Full Day trip. There was water just released from the dam to boost the river for the upcoming Salmon run. The water was freezing cold, but the day was warm, about 100. The equipment was good. Our instructor, Travis was great. He helped get my son to jump off some rocks into the water at lunch time (then we couldn't get him to get back in the boat he had so much fun) and let him be the guide at the end and showed him how to control the boat and give directions. He even told us about a secret rope swing to go to after (just past ghost town of Helena...very fun). Only negative was the time. We started at 9am, and we were done by 1:45. We thought all day would be until 3 or 4. We had a great time and would highly recommend to anyone.
