I must admit, I am not the adventurous type but my family talked me into doing this with them and I'm glad they did. My husband reserved over the phone. When we arrived, the guides fitted us for life vests, separated us into groups. We were loaded onto schools buses and taken to the river entrance. Our assigned guide gave clear rules and instructions and all groups boarded the sturdy, self-draining rafts. The rafts hold up to 8-9 plus the guide and all rafts travel down the river in order. The rapids were great fun and not dangerous but you will get wet! We had a water battle with water guns and buckets before gliding into a calm stretch of water where we were given the opportunity to swim the dark waters of the river for about 25 minutes. We climbed back in to finish the trip with stronger class 3 rapids. The SOC had a photographer on the shore taking group pics of each raft in the rapids. Your guide makes sure you are ready for your shots. Just after that, the trip was over and we all jumped out and helped the guide carry the raft up the hill.
THEN, we hiked up a thick-canopied, wooded hill, to the SOC which was our starting point (where the buses picked us up). Bring water shoes, towels and a change of clothes! You can buy or rent water shoes from them if you have none but they will not allow things like flip-flops. There are a couple of dressing rooms in the center.
I couldn't believe I did it! And I enjoyed it!
We all gave it and our wonderful guide SAM the THUMBS-UP!!!!!!!
