“Awesome Time!!”

My wife and I did the whitewater kayaking and had a blast. Jerome was our guide and he couldn't have been more helpful,

experienced and fun! Jonah (bus driver and photographer extraordinaire) and Sean (raft guide )were the other guides and both

made the trip perfect as well. Bus ride was great and the 80s music trivia competition was a nice little bonus.

Very professional operation and we will surely do it again.



““Very fun entertaining trip””

My wife and I went on this trip and really enjoyed our selves. The rapids were fun and definitely bring your go pro and buy

the pictures at the end. Your go pro is cool but they take some amazing action shots of the trip. John was a great bus driver as well.



“Great Adventure”

Shout out to Sean, Jonah and Jerome. They're very helpful and they made our trip so enjoyable. This was our first time and

Sean really made it easy for us. We had so much fun that we want to do it again! Thank you so much for all your help!
