I had such a good experience that when I returned to the area on my annual "girls trip" (five women ages 30-36), we went rafting again with this company. Our guide, Russ, was amazing. He was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the river and the conditions (the water was low). He made everyone comfortable and confident and not scared. (We had many first-timers in the boat.) No one ever felt unsafe, even though we saw lots of other boats losing rafters into the water quite often. Russ just seemed to know what he was doing, and his confidence assured all of us. I can't wait to go back, and I am sure all of their guides are great, but I will make sure to ask for Russ.
Tip: This company accepts competitors' coupons--their coupons are usually only for $6 or so off, but they will take coupons for $10 off from other companies. We did buy the picture; it was $15 but very well worth it. It preserved another wonderful memory. I just wish I lived closer so I could have a season pass or go more often.

We were assigned a guide and met our raft partners. We loaded onto a bus with rafts on top. When we reached the river, we unloaded as guides put the rafts into the water. The water was very cold. We practiced our strokes. We hit our first set of rapids and the guide told you to smile while the camera took our photo. It was a lot of fun and the guide told you what to do. No experience necessary. It was fast paced fun for all. At the end, we unloaded and pulled the raft out of the water. We turned our equipment in, viewed our photos, grabbed our keys, and changed while our photos were processed or you can view them online after you get home.
You will get wet on this ride. Wear tennis shoes or sandals secured at the ankles, shorts or bathing suit, and a T-shirt.
