Another great birthday outing for the kids! One of the moms was terrified of rafting, and our guide made her comfortable while still letting the kids experience all of the exciting "risky" parts of rafting. She admitted at the end of the day that she loved it, and the kids couldn't stop talking about their first time.

Very professional, safe and kind to all the kids I brought along. Other instructor also went out of his way to make my daughter feel special it was her birthday, which I really appreciated. Matt answered their many questions and let them swim, ride the front of the raft, and experience all the fun parts of rafting with patience. Great company!
