We had great fun! Super friendly and much more technical than other rafting we did on our trip. Fewer rapids but thoroughly enjoyable. Would highly recommend.

Great white water rafting company. I was very nervous but they gave great instructions and we loved every moment. Tea and scones much appreciated on our return to base.

Not scary (for a 57 year old with a much younger wife :-)....) apart from the jump off the rock below the rapids. But floating downstream was great and the guide (Lisa) was just great. $130PP.
