Unorganized disappointing
, Sep 2021
Very disappointing. Tour guide showed up with raft to small asking the guests if we should get a bigger one( after confirming by text message the day before how big the party was). The male guests has to switch out the rafts.we get on our way when my husband pointed out that the van was on EMPTY, so now we had to stop for fuel. Then we stopped and had to get changed into the provided clothing which was wet and way oversized. It was 2.5 hours by the time we lowered the raft in the water. The time in the water was just over 1 hour. The guests had to load the raft and when we returned back to town it was 9 pm( drive back with construction was 1 hour). Very Very disappointing and NOT worth the money you pay for this .NOT recommended. I don't want to give it even 1 star but it wouldn't post without it.
Relaxing Drift Down the River
, Sep 2021
The guide was full of interesting anecdotes. Saw many bald eagles, ducks, and other birds "up close and personal". Disembarking was wet. Waders and wet shoes were provided. Not suitable for small children.
A fun day on a beautiful river.

Our guide Zak was great, very good information, very kind, a lot of help! Really enjoyed the view all the way down the river and very relaxing !! Did not like the pick up area, needs a place to sit to remove boots and wait for van.
