Excellent opportunity- recommended

I'd like to thank and acknowledge Marcio and Jayden for guiding myself and my 14 year old son on a magnificent half day journey through the Barron River on "boards". Do yourself a favour, ignore the sedate rafting option and try boarding. More immersion, more adrenalin and more fun. Highly recommended.

So much fun and no experience required

My 12 year old picked this tour for his birthday and I was apprehensive thinking you'd need some form of experience.... this is not the case at all. The guys give you a safety briefing and make sure you understand the basics in the water before you head down stream for some fun. I had a couple of stacks but it's easy to get back onto the board and keep going. You're shown which path to take at each rapid to ensure you know the safest way to go. We all had a ball and highly recommend the tour!
