Brilliant trip - 100% recommended

We had an awesome time on the river. The rafting was brilliant, with epic views. Who also doesn’t love a jet boat ride too?? The staff were great and made it even more fun. I’d recommend it 100%.

Great family fun

Our kids (7 &10 yrs) and I had a fantastic time on the raft and jet boat. Our guide was friendly, fun, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. It was cold but they tried to make it as less of a factor as possible. This family run business is not a commercialized, impersonal attraction. They have heart in their approach to their what they offer.
