Our half-day raft trip was fantastic. With the water so low this time of year, rocks made for some tricky maneuvering, which Ciaran handled expertly and without trouble. Thank you!

Great way to spend a few hours

We took the whole family (13 members (ages 6-54)) on a rafting trip with American Adventure Expeditions. We all had a great time. AAE was organized and professional. I highly recommend.

What an adventure

Our family had a great time rafting. This was the first time we had been in a raft so some of us were a bit nervous. Aaron did a great job of explaining everything and helping us to feel comfortable. We would definitely recommend AAE!

I've only done paddle raft trips but they may offer oar boat trips as well. Give them a call. If they do not offer that type of trip, they will give you advice as to who to call.
