Fun- will go again! The teachers are very friendly and concerned about the people on the boat. I wasn’t prepared and it was 40F , they gave me all the equipment needed to stay warm!

This company is fantastic to work with! They accommodated 30+ hyperactive high school freshmen! Easy to work with, very professional, and the kids had a blast! Thanks again, Cliff and Swiftwater Adventures!

Our family had a great time for our first adventure whitewater rafting on the St Louis River. We look forward to another adventure earlier in the summer for bigger rapids.

The staff did a great job at making sure we had a float trip to remember . This is a great trip to scout out the river for future kayak or canoe trips in future . Just do it !

We enjoyed our trip with Swiftwater. While the water was low they made it fun. We look forward to returning in the Spring when the water is high.
