This was a grade 3 river in New Zealand, however, this would have been a class 5 in the US. The river wasn't crowded. It lasted 2 hours. Best rafting trip I've ever done.

Four friends, all in our 50’s, loved it. The paddling, jumping off the rock and the professional yet fun attitude of our guides. It was a great afternoon.
