I started quite nervous about the big waterfalls, but the guide was very informative and put me at ease. I'm so glad we went, it was the highlight of our trip. Had a blast, guide was funny and gave us all options so we all got the experience we were looking for. Can't recommend highly enough

Friendly and expert guides combined with amazing natural beauty of the river and the excitement of the rapids/falls made this an incredible Trip. Special thanks to our guide Owen who kept things just as exciting as we wanted.

If you haven't ever white water rafted before, this is a must do. The whole experience was awesome from start to finish. Our guide, Blue, was so friendly and helpful, the equipment & clothing is all provided. You feel safe the whole time as they explain exactly what you need to do on the river. The waterfalls are super fun and you can hop out & swim down one of the smaller ones, which was a real buzz. They take plenty of photos too. I would definitely recommend this activity.
