Our experience is one we will remember always. Scott shares history and such interesting details along the trip that you feel a part of the river. The rafting is fun in the rapids and very relaxing in the smooth water. The trip is a perfect combination of activity, education, relaxation and of course fun.

Bill, one of the owners was very friendly and drove us both to the river and back to Frisco. He provided a lot of history along the drive. Dave was our guide on the river and very nice.... More

This is an experience I will treasure for a lifetime! From beginning to end the trip was awesome! Even the drive to and from were fun! Our drivers were very knowledgeable. They pointed stuff out to us the entire drive and answered any questions we had. The rafting trip itself was so much fun. Our guide was fun, funny and... More

I would highly recommend almost anyone to do one of these raft trips. The guide did almost all the work and gave easy instructions when he needed help.

We went rafting with two grown children and 2 grandchildren ( 6 and7). We had great service from the staff and particular attention was given to the two younger kids. We all had a fantastic time.

While there are many river rafting groups to chose from, we noticed this one had only excellent reviews so we gave them a call. This family operated business is just the right thing for a day on the river with older or younger ones in your group! We were a group of 3 elderly ladies, ready for fun, but out... More

We did a full day rafting trip with Scott and river dog Eddie for the second time. I highly recommend this family run business ! Everything was perfect -- from the shuttle, lunch, to an awesome rafting experience. We will definitely return for a third trip !!
