My wife and I have been in the rafting industry for nearly 25 years. When we started our own company seven years ago we decided to offer an alternative experience for our guests to the mega-outfitter. As a small mom and pop business we are able to offer a much more personalized, private experience on the nations most rafted river.
So come see why we have such loyal guests and monumental reviews, and let us share our love of rafting with you.
