It was an amazing experience! Our guide, Ben was so informative about the area in general, rafting and the wildlife. We saw a lot of bald eagles and waterfowl. Even though we were hoping to see a moose, the scenery made up for it. We highly recommend this raft float and company.

quick, caring porting to river, lots of jokes on the way, Simon, our river guide pointed out Eagles and Osprey and was caring in talking the whole way plus answering questions he knew.

Had an amazing time on the raft. It was the perfect mix of scenic and rapids. Loved it. Don't pass up this experience.

We had a great time and our guide Oliver was so much fun!
