Great weather today for this activity. It was very interesting to raft on the river that I see almost everyday. Approximately 3 hours on the water. Opportunity to jump into rapids and cliff jump.

The tour guides are great with children. They are given life jackets and sit in the front for the most fun. Children do not paddle so there is no pressure on them.
