So you think you are going to float peacefully down the stream, gently bobbing along, but that isn't the case. This is a fantastic activity for all the family to enjoy with enough thrills down the rapids and negotiating currents to keep everyone on the edge of their seats... oops, I mean tubes. This was the highlight of our holidays... More

We had a great time and a very full day! Stu was our guide and he is a multi-talented guy! He knows the animals, the flora, history of the area, some of the local Aboriginal lore, as well as the best spots, and is a good driver and guide. Our fun-filled jam packed day started at Mossman Gorge with an... More

Well organised and great fun - instructors are safety conscious but with the focus on fun - trip is in parts physically demanding if your not used to it - but would highly recommend to all - my kids (12 & 15) thought is was the best trip of the holiday

We loved it. Half day was a great introduction to white water rafting. Great boat leaders. Very safety conscious without taking all the fun out. Wouldn't hesitate in going with these guys again. Next time we'll be doing a full day. Fantastic!

We had no plans for our first day in Cairns, so we headed down to the Esplanade where there were tons of tour companies. We ended up booking a White Water Rafting trip down the Barron River. It’s possible that this could be a good day if the water was high, but when we booked, we had no idea that... More
