We white water rafted today with Maverick as our guide. He did a great job. His rowing instructions were the best. I would recommend this for parents with teens. It is difficult to find something we all enjoy.

Very professional but fun guides with top-notch facility, rafts, and personalities. Shout out to Judson as well. He made the day for us and we won't soon forget him or AAE.
