Our raft guide Wil was one of the friendliest people I have ever met! The rapid levels are perfect for a beginners, calm with burst of excitement. The scenery was also jaw dropping. I would recommend Wil and USA Rafts to any/everyone.

USA Raft does not have a weight restriction. We welcome all rafters as long as they are excited to be on the water and willing to paddle! We carry extra small to extra-large PFD's (personal flotation devices).
