We had a great time with our guided John and Avery. John even let us go down some areas out of the raft. We had kids ages 8 & 11 and 3 adults. We all had a great day on the river.

Our river rafting trip was outstanding due to the experienced guide we had. We even got to do a little "surfing" where you flood the raft by purposefully driving it into a rapid. This takes a bit of skill as it does not seem possible...More

The zipline canopy tour was an amazing 3 hour adventure. On top of having a great course and scenery along the Potomac, our tour guides Zack and Noah made the afternoon incredible. Thank you - me and my 7 year old loved it!

Yes. No glass. There are signs about no alcohol but they do not enforce it. Some people tie a small cooler to their tube, or you can rent a cooler float. Walmart sells them for about $5. Hope that helps!

As the other respondents said, I don't think so. Even if you could it would be really difficult to bring it to and from the river on the bus since all of the other tubes are carried on a huge trailer behind.
