My husband, myself and another couple rented a raft for the day and went on our own raft trip. We had an amazing day. It wasnt white water( too chicken for that) but such a beautiful rafting experience. I highly recommend it.

Yes we start rafting trips in May and run through September. In the early season we have everyone wear wetsuits, fleece, and splash jackets so you will stay warm.
