Exhilarating fun

My 2 teenagers and I had the best time. We arrived late, were unprepared (no togs or towel), but then went on to the have the most fun. We loved everything about the trip -- Hamish made it a total blast. Super highly recommend.

Great outdoor trup

Had a great time out on the water. Though the water level was slightly lower, meaning we had to walk over shallow rapids or just got stuck more, we had a great time out and learnt alot from the knowledgeable guide. Would highly recommend
