A great day out, not too thrilling, just good fun. But it was our tour leader who made the difference. He was so funny and engaging all afternoon, and that made a good day into a great day.

“Where’d Rebecca Go?!”
Nov 2021 • Couples
The crew and experience was amazing. Definitely recommend! Make sure you take your sense of humour and adventure with you and prepare to get wet whether you stay in the boat or not! Special mention to Joe our guide, very skilled, lots of fun and impeccable timing for jokes! Can’t wait to try the full day tour next time!

Great experience for a first timer!
Nov 2021 • Friends
For a first time doing white water rafting, this experience was great! As someone who is not necessarily an adrenaline junky, this was perfect - some time in the rapids and some calm moments to swim. Jordan was amazing and I was really glad he was our guide. He was very focused on safety and good at steering the boat. If you are an experienced rafter and love a rougher ride, the Tully tour might be more up your alley.

Brilliant day of fun. We were total novices, the entire crew were friendly and helpful and put us at ease. The scenery is beautiful, rapids fun and not too scary at all. Highly recommend you do this!
