  • We had a fabulous afternoon rafting the river with excellent guides. I enjoyed the history of the area we were rafting too. I like how hugely safety conscious you are and that you prepared us for anything that may happen. So if you have ever wanted to try white water rafting gives these guys a go. They are awesome.
  • me and my family had such a great time rafting with river rats. we were allowed to swim through some sections of the river which was awesome, and had some magnificent photos afterward. safety procedures were discussed super clearly and allowed time to work on each and everyone’s confidence with steering the raft together. heard some great stories and history about the area. overall was an amazing experience. would go with river rats again. thanks team
