Your guide will give your group a safety speech, and then you will board your raft. Each raft has its own guide and a Paradise photographer will take photos of you as you splash through the rapids.

  • 8-mile whitewater rafting
  • 18-mile whitewater rafting
  • Raft and Ride (rafting combined with a horseback riding excursion)
