Customer Reviews

  • The whitewater rafting carnage trip was amazing The whitewater rafting carnage trip was amazing! We had a great guide called Counts and he gave us the exact thrill ride of a trip that we wanted! The rapids were a challenge mostly when we went back to surf them!

  • WOW! What a great time. WOW! What a great time. Our guide, Harris, made sure that we got the very most out of our rafting experience. He skillfully, carefully and enthusiastically took us through all the rapids that were offered, most times more than once where he could. His knowledge of the river, as well as the surrounding sites, made the ride even more eventful. Whether you decide to take a more relaxing ride, or the exhilarating "carnage" tour, you will not be disappointed. Harris is the best!

  • My husband and I went with friends and Matteo was our guide! We did the Carnage course and I was very scared, but Matteo was amazing! He was so calm and gave amazing directions! He had so much knowledge about local history and was also hilarious! We got completely downpoured on and the weather was bad but we had a great time!

Frequently Asked Questions

You do not need experience to raft all trips are Professionally Guided, but you should be comfortable in and around water

We accommodate 4-7 guests per boat but have a limited number of larger boats that hold up to 9 guests.

Surfing in a raft is one of the most fun things on our river. Surfing happens when the raft rides in a wave without flipping. This involves skillful maneuvers from your guide. Since surfing happens in instances when the raft is balanced on top of rapidly circulating water, the chances of having an out of the boat experience is increased.

The river is low-risk. With over 40 years of experience, Whitewater Express’ risk management procedures are unsurpassed. We train our guides extensively and follow the most up-to-date industry standards. However, it is important that you and your group know this: Whitewater rafting, like all adventure activities, involves inherent risks. It is important that guests know their comfort level and take proper responsibility for their own safety. If Whitewater Express staff feel that any individual is not in the proper condition to raft, we reserve the right to not allow that individual to raft for his or her own safety.

You will get very wet as you will be going through big slashes and waves as you enjoy our great rapids. You also have the choice to float out of the boat the lazy river “habitat float” a narrow mild section of our river that flows through a Blue Heron rookery.

Going for a short swim is always a possibility of a whitewater trip. You’ll be wearing a Type V USCG-approved personal flotation device and we’ll brief everyone on what to expect and how to behave in the event that someone does fall out.
