This is our third, but not last, time rafting with the company. Did the full day trip of the middle north fork and had a BLAST!! Our guide was Danny, who was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was great. My whole family had a blast!

Spent a GREAT day with my three 20+ something kids and River Guide Jeff with H2O Adventures. Without any doubt H2O is the VERY BEST Rafting Company on the river. Awesome time had by all. [Secret Hint: ask for Jeff as your guide. :-)]
