Had a wonderful day, the lunch was good with plenty for seconds. Would highly reccomend this outfitter for a day on the river.. My husband & 23 yr old daughter chose to use "duckies" and had a ball.

There were 14 of us on 2 rafts. Half of them had never white water rafted, it was a hit for all!! The guides, Alex and Kayla, were excellently trained and knowledgeable, making this an experience to remember.

Professional and fun guides. Great trip for families. Just the right amount of adventure. Photos were great, too, and not too pricey.

We had a great trip with BOA. We took the Cheat Narrows Express trip with a 7 and 11 year old and they had a blast. The rapids were great and close together so there was not a lot of paddling. We stopped to swim...More

While they do provide them, we were told that we could go without if that was our preference, as the river was low (but not too low - it was GREAT!) We never felt unsafe (2 adults, 1 teen). This was one week ago- hope you... More
