white water rafting guest review
Guest Review:

My Wife Alcinda & I joined another couple for a true Maine adventure! Although our ages ranged from 54 to 60 years old we never felt put out. Our guide was very professional and made the trip feel safe yet was very clear about the risks involved. Awesome, wicked good time!

Thank you
