Important Covid 19 Note: Due to our commitment to keep our guests safe from Covid, we are no longer stopping for a lunch break on the river where the rafting guides typically prepare your riverside feast. Instead, you will be served lunch upon return to the Exploration Center prepared by our kitchen staff. This will cut the time on the river down about an hour, but the amount of rapids covered will not be affected.
