It was more than expected and every minute was great. Midway through the float it started to rain, not so bad. Then it turned into a torrential down pour with high winds-the results after the storm-multiple waterfalls. Fabulous. Steve, our guide is knowledgeable of the area and made the trip that much more interesting by pointing out some of the highlights/history contained within those 15 miles.

the river water is sooooo cold, can't stand to go in more than 15 seconds, but it's so much fun. My two 20 years old kids have so much fun, the view is breathtaking, really suggest this tour during summer time, the other season probably will be too cold to touch the water
