Jon the mad Canadian was great. Action packed and fun. Well run and all the staff were fantastic. Would do it again.

Incredible scenery, very fun rapids and awesome guides. Had an absolute ball. Didn't stop smiling the whole time! We were even able to have a swim midway through. The water was surprisingly warm. The valley was breath-taking. Very tranquil (aside from all us people). Will definitely be doing this again next time I'm in Cairns!

Great experience for starters ...Guide was really helpful. Must do when in Cairns... Need to create/install more maybe temporary change/wash rooms as it gets really crowded at the public toilets
