So Much Fun!

"We went White Water Rafting in the North Lakes and it was SO MUCH FUN! The water level wasn’t the highest because the weather was good that weekend, but even so there were enough rapids for it to be exciting and Marley the instructor was great! He made it fun for everybody and is clearly very good at his job!"

Group Of 16!

"A group of 16 of us went rafting with this company on the 6th May 2023! It was a fabulous experience & a great laugh! The guide in our raft, Darren, was great, gave clear instructions & made it fun but safe! Would definitely recommend this company & experience!"

Checked Off Bucket List!

"White Water Rafting has been on my husbands bucket list so I booked this for his 60th birthday! We had the best afternoon and our cheeks ached from laughing so much! We traveled from Kent for this (I’m geographically challenged 🥴), but honestly wouldn’t have wanted to do this anywhere else!"

Special Effort!

"A family of 4 with 2 boys aged 8 & 11 and we did the Taster Thursday session! Our instructors were very friendly and helpful, took care over the safety briefing, and ensured my 8 year old boy was comfortable at every step of the way - including checking that with us as parents!"

Best Activity!

"Highly recommend this as a family day out! The team (James, Marley & Rosie) go beyond to make sure you have a great time and get the most out of the experience, whilst always prioritising safety!

Brilliant Experience!

"My two grandsons and I (they’re 16 and 14, and I’m 70) had a brilliant morning White Water Rafting! The team were excellent as we had a full safety briefing and were fully kitted out with all the gear! Our guide, Chris, handled the boat expertly, kept us all safe, and made us laugh a lot!"
