I had a wonderful and excellent guide who taught us how to have the maximum fun and memorable experience. He always reminded us that we should "HOLD TIGHT TO THE RAFT!!!!!", "DEEP PADDLE!!". The morale of the rafters in my raft were at sky high throughout the journey and i must admit that we had lots of fun!!!I forgot the name of the guide and i will like to say a big thank you for giving me my first time good white water rafting experience.Cheers,James (Hong Guan)

Omg this was an excellent experiences, I had never done anything like this before and was very apprehensive about doing this but the guys were very friendly and helpful. They took us through the safety and what to do if we found ourselves in the water. Once we were in the Grafton the water going down the river your addrellerling kicks in and you love every minute of it. The crew look after you and make sure that you have a great time, I would definitely recommend this to everyone as a must do.
