$50 for a Whitewater-Rafting Tour for Two (Up to $109.90 Value)

As experienced instructors guide two eight-passenger rafts through Class IV rapids, water foams up around each watercraft, carrying the group down the scenic Menominee River on a three-hour voyage. Before paddlers step into rafts, trips start with a lesson in proper paddling, building up rapport among fellow raftsmen before heading out into the currents of Class I and II rapids. Rafters meander down the river until they hit the gorge, where passengers take a quick hike to get an aerial view of the upcoming rapids. Groups then navigate through Class IV rapids, enjoying the bouncy ride while little ones and timid paddlers [watch safely from a scenic overlook]. All paddlers then reconvene for the final stretch of river, enjoying pristine views of the winding water and possible bald eagle sightings that don't require wearing American-flag pants as bait. Rides conclude with a trip over the Terminal Surfer rapid, where instructors jettison adventure-seekers over the surf hole-pending safe conditions-to finish off the adrenaline-rush-filled day. Tours depart multiple times each day.

Customer Reviews

We had a very fun afternoon! Compared to the other rafting group we saw on the river from another company, we definitely picked a top notch outfitter who cares about their clients. It was really great to go through the rapids twice because they are short and go by very quick! Our guide, Marcelo, was terrific and so knowledgeable about the river and rafting in general. He worked very well with our group who had some older people in it, and we all were first timers so I cannot say enough good things about him. And the photos taken by their photographer were just amazing! We will be going back as soon as we can!
