Do you have to be able to swim?

Swimming is not required to go rafting with us. Yo are required to wear a life jacket and that will prevent you from going under the water too easily. Your guide will be by your side the entire trip to ensure your safety as well. We like our customers and would not put you in a position that is dagerous or life threatening in any way.

I bought two deals $19.99 my credit card was charged, but never received a email confirmation. What should I do?

Natily G.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

Hmmm. This sounds like a question that will be better answered with Groupons customer service department. You should still be able to accss your Groupon account though. Check it and see if your vouchers are there.

Q:

How long is the ride itself? Start to finish time in the raft? Not including check in, etc...

Genine B.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

A typical adventure will give you at least an hour on the water. There is about 20 minutes of total travel time to and from the launch and take out areas, plus some safety instruction. At the take out area there will be a small delay while the crew cleans up the equipment for transport. Its all fun though. Ask anyone. Buy your tickets direct through us and we will offer the Groupon discount while the deal is live. Or up grade to the Half Day adventure for only $55.

Q:

is this dangerous?? i have never been white water rafting but it looks so fun! any experience needed??

Annamaria R.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

This is an extreme sport so there is always an element of danger or it wouldnt be worth doing. We do everything we can to minimize your risk. This is our 9th season and we have an excellent safety rating. You would have to turn over a lot of river rocks to find someone that has been scraped or bruised rafting with us. It is very fun indeed! No previuos experience is required to ride the rapids with us.

Q:

Do you guys provide any longer trip than 2 hrs excursion? Several years ago I did a 2-day rafting which included camping over night on the river bank. Do you also offer this type of activity and if so is there any discount deal for that?

napa d.  asked on  Apr 8, 2013

A:

No sorry we do not. That specific trip is in very high demand and the company that offers it will not reduce the price for any reason.
