We had such an awesome time out on the river with the raging thunder crew! Our guide Jackie was a legend, entertaining and informative and so good at tailoring our experience so that our whole group enjoy every aspect. We loved how many opportunities there were to jump in the water and cool off and how many laughs we had, at the expense of ourselves and some of the other boats. We were all first timers and will now seek out every opportunity to go down rapids again, so much fun!

This is a great activity to do & is lots of fun. The tour guides are terrific (big shout out to Hemy who was our guide on the day) & everything is very well organised. This white water rafting has different grade falls (all easy for a first timer) & allows time to swim & float down Barron Gorge enjoying spectacular scenery. Highly rate this experience.

We enjoyed the activity very much. The river is so beautiful and seeing both side the bank rainforest when you are rafting. The instructor Himi is very good. I recommend it to everyone. We are 63 years old, fit and no problems at all for this activity.

So much fun. Would go again. Felt very safe for my partner who did it for the first time

Awesome guides, awesome rafting. Shout out to Dan for making it fun!
