Our Equipment

We have a stock of over 50 neoprene 2.5mm wetsuits in excellent conditions that range in size from XS to XXXL and 50 pairs of neoprene river shoes from size 4 to 13 US or 35 to 47 EU. This assures our passengers will receive dry gear and the right size for their trip.

Also important to know is that all of our equipment is made by the NRS company. Recognized worldwide for the quality of their products, we use NRS expedition 12 foot rafts, with a capacity of 6 passengers including the guide, which are perfect for this technical river.

Rafting Guides

We have an experienced team of guides with an average of 10 years guiding and or kayaking. Previous experience in other countries include  Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Italy, and Japan. 

All of our staff has also completed a swift water rescue technician course in addition to wilderness first aid response course which are international certifications required for raft guiding up to class V.


We use private transportation so feel free to bring your camera if you want to take some pictures at the put in, take out, or during the trip if it is a waterproof camera.

While on the river our driver will take care of your belongings in the van as he will wait for us at the take out.
