"I just had to let you know that the crew from Johnny’s Selected Seeds had an AWESOME time on Friday, June 15th! Out of the six of us, four had never been white water rafting before and we all loved it! I can speak for myself and tell you I could easily be addicted to rafting! The weather was unbelievable. The lunch was really good and our guide was fantastic! I do believe we may book again in the fall. I don’t think I can wait until next year! :) Thanks again!"

"Thank you for helping coordinate an awesome rafting trip for me and my 6 friends. Guide Eric Lundquist was perfect for us! We really enjoyed our time with him and all the ladies took something special from the day: overcame a fear, experienced something they never did before or just had a perfect time enjoying the beauty of the river. The stop at the waterfall was a highlight for everyone! Your business is absolutely wonderful!! I had such a good experience this past summer with my retreat that I am working on expanding and doing two retreats in 2018!"
