"Just wanted to let you know that my friends and I had such a wonderful weekend at your place, they want to go back in August! It’s sounding like our group will be even bigger because word-of-mouth has caused more interest. Your team made us feel welcome and safe. Kudos to Sean for leading the way...and for plucking me out of the river twice!!!

"Magic Falls made our rafting experience absolutely perfect. Some rafting guides take you along for “their” ride where the guides at Magic Falls make the experience about their guests. Haley was extremely enthusiastic, accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10 recommend this company!"
