Being a college student, training and working at WAO was a perfect experience. There is no better way to spend your Summer than getting lots of sun, meeting great people (both your co-workers and customers), and spending your time on the river. WAO, in particular, is a great company to work for because of the experience and expertise of the senior guides.

Thank you so much for such a great trip! The boys had a great time & we felt as though we were well taken care of throughout our rafting experience. We will definitely be back!
