I wanted to say thanks for a great rafting trip. My son & I really enjoyed it. Doug did a great job as our guide. I would recommend WAO to anyone!

"We just wanted to write to tell you how much we enjoyed our first rafting trip last Saturday. We were there with 4 other people and did the Gorge Double Shot trip. Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful and our guide - Tim - was outstanding. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the river. We all felt very secure with his experience and love of what he does. We are already planning our next trip."
