"We rafted The Numbers. It was great and our guide was fun. Almost bounced off the raft a few times which made it thrilling. They supplied all the equipment that we needed. The water was about 50 degrees so don't skip the wet suit. "
"I have had many "Experiences" with Cloud 9 and have never been disappointed. You obviously do your "homework" in selecting the outfitters/providers because they are always FIRST CLASS. I could get lucky and find them without Cloud 9 but when I book with you, I know that your selections are based on research, not luck! AVA is a first rate outfitter with very experienced river guides and good equipment. When you are doing Class V's, it is good to have someone in the raft that knows what they are doing because if you go out of the raft, it is a long, rocky way down stream to get back in. "
