8 Miles of WhitewaterSarah R
“Our guide Pat was fantastic! He was well informed, experienced, and funny. My sister and I took my dad on a once in a lifetime trip and whitewater rafting was something we all wanted to do. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or company to use to make this a trip of a lifetime. ”
River TripTripAdvisor Comment
“We called last minute with a group of 11 people ranging in age from 7 - 73. They booked us immediately. Everyone at Sands was overly friendly and kind. The bus driver gave us a guided tour of the area on our way to the river (completely unexpected). Ben, our guide was over the top fun and friendly. Engaging our children, finding the best spots on the river for a safe but thrilling ride. My kids, wife and I will never forget this trip.”
8 Mile WhitewaterTripAdvisor Comment
“Took my kids on their first whitewater rafting trip and they had a blast! Rapids were not too big since it's the end of the season, but it was just right for my 8- and 11-year-old. Austin was a great guide and hilarious (although don't believe any of his stories...) The staff was friendly and helpful.”

“This was our 2nd year in a row and have loved all the employees we have encountered. Your guides have been outstanding and made our trips enjoyable. Both Matt this year and Ben last year deserve kudos, or whatever you do to reward exceptional employees. Thanks for providing my family with an outstanding trip!!”
