Our family including 2 teens had a fabulous day on the Tully. Our guide James made sure we had an exciting and fun experience. The lunch was great and we had loads of fun and plenty of screaming. Cheers Donna Sampson

Well organised and a great confident crew. I was a little nervous and Mauricio put me at ease. Great rapids, I did the Xtream as my friends made me. If you like water and going in this is right up your street, cliff jumps, rapid swimming and safe, forced tip overs. Good fun. Crew are well enthusiastic and make the day special. I was picked up from Mission beach and they dropped me off to my next destination - Palm Cove. After a long day this was priceless. They do pick ups and drops offs in various places again this is well organised
