"I get to Notre Dame a few times per year, and have always wanted to do this. Finally I had some weekend time to burn and man I was not disappointed. This was an awesome adventure and a cant beat price! Highly recommend!" - Jason B.
"This experience is unforgettable! No where else offers this experience in their downtown - whitewater rafting within a couple of blocks of a local food co-op, hotels, coffee shops, and fine dining. A fun way to take a break from the everyday, team up, get a little wet, and see South Bend from a new perspective. PLUS: affordable, fun, and easy to access." - 1KOB
