|Boat 2 Em and Jim|
As we paddle a double sea kayak it wasn't long before we were feeling quite comfortable! We were given instruction to ferry glide on the bottom fall getting used to the moving water.

It was then time to really test out the rafts and our nerves. The good thing about being a team is that you trust each other impeccably and when a command to paddle comes, that is what H did with little thought about what might happen as I steered us into the bottom fall. All the action of course was caught on camera courtesy of Cym and Auntie Di!

The course builds up your confidence slowly with defensive swimming followed by a few runs on the bottom part of the course. This was completed with no reportable incidences! It was soon time to get exited about running the whole course!
The instructors unfortunately had to take one raft at a time which meant with 6 rafts we were waiting a long time at the bottom. However it was not too long before we were on the conveyor belt heading for the top.

Once back in the raft it was time to get out and put the rafts away. This was a great experience and we would recommend it to everyone! We never stopped laughing from start to finish! The centre really is a great place even just to go and watch the different activities happening on the course. However be warned once you watch you will want a go!!
