Equipment
The classic high-rise rocker bottom McKenzie drift boats we use have been improved upon over the past 80 years for use on this famous river.

Not only can they run whitewater, but in the hands of our able guides these stable boats can quietly and precisely maneuver into the smallest canals and streams to view wildlife at it's most prestine.
