  • Although a team of relatively small people, I think Tristan was proud of how well we worked those rapids! Great team work, great company, great fun. But the scenery stole the show. Forget about tours ...  more »
  • We had a great afternoon with the crew of Rapid Boarders. Only a 15-minute drive from Cairns and in our Palm Cove case we went into the Barron River. We were only two of this afternoon, so we had an ingenious support through a total of 3 guides-2 of them with us in the water. Without any prior experience, the River Boarding was huge fun and we felt safe at all times-even when it ripped off the board once:). The scenery around it is also great and especially in the flat-hot weather in Cairns the river is a very welcome refreshment. All in all, you can absolutely recommend the tour.
