Shaun, Brian, and Max helped to make our trip on the North Umpqua a fantastic experience! All three of them clearly know and love what they do, and were great to talk with on the relaxing floats between rapids. Furthermore, Ouzels office communication was also exceptional. Erika emailed me a week before the trip to let me know that no one else had signed up to go yet, and then worked to get another group to switch days so we could all go. My wife and I had a blast and would love to raft with Ouzel again!

We did the special Deschutes River 3 day trip during the 20 Aug 2017 total Eclipse. The trip was awesome! It was a very dynamic situation due to the unusually large amount of people in the area to see the Eclipse and some pesky forest fires. Brian, one of the two owners, was fantastic. He properly managed the dynamic situation and kept us informed. The river guides we had, Alek, Toby, Matt, and Max, were AMAZING in all respects. They were extremely good-natured, fun, articulate, intelligent, and accommodating. It was clear Alek was in charge and his masterful leadership and management skills made this unusually dynamic trip go very smooth. It was an awesome trip but a few recommendations. It seems like 10 - 12 per group. Try to get and go with YOUR friends and family. There is much time in close quarters with others and probably much more fun with people you know and enjoy being around. Go on standard trips when nothing like Eclipse going on. And, finally, my guess is all guides good, but I'd specifically request or try hard to go on trip with the "Fantastic Four" river guides I mentioned above.

Wow what a wonderful time! The staff is more gracious and accommodating than I could ever imagine. The food was perfect and plentiful. I had a safe route explained to me for all the rapids. Even though it rained the staff placed huge canopies over our common space. Anthony was stellar in all ways. Clare, is kind and helpful and cleverly inventive. Alli, is tenacious, sweet and inspiring. GO..a great adventure!
