What our Students are Saying
"I took an ACE course through Adventure Plus and it was awesome! Covered canyoneering from so many different aspects. Most importantly of all was safety and having fun. Met some great people and TJ was an awesome instructor who always had great advice and cool stories. Of course I took advantage of the discount they offered for students to grab a Critr and some other things."
