Yes, as far as I am aware you can go rafting all year round even when raining, they are different areas for the beginner to the experienced rafter.

The prices do vary (depending on activity) as you can do White Water Rafting and Flat Water Rafting and most operators do other activities too. So get a few quotes from different operators and choose the best one for you. I have contacted a few operators, the best write-up will be the top answer.
