Unbelievable Time

Had the most unbelievable time on the half day excursion, with our guide Free. Super nice guy, extremely knowledgeable on the area, and a great coach for first time white water rafters!

Great time, great guides

Took our 12 year old twins and had a blast on the Brown's Canyon ride. Very safety conscious and made sure the kids had an especially nice time.

Great day on the Arkansas

Excellent on river guides. Brendan was fabulous. We had a great time learning about the area, how to read the river and safely shooting the rapids. We were in a raft with only 4 guests, which made the trip very special. They have the capability to do personalized trips. Family owned and low-key.

Phenomenal trip down Browns Canyon

We did a full day rafting trip down Browns Canyon of the Arkansas river. I have been down the river many times and this was the best trip. Brenndan, our guide was phenomenal and keep us entertained while providing a great and safe experience.
