My 13 year old and I went in early July, which luckily had a rise in the water. I had rafted before, but not my daughter. She loved it all, even the cold water splashes. The "3 rocks" and "cardiac corner" were well worth the trip! Sarah was a great instructor -- for those of all ages. Trip is highly recommended and worth every bit -- especially the extra $10 each for the water suits. The environment is priceless also.
We booked trip for 8 of us to raft, 3 adults and 5 children. Since we are from Michigan we planned this one day for rafting, other day was booked and paid for horseback riding. When we booked trip they took our credit card and reserved a spot for us.
Upon arriving we were told the computer went down and they forgot which trip we wanted. Instead of holding a spot for us on ANY trip, they booked all the spots and we were basically told too bad. Our options were to come back later in the week, pay extra for kayak trip or a couple of us could raft half way and switch but half could not raft.
We were unable to book any raft trips due to busy weekend, unfortunately the kids will probably never experience this kind of rafting unless they can go as adults.
Since we traveled 2 hours to get there, waited another 2 hours as they "tried" to do something for us, and another 2 hours back, the entire day was wasted. Not to mention the gas and meal costs.
We went rafting in late June. The water was supposed to be lower at this time, but they told us it had gone up again that week for some reason. There were 5 of us, 2 of which were 12 year olds and thus not a lot of help. Our guide was Sarah and she was awesome!! We had so much fun, especially once we kind of got the hang of paddling together. I really felt safe with her and with Brad in his boat. We did get a little close to a giant boulder at cardiac corner, but it was a great time. None of us fell out. For someone looking for an adventure, this is the place to go. We will go back again!!
This was awesome! No need for cameras as they take pictures! Get some beach shoes at Walmart! You can play sand volleyball and have lunch at their property too. The plunge was awesome and Chris is the very best for teens and up! Loved it all and the scenery was unreal. Highly recommend the more advanced plunge or the quieter splash for those 7-10 ages. This is a must do and get Chris!!
This was one excellent adventure I would do again in a second, despite a driving hailstorm and rain. No leisurely float, this one. You actually had to work, which made it even more exciting. Guides are great and very well qualified, and we never felt in danger, despite the rapid flow of the river. Great adventure!!
Went here with my company in June to do a "team building exercize." I loved this river because of it's continuous movement. I've rafted before on East Coast and a lot more paddling was involved due to still water. This was a great combination of class 2,3, and 4, rapids. Our guide, Ian, was fantastic! Can't wait to do it again!
My kids are still smiling. Everying was first rate, especially the guides, I will and have recommened it to anyone going to Colorado.
Also here is a hint, don't worry about trying to take photos while on the boat. almost impossible. Instead just budget an extra $60.00 for the photo CD they offer. Our CD had approx. 40 high quality pofessional photos. Ammazing photos
Wow what a great time!
If you have or haven't rafted before, this will be great for you. My family had done the plunge and we had a great raft guide, Kelly. Ask to have Kelly and don't forget to tip the guide, it's worth every penny.
