Great day tubing. We had read all the reviews so we were prepared. Water was cool, nature and horses...beautiful. We were surprised by the park patrol boat, unfortunately as we were disembarking. We had read it was a little hard to get out at point 4. Add to that, the noise and wake from the patrol boat, it added to... More

I took my 12 year old out for the first time and I have to say Glenn was spectacular as a guide. It was just the two of us and Glenn on the raft so I was thinking it might not be as fun as a full group, but I was wrong. Glenn added lots of fun facts about the... More

What a fun and relaxing way to spend 4 hours!! The scenery was gorgeous - complete with multiple wild horses on the bank of the river! The random marshmallow launches at rafters was a blast! The staff from the check-in personnel to the bus drivers were super friendly and offered lots of helpful 'survival" tips. Do not forget the sunscreen!!!

This was a great trip (we did the one day trip) and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting or living in AZ. The company was very organized and the raft guides were very nice and laid back. More importantly, they knew their stuff and how to 1.have fun 2. keep clients safe. The area is absolutely beautiful and on... More

I booked a trip for me and 10 of my colleagues as a team building activity. What an awesome trip from beginning to end. The staff was very professional and made everyone feel at ease, especially those that felt their swimming skills were not very strong. Brian gave an excellent safety and training lesson before we entered the water. Our... More

Had a wonderful day rafting the Salt with my wife and the great Johnston family. Kady our boat guide was friendly and had us running the rapids in style. Thanks SRR!

My wife and I took our two teenage daughters for a two day trip just before Easter and had a great time. The food was well planned out and delicious. Our guide, Flint, has a culinary background and always added the right touch to each meal. Each guide we encountered was friendly, outgoing, and great at anticipating our needs, not... More

So glad to hear you agree with running the 2 day raft trip this way. It is pretty neat to run a small part of the river (3miles) twice at different times of the day and there is the huge convenience of car camping at our base camp. Our 3-5 day trip is the way to see the whole river... More

Me and my friend took our 14 year old sons on a full day trip during their spring break. Glad we did. The staff was fun and knowledgable and provided for a great trip. Scenery is amazing. Best part about it was no cell phone coverage so you can really get away. Would recommend to everyone.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review and here is to hoping cell coverage never enters the Salt River Canyon! Possible bumper sticker "Cell no to coverage, Keep the SRC disconnected!" More

This was my first time whitewater rafting, and I am really grateful that it was with this company! They were professional, fun, and very patient! I went with a group that was celebrating a friend's 60th birthday, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate! Absolutely everything was provided for in the way of equipment, and they gave...
