This was our family's first time white water rafting so we thought we would go with a 1/2 day trip. It was so much fun. We all loved it! Next time we go I think we might try the rafting and camping trip. The guides are fun yet know their stuff. I would highly recommend WAO. The staff is kind,... More

Being this was our first sample of rafting we signed up for the Big Horn 1/2 day trip. About half way thorough the morning I was wishing we had don a full day. After a mid morning break our guide Rick ask if we had considered doing the afternoon also. I said yes and he mad the arrangements for us... More

We visited WAO in early July, on a chilly day. We rented splash jackets and wet suits, and it was still COLD!! It was my boy's first time white water rafting and we did the all day raft. The first half of the day was fine, much calmer rapids, much farther spaced out. It was cold, but fun. My oldest... More

In 2013, my husband and I decided to take our three kids on a short rafting trip while we near Canon City. At the time we chose Whitewater Adventure Outfitters because they offered a 1.5 hour trip that seemed like a good choice to see how well our kids would like rafting. As it turned out we all loved it—in... More

What an experience. Went with the whole family, and the views and experience will be memories for a lifetime. Sean was an incredible guide, and his knowledge of the river and region were tremendous.

Yesterday was my 3rd time rafting with WAO, and have enjoyed each trip. Had my daughter & niece with and they loved it. Eric was our guide, had a great sense of humor & did a great job making everyone comfortable. WAO may not be the biggest or flashiest, but they're the best.

Words can't explain how much fun it was you have to try this if you never did it before. Austin was our guide and he was just wonderful he knew what he was doing just a great time with the family. Like I said words can't explain how much fun it was.

When we were visiting our grown daughter in Colorado, we planned a few excursions to do with her. Unfortunately, life shifted a curve for our daughter. We called WAO relayed the information about our daughter's circumstances. The customer service was exceptional. The company worked with us so both parties were happy. We definately plan to attend again next year when... More

This trip down the Arkansas was a lifetime memory. The small family like feel of WAO made it feel authentic, non corporate, and personalized. Our guide Rick was knowledgable, friendly and entertaining- regaling us with history and personal stories that had our laughs echoing off the canyon walls. I'd recommend them 100 times over. At no point did our group... More
