My wife and I, with our two teenagers, had a terrific rafting trip! The rapids (classes 2, 3 and 4) were awesome! Our guide, Chris, was great. He explained what was coming up throughout our 15 mile trip on the Arkansas River. He navigated us through the rough rapids. We had a blast - and we all stayed in the... More

My teenagers and I did the silver pass zipline Classic and royal gorge 1/2 day raft. Dakota and Lizzie were our zipline guides. Safety minded professionals with relentless humor. Due to higher water volume the actual gorge section of the Arkansas river was closed for rafting so we got hit a longer section of the river with just as challenging... More

We had a terrific raft trip with this company. They cover more of the river than the other rafting companies so you get more time on the water. What made our trip extra special was our guide, Chris. He did stuff with us and the raft that made it a super fun time. I'll leave the specifics as a surprise.... More

As part of our vacation we decided to do a combination family raft and zip line trip package. I have done rafting before many many years ago but my wife and 10 year old son never had. I was a little concerned about my son as the water was high and we were told the 2.5 hour trip would run... More

That afternoon all six of us did the Bighorn Sheep Canyon rafting experience with Scottie as our guide. He was an awesome guide who made sure we had... More

On Saturday, June 27, 2015 we Classic Ziplined with Heather and Natalie in the morning and Rafted with Dallas in the afternoon. Heather and Natalie were excellent, blending a combination of instruction and humor with our group's experience. We highly recommend asking for them. We were originally scheduled to go through the Royal Gorge but the water level was too... More

We came out to Royal Gorge on Monday June 29th for our afternoon white water rafting tour after a friend suggested them. Wow was our friend right! Our raft guide, Jon, was also the leader that day and he was engaging and funny as well as personable! He didn't just raft he also told us historic stories of the landscape... More

Cody gave us everything the river could handle. Made us feel secure and took the time to explain things about the river and the experience we never before encountered. Will defiantly book again and will request Cody specifically.
