We had a party of eight and we split up into two rafts Kyle was our guide for our 1/2 day trip down the Royal Gorge. He was fantastic keep us entertained the whole time. No one was in danger the whole time and we had class II, III and IV rapids. I highly recommend Raft Masters for your adventure.

Raft Masters is great. Organized, friendly and experienced. My first rafting experience and I'd absolutely will go back to Raft Masters. The guide I had, Mark was a lot of fun and told stories. Also had me paddling correctly the very first rapids we hit.

And I do mean "cool!" Do not let them talk you into not wearing a wet suit! That ice water is COLD! I took my teen daughters and we had a great time even though it was a bit nippy when the waves hit. You must do it at least once in your life! I purchased the CD of pictures... More

This was one of the best rafting trips we've done. Went for the more advanced trip. The organization is professional, safe and fun. Aaron was a great guide and made the trip excellent! I'm recommending anyone rafting in this area use this outfit.

Best rafting we have done. We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids). We did royal gorge with Mark as our guide. He was the best. Really made us feel safe. He also gave us so much history and information about what was around is on the river. All the guides looked like they were very good.... More

Had a great experience with Raft Masters. I encountered 3 - 5 guides during my rafting experience (from check-in to check-out), and they were all extremely personable, and really knowledgeable. We had a great day with them!

My husband, two 13 year old girls and I rafted with our awesome guide, Courtney, yesterday. Raft masters offered a 20% discount for Saturday's in August when I booked online. This was the only discount I found of this type when looking for other rafting companies. We rafted the 1/2 day Royal Gorge. It was awesome with a few Class... More

The staff were terrific. We did the Sheep Canyon section, which was perfect for my 10 year old daughter. The wonderful service and experience allowed her to continue to fall in love with rafting and want to do it again. Thanks.

This was my first white water rafting experience and I loved it! 4 of us rafted down the Royal Gorge with an experienced and entertaining guide. It had class 3 & 4 rapids that day. Can't wait to do it again!
