I never went water rafting, and by far this experience goes in the books! Besides the awesome experience, the crew at Raft Master made it more memorable. Ask for Chris, he did not only tough us the safety of rafting, but gave us an awesome history of Cañon city! Thanks Raft Masters!

This is the only company that would still take rafting trip in late September. Even though the rest advertised May thru Sept most close right after Labor Day. BL was an awesome rafting guide. We had a great time on the Arkansas river. We definitely choose this rafting company again.

My family had a GREAT time on the all day trip through the Royal Gorge. Booking our trip was a breeze. The safety talk on the trip to raft was serious and fun all in one. Ryan our guide was very knowledgeable about the river & surrounding area. He made the trip fun yet safe. I definitely recommend booking with... More

My friend and I had a great time on our rafting trip down the gorge this past August. I didn't know that I would be going down the "gorge", since I didn't book the trip, my friend did. I thought it was going to be the easier part of the river and I was getting pretty nervous on our ride... More

My wife and I (my age 59) had a great half day tour. It was one of the highlights of our 4 states trip. Chuck our guide was very knowledgeable about the river & surrounding area. The state of Colorado is just beautiful and to see it white water rafting is so memorable. The company is very professional with Chuck... More

When my wife and I were looking for activities that could include not only our 16 and 13-year-old daughters, but also our 17-month-old daughter, not many fit the bill. But Raft Masters had a combination Royal Gorge rail/Family Float package that was perfect. For about 3 hours we rode up and down the Royal Gorge on a train complete with... More

My wife and I had our 13 year old niece in town (Colorado Springs) and wanted to take her out to experience Colorado and have some fun. We founds RM to be the cheapest (plus military discount) so we gave it a shot. We signed up for the half-day royal gorge trip, and when we got there it turned out... More

Will and his crew are top notch. We took the full day tour "Road To Glory" and had a great time. We were lucky enough to have not only Will driving and guiding, but also 3 others from his staff who were learning the route or just along for the ride. Their knowledge of the surroundings and history of the... More
