Having recently retiring, it was time to Bucket List with my lady, who has miraculously entered remission from a long bout with a rare cancer. Our first venture into proving that heaven doesn't want me & hell is afraid I'd take over was taking on the Colorado rapids. We were hesitant, knowing the rough waters might be daunting, but the...

My husband and I had so much fun on this trip!!! We started the day with the half day Jeep tour with our guide, Mel. He was so informative and the trail was just like we expected it to be, straight to the top of a mountain! The views were awesome and the pictures turned out even better. Mel is... More

This was our first time rafting and we didn't know what to expect. The guide (Erin) was extremely entertaining and made even the van ride up the river a blast. The Arkansas ride was awesome!! Definitely check out Raft Masters

Our family traveled to Colorado without much planned to do, we ended up finding a few brochures from our hotel for rafting trips. We called Dennis (super nice, who turned out to be the owner) and he said they weren't planning on starting the season until Saturday :/ we were planning to leave Saturday so without hesitation he made some...

My friends and I myself had the best day! The whole experience was awesome. The reservations were easy, they gave us gear to use, great prep before we went out and our guide did a great job and he made it really fun. The pics turned out good and the scenery was amazing. Perfect day!

Raft Masters was the BEST company we have ever used rafting! I have had back surgery and they set us up with a SR. guide (Chuck) to take us down the Royal Gorge. He had a great deal of experience and without that I would not have been able to participate on this rafting trip. I did not have to... More

We had so much fun rafting down the Arizona River with our guide, Mark. This is a top notch rafting company. Safety is very important to them, which made me feel comfortable bringing our 3 kids with us. The trip was the perfect length and everything was explained very well, so we could relax and have fun. Raft Masters made... More

We cant say enough about the fun we had on the whitewater trip down the royal gorge. The water is not running as fast as it would be in the spring, so this was the perfect trip for us! So fun,many laughs! This was our first rafting trip and I wish we would have booked 2 trips!
