Our family was looking for a perfect rafting trip for our first time. We were taking our 8 Yr old daughter who is a bit timid. I called Raft Masters before booking and the staff was so helpful. They explained the differences and provided a recommendation. We ended up booking the half day big horn sheep and it couldn't have... More

I've used RaftMasters many time for my clients and my family as well. Everything always goes smooth and the best way possible. Their guides are very well trained, fun, responsible and just nice people. They take pride in what they do and clients see and feel it.

We made it a day trip from Colorado Springs. I always encourage the kids to do things outside the box. This was definitely different and now they have fallen in love with it and want to go back! ! All personnel friendly and helpful. We felt very safe. I would encourage all to go and give it a try. Plus... More

My husband and I had a great experience on this trip. We chose the 1/2 day Royal Gorge trip. We were the only ones in the raft along with our guide (Steve) and a kayaker (Alan) along for our safety. The river was high so we were unable to do the Royal Gorge portion but went upstream and still hit... More

We took the train through the Royal Gorge and had breakfast while admiring the views and listening to facts about the Royal Gorge Bridge. We enjoyed the dome car, but we were free to move to the open air car for more photos. Later in the day we took a white water rafting trip with Melanie and it was stellar!... More

Highly recommend RaftMasters. We did the all day rafting trip. All the staff members we dealt with were knowledgable, helpful and friendly. The river was running exceptionally high during the period we went, and the staff made EXTRA sure that we were well prepared and safe. Our rafting "captain" was Alan, who did a GREAT job of keeping us safe... More

Raft Masters in Canon City, Colorado was exactly as their name proclaims. RAFT MASTERS!!! I would recommend Raft Masters for any adventure on the Arkansas River. Their business was well organized, tactful in dealing with the novice public and masterful on the river. Raft Masters in general and our guide, Aaron, in particular, gave us a life-time of memories and... More

I would HIGHLY recommend Raft Masters! We chose the 1/2 day trip and the experience was awesome. Our Guide (Savannah) was the best. She was very informative/knowledgable and was out to make sure we had the best experience as possible, and we did!
