Our trip to Durango would not have been complete without a trip down the Animas. This is a very family-friendly activity that I highly recommend. Since we have young children we went with a rafting tour instead of the easy rent-a-tube vendors that our friends with older children used. The Durango Rafting Company wasn't the most professional company but it... More

The river rafting company could have been more honest with us. The water was I guess pretty low or lower than they had told us at their registration desk and there really was no real "white" water. There were a few fun spots where we splashed each other with our paddles and could jump out of the raft on to... More

We traveled to Durnago with our kids, ages 12 and 8 and really enjoyed our trip. The water level was low which meant catching many rocks on the lower Animas but we still had fun. Consider renting the duckies, which are the inflatable kayaks. The kids learned to manuever them pretty quickly. My 8 year old was a little neverous... More

We booked on the internet via their booking system and although end of season, they were still booking for sept and we received email confirmation. Duly turned up at their office for booked rafting trip, but it was all closed. Eventually got hold of someone on the phone who was unapologetic and didnt seem to care that they were not... More

What fun! We took a great trip down the Animas River with the Durango Rafting Company. Our guide was fun, and always made us feel safe, especially important since one of our party was somewhat fearful of rafting...no problems! The water level was low enough so that there was no fear of getting dumped. We will do this again!! We... More

So today we rafted the animas river with Durango rafting company. The staff was very friendly and ensured we had a great time. Will definitely use them again when in town. Make sure you do the duckies!!!

Durango Rafting Company is one of the smaller companies operating out of Durango. We found them through TripAdvisor and were very pleased. It was late July, so the river level was down, but we still had a really good time. My kids, 14, 13, and 10 went along and enjoyed Robby, our guide. They drive you several miles upstream and... More

This was our first family experience on a river raft. Our 5 and 7 year old children had a blast! The two hour trip was about the right amount of time. Our guide, Kenji, stopped along the way for all of us to swim in the river. In addition, our kids got a thrill out of some light rapids and... More
