Beau, thank you for making our day so much fun! You were an amazing river guide. Very knowledgeable and very fun. We felt safe the entire time. :). The Durango Rafting team made our special day very enjoyable!

We were in the area & decided around lunch to see if we could take a rafting trip that day. They were fully booked on many of the trips, understandably, but they were very nice about booking us into the latest trip of the day, which at two hours was a little less than we might have chosen but we...

This was the second year we used this company. We have used others in the past and prefer Durango Rafting Co BY FAR! They have friendly, experienced guides. Their prices are reasonable and they are very family friendly. Highly recommend!!!

This company was very accommodating for our group and we had a wonderful experience. We had a party of 8 and some had to meet us up there after work. They stayed a little later just so we could all ride together. Thanks for a wonderful ride.

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
