I grew up running rivers in a family owned raft; so, running with a guide was a fairly new experience. We had friends with children who had never been on a river with us and, for obvious reasons, were a bit nervous. Those concerns were quickly proven unwarranted and the kids had the time of their lives! Safety was of... More

We went rafting mid July with a group of three. We got teamed up with another family of four. It was a really good time, probably the highlight of our trip. We had never been rafting before and the guide made it pretty easy for us. However, I would say I was exhausted by the end of the trip. We... More

It was a great time! Even though the water was low (it was pretty late in the season, and had just dropped a couple more inches the day before we went) it was still a good time on the water. We had Nate as our guide and couldn't have asked for a better one. He made the best out of... More

My husband and I recently visited Colorado from Michigan, and used Mountain Whitewater Descents for our rafting trip. Honestly, the fact that there was a bar on site swayed us to book there.... We were both excited but a little nervous as this was our first time rafting, but we had an absolute blast! Donny was our guide, and he... More

This was the talk of our 2-week vacation. Josh was knowledgeable, very capable and super fun!! He gave us experiences that other instructors might not have given us. He made us feel like a team and that we had the abilities of a trained team....he's that good!!! We surfed, and rammed into things (on purpose) and ran through obstacles. Our... More

The water was relatively low but our enthusiastic guide made it a technical challenge. An excellent safety briefing at their Fort Collins base ensured that we felt prepared to deal with anything the Poudre River could throw at us. 2-3 hours later we were soaked, tired, and exhilarated aboard the bus back to base. Because of its federal designation as... More
