About 2 years ago my husband and I took a rafting trip down clear creek river in Idaho springs. We used a large rafting company because we did not know otherwise. We overpaid, it took forever to get started, and because we were in such a large group, it didn't seem personal at all. We were required to wear a... More

Our first rafting trip with our 9, 7 and 5 year olds was a huge success thanks to Ryan, Molly and Steve. We were very concerned about the safety of the water this time of year. Not only did Ryan very professionally reassure us that it was safe, he kayaked along side of our raft the entire way just to... More

Had a blast again. Last year the river level was low so we enjoyed the lower end of the river. This year the snow pack was good so we were taken further up river and got to enjoy more rapids and great knowledgeable rafting guides. We will definitely be back with them if we come back next year. Thank you... More

Rafting with Molly and Ryan was fantastic. We are a local family and have been rafting several times with different companies. These guys were the best by far. Ryan guided and kept the trip, which was on high water, safe, fun, and educational! The best part was it was private and personal. We were the only ones in our boat,... More

We hooked up with Ryan for a very enjoyable afternoon on the Roaring Forks and Colorado rivers in class 2-3 waters. This was exactly what we were looking for and Ryan made sure that we had a good trip. I would highly recommend Up Tha Creek.

We had a great time with Up Tha Creek. They were very professional and everything was better than promised. Our group consisted of four kids ages ranging from 4-12 plus six adults. Up Tha Creek accomodated everyones wishes of using rafts, double kayaks and single kayaks so everyone was happy and we were still able to raft as a group.... More

I was able to join up with some friends and raft Gore Canyon with Up Tha Creek. The trip was phenomenal itself and our guide, Ryan, made it even better. He was very safety oriented and remained calm even when the thrill was overwhelming. If you are looking for class IV and V rafting, this is the company to go... More

There aren't many people I would feel comfortable with going through Gore Canyons class 5 rapids, but I felt completely comfortable the whole way through.. We took perfect lines and our guide, Ryan, knew exactly what to do in every situation.. Overall it was an incredible trip and I highly recommend using Up Tha Creek..

Thank You for your business and most of all for your candid comments. We are happy you felt comfortable in the raging Class V waters of Gore Canyon with us! Though Gore Canyon is the best whitewater available in Colorado, please don't forget us in the future. Variety of trips is one thing that separates us from other outfitters in... More

As a fellow rafting guide this trip was incredible. If you're looking for a high skill, high adventure trip this is the place to be. I could not imagine having a better guide than Ryan. He knows the river and even does completions on it. He is superb. You need to be comfortable swimming big water as well as comfortable... More

So glad I rented a tube from these guys. Quality tubes that are durable, fun, and most importantly keep your butt afloat! Rented the tube, lifejacket, and river shoes for the day with my buddy. The bike shop guys gave us a shuttle to river so we could leave our car at the end. It worked out great! At the... More
