We took the 2:30 beginners rafting trip & had a blast! Our guide, Garrett, was fun & seemed very capable. Not everyone in our group listened & followed as instructed, but our guide handled it well. We will be back!!

We took the rafting trip out of Glenwood Springs on the Roaring Fork river merging with the Colorado. Super friendly staff: Ray, Demi (our raft captain), Shaina. Very timely and organized, reasonable rates, lunch served was delicious. Safe and fun for everyone!
