A great adventure for the entire family. Our guide Mario was excellent, always in full control of the raft. He made us feel as though we could conquer anything. We would like to return and raft earlier in the season when the water flow is higher. Free picture CD was a nice touch.

This was a fabulous experience. I have never been white water rafting before (I am from PA). The staff was experienced, friendly, informative, through, funny, and just plain nice to all of my family. I would do this again in a heart beat. Our head guide, Jim, certainly put all of us at ease with his information along with his... More

We picked Clear Creek Rafting due to its close proximity to Denver. The trip was competitively priced and included a wet suit, helmet, etc. Usually, morning is the best time to raft since thunderstorms are always a threat in the summer. Our guide Ivan was really great and we will request him the next time that we raft Clear Creek.... More

We had Dylan as our raft guide on the very last day they were offering the intermediate trip down clear creek. This meant the water level was very low and left more rocks exposed and required more work on everyone's part. The most challenging part of the trip was having to wait for the raft in front of us guided... More

We actually booked with another rafting company. We went on the creek at the same time they did. We had 2 rafts with 4 people in each raft...they had 8 rafts and 6 to 8 people in each raft. They kindly let us in first...but then crowded in too soon. The lady guide in the boat behind us kept yelling... More

My family (2 adults & one 10 year old) did the beginner trip as our first rafting experience. We were nervous but the staff was very professional and concerned with safety. By the time we got on the river we knew exactly what we were supposed to do & had a great time. Riley was our guide & we couldn't... More

This was the first time my husband, our daughter and I had been rafting, and we were all a little apprehensive. Ken was the lead guide, and he did a great job explaining everything we would need to do prior to going to the launch site. Safety was definitely a priority. German was our guide, and he made the whole... More

My family just finished a 1/2 day trip on the Arkansas River. We had a blast. Our guide JC was awesome, funny with his corny jokes, informative with some history and fun facts. The trip was awesome. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would definitely recommend Clear Creek Rafting to anyone and everyone looking for a great... More

It would probably be an understatement to say I was a little anxious about our family's first rafting trip. However, thanks to our expert guide Jake, there wasn't a moment when I did not have faith that we were in good hands. His skills and experience were evident and we had a great time! We are ready to go again!

Had a great trip down the river with Dustin on Monday! He was knowledgeable and funny and, as someone who was nervous, made me feel completely comfortable. Made for a really great day on the river!
