I've been on multiple trips with Clear Creek Rafting Company. Overall, they have their act together. Clear Creek is a great place for rafting when the river is high (650cfs+), which is usually mid- to late-June, Clear Creek Rafting Company offers multiple levels of trips from Beginner (Class II/III), for children down to 7 or 8, Intermediate (Class III/IV), and...

I was on a short trip to Denver, but I could not miss this attraction. We went with friends to Idaho Springs and there we found the clear creek company, by chance, They made us live one of the best 45 minutes in our lives. The guys (mentors) were splendid and the adventure was a pure delight.

This was my second time with this company (fourth overall) and always very impressed. They are professional guides, knowledgeable and friendly. We were hoping to do an intermediate run, but the water levels were to low. As it turns out, this worked out better for us anyhow, because on of the persons in our group rafting had never gone before.

We rafted with Clear Creek Rafting in Aug '15 and had a blast! My parents (in their 70s), my kids (7 and 9), and we did the beginner tour, and it was the perfect pace and length for all of us. And I don't think my kids, my 7 yr old son especially, have ever had so much fun! My... More

I am so glad I chose Clear Creek Rafting. We had a blast on our first (but not last) rafting adventure. All equipment is provided (except booties - $3 extra), and no extra charge for photos! Great staff, and our guide, Chole, was awesome. We'll be back next June.

We had a wonderful experience with our guide, David Bunch. We felt like we we're in competent hands! Couldn't believe that wet suits, splash jackets, life jackets, and a DVD of photos from photographers placed at strategic spots were all included in the basic price. Booties were only $3 to rent. It was an overall FUN experience!!!

My husband, my 2 siblings, and I, all in our 50s, decided to try whitewater rafting. It's been on my bucket list since my husband went a couple of times with our sons on a Boy Scout trip. We signed up for the Beginner trip, which was 6-7 miles of rafting on class 1-3 rapids. We had Josh as our... More

The whole outfit was awesome. We went on the half day Long Horn trip. I especially liked that everything is included in your initial fee. That even includes a CD of photos from the trip. Our guide Trevor aka Shortcake was great too. Always made sure we were safe but also that everyone has having a fun time. He was... More

We chose Clear Creek Rafting Company for our 'advanced rafting trip', and I am glad we did. Staff and guides were knowledgeable and took their time to explain all safety procedures. The trip was very exciting and adventurous - our guide made sure it was a fun and gave good instructions. The CD with pictures afterwards at no extra cost... More
