At first I thought this was going to be one of those super boring commercial things where everyone is herded around and forced to "bond" with each other, but the into was super quick, the bus ride was fast and informative and Aaron was super entertaining! We were lucky enough to have Aaron as our guide too and he totally... More

The rafting was great, don't get me wrong, but customer service...terrible! The office manager had an ego that could hardly fit in the office. When we asked a logistics question we were humiliated. To top it off, the office manager snaked his way outside to watch our every move, even when we went to our car to grab our camera.... More

Last week, we used Raft Masters for an intermediate level run down Clear Cleek. The guides were thoughtful and diligent about our safety, making sure we had our life jackets and helmets on and secured correctly. We had a BLAST!! We found several coupons on-line and they were gladly accepted by the staff. I can't say one bad thing about... More

We rafted with Raft Masters a few weeks ago. Claus (spelling?) was our guide and we had a super time. The creation experienced rafting is truly awesome! The experience provided through RaftMasters was perfect. Seriously, we couldn't have asked for a better day! Raft Masters provided a fun, yet safe, experience. I've rafted with other companies and have felt that... More

This was my first white water rafting experience. The staff was great and knowledgable. We had a scary moment on the water and it was handling very well by our guide Kurt. Brady gave great instructions on the bus, and this information was very helpful on our trip.. I would recommend this company for their friendliness and expertise.

Jessie, our raft master guide was very informative. We went through some difficult sections of the river and she lead us through without a scratch. She was also very friendly and made the experience awesome. Next time I come I will request her as my guide. I give the company and Jessie 5 stars.

This was our first time visiting Raft Masters in Idaho Springs, but we have visited their Canon City location several times before. As expected, they were excellent! The location was easy to get to and the staff were all friendly and made sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule. Our guide Sean (or Shawn?) was a great teacher, was friendly,... More

This was my first time ever whitewater rafting and I'm glad we chose Raft Masters. Their guides know what they are doing to keep you safe and have a great time. The scenery is beautiful and the rapids are challenging while not being too scary. I'd recommend these guys 100%
