This is year four of us using Raft Masters as our go to rafting outfitter for the Royal Gorge and for Clear Creek. Everyone in the office, especially Kizzy who deals with me every year, makes us feel like family when we are there. The guides are all awesome, very experienced, friendly, and helpful. The equipment is all in good... More

Fun River section. Did the Intermediate (some would say advanced) section. Guides were Dave and Nikki. Never thought of that river being so exciting and continuous. Have many years experience and that topped out as one of the best on my list of small fast rivers class III-IV. Staff was courteous and professional. Keep up the good work guys.

First time rafting on the intermediate course. Instructors are great, really friendly and informative. Only about 3 rapids on the course that are anything worthwhile and the water wasn't too low. Expensive for photos and the equipment (wetsuits, boots etc) stinks and is pretty worn and torn! But all in all a good day.

1st time rafting and it was so much fun! Had a blast! Water was low - so it was a bit challenging to get through some spots but there were rapids. Guides are very experienced and strong having to guide the raft with novice rafters. Most certainly would do again!

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.
