We went with our daughter and some of her colleagues, for a birthday experience, and what a great experience. None of us had ever done this before. The river was in full flow,very fast, very big waves. But after a thorough briefing from Jason, we boarded our raft with Greg for a wild, exhilarating journey. It is approx 8 miles,... More

Everyone had a lot of fun just like the other reviews have said, so I want to write a bit more about the safety. Walking up to the little shop along 76, we had a moment where we thought, 'is this place going to be safe?' Our expectations were not only met, but far exceeded. Before we left the shop,... More

We had a fantastic exhilarating water rafting trip on the Clear Creek river. Jason, our guide was very good and led us through many rapids. This is one of the smaller companies right downtown idaho springs. The people working there are friendly and their equipment looked like new.

Our guide Jason was very well prepared and knowledgeable. He made us feel safe through the whole process. Ron was very professional and made us feel like part of their group. We will go back..

Having never gone rafting on anything resembling rapids before we were a little concerned about the accommodations for various ages and, let's be brutally honest, fitness levels. We had no concerns once we hit the water. The training prior to putting in the creek was thorough and our guide was clearly a subject matter expert. Then came the fun! The... More

What an adventure! Rocky Mountain Whitewater rafting is top-notch and fully delivered an amazing experience. We were a group of 50-somethings looking for a memorable time and this totally rocked. Even though the water was cold due to snow melt from higher elevations, we felt warm and dry with the gear provided. Jason, our guide, thoroughly prepared us beforehand and... More

Rocky Mountain Whitewater Rafting company provided a phenomenal trip for 8 friends out looking to start a bachelor party off right. We took our trip at the start of the season, with water levels high, which made for a thrilling ride. I was admittedly a bit skeptical at first, partially due to the lack of experience in our rafters, but... More

I went with my son who is in his mid 20's, So the choices below didn't really fit. My son got ejected from the raft but since he was trained he knew what to do and the support personnel were able to reel him in to safety. I wish he had worn his Go Pro!
