Our groups age ranged from 4 years old through their 40's and everyone had a great time. We did the Beginner, and it was easy, but fun. Our 10 year old's favorite part was "Riding The Bull" holding on to the frond rope and riding with his legs over the front of the boat. If we would have been on... More

As a 57 year old woman I was a little uncertain about whether I was up to the intermediate level of rafting that my large group ( part of a wedding party) had selected. But I decided that I can't exactly wait to get younger to try out whitewater rafting for the first time. It was exhilarating! All of the... More

Took the family on a rafting trip on the 16th. Very good price, Jessie was excellent and kept us from becoming a member of the Clear Creek Swimming Club. Would do it again!

Great staff... safety first... good times a close second. First time rafting for most in our party. We chose the Intermediate trip based on staff recommendation and the fact that it was low water season. Were 2 families with teenage girls and allow they had to split us into 2 groups, our teenagers went in a raft by themselves and... More

This was my first time rafting, went with 4 friends, on intermediate level rapids, 3hr trip. Guides: Wolf and Gretta were both awesome. Funny and knowledgeable. Also gave some great advice for other activities. Price: Excellent, at $40 a person with a coupon, unreal price. Only $3 for water shoes (optional), wetsuits and other optional gear were free. Overall: extremely... More

My wife, brother-in-law and buddy went on this trip, and all I've gotta say is ask for that crazy dude Raevski. If you want instructions that help you fall off the raft - he does it. If you want to hit every rock in the water - he'll do it. If you want to be scared for your children's lives... More

A friend referred me to Liquid Descent..he's getting thanks today! Our guide Max was great...very informed about the area, always watching over us first-timers and had a great personality. The whole team was very helpful and concerned about our safety...much appreciated since I had a teenager and an eight year old. Would definitely come back and recommend to friends. Max-thanks...

I randomly found Liquid Descent online as a place to go rafting for the first time while visiting Denver. The staff was friendly, informative, and funny. The price of 50$ for an intermediate half day rafting trip was extremely reasonable. Our guide Max was extremely knowledgeable and guided us with ease through the class 3 and 4 rapids. When we...

This was my secondd time rafting down clear creek with Liquid Descent and each time was an amazing experience! Had a blast with both instructors and great time hitting the rapids! They were all knowledgeable about each rapid and instructed the boat how to paddle safely to have a good time!!

Our guide, Jordan, was awesome. Everyone here loves what they do and you can really tell. The beginner route is just the right amount of a challenge and fun. Can't wait to come back!
