Such a fun experience to share with my son. The staff was so helpful and I appreciated the bus that took us back up the river. This allowed us to spend more time enjoying the river. Unfortunately I forgot a strap for my eye glasses and almost lost them on the first ride down. My husband had returned to hotel... More

The staff was very friendly and informative. We rented paddle boards for the first time and they explained everything we needed to know. They helped us with where to go and the different lakes in the area. Would highly recommend and will rent from them again. Thank you for being so wonderful:)

Loved the way they ran this trip! Very professional. Great experience! The guide's paddle hit an eddy at the end of the trip, and she told us "keep paddling" and then proceeded to follow all the recommendations for leaving the boat accidentally! She was fine, we were fine, and the trip was still a success!

We had some time in Pagosa Springs and my son wanted to Kayak the river. We rented a Kayak from Pagosa Outside and the people were very helpful. My son ran the river several times. One of the staff came and watched on her break and cheered him on as he ran the rapids.

I have to say that everyone at Pagosa Outside was wonderful and so nice. Rafting was fantastic and Haley did a fantastic job making it fun! Returning as soon as I can, loved it.

This was part of my 30th Birthday present, something I have always wanted to do. We did Mesa Canyon, as it turned out, the last trip of the season due to the water levels. Chandler was our guide, he was great & lots of fun. In hindsight we could have done a harder trip, but never having done it before,... More

I went on 2 raft trips in one week on different parts of the San Juan River with James as a guide. Pagosa Outside did a great job of outfitting us correctly and James provided a wonderful rafting experience. We love Pagosa Springs and this is a great addition to our list of fun things to do in Pagosa Springs.... More

We had one person who was worried about the rafting trip but our boat captain Haley was AMAZING! She made it fun with her bubbly personality and let us be loud and giggle. This was so much fun and we are coming back again. If you go make sure to ask for Haley.

Visited pagosa springs with friends to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and decided to do a rafting trip. Everyone we dealt with from the moment we signed up (with Maddie) to our rafting guide, Haley, was a pure joy! Haley made my first rafting trip exciting and unforgettable! Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and lots of fun! We will definitely tell... More
