We spent the afternoon tubing down the river and had a great time. Both our kids, 11 and 13, loved doing this.

We took our 5 & 7 year old tubing on the river ($15 for 2 hours, $25 for all day). The shuttle drives you about a mile upriver and drops you off with your tube. Super friendly driver (don't remember his name, guy from Texas). It's a beautiful float down river - there are small rapids so I had my... More

We recently took an all-day raft trip (the upper and lower Piedra) with Pagosa Outside. We were absolutely delighted with our experience and will go with them again the next time we have the opportunity. Let's start with professionalism. Since both my wife and I are a bit older than the typical whitewater rafters, we were concerned about picking a... More

Our rafting trip through Pagosa Outside was wonderful. Our tour guide, Matt, did a great job and was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made it an enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone. The San Juan River is surrounded by beautiful scenery and the rapids were perfect for us. Overall we had a great time and would love to... More

We took the West Fork trip down the San Juan, and I have to give Pagosa Outside outstanding marks. The staff at the shop was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Mother Nature was less than accommodating to us with chill winds, rain, and even hail. Despite that, we had a fabulous time. The equipment that Pagosa Outside provided was modern, clean,... More

My husband and I took our 11 and 7 year old on the Mesa Canyon trip and had a blast. The staff is very professional and knowledgeable! We had a lot of fun and felt very safe the entire trip!

The staff at Pagosa Outside is amazing. We tubed for two hours it was a blast. Pagosa Outside offers a shuttle service for the tubing. If you want to tube this is the place to go. The staff made our day on the water super fun. Thanks.

Thanks for your review. We take having fun very seriously here at Pagosa Outside! If you thought that tubing was a blast, come back in May or June and check out our rafting trips on the San Juan. More

My wife and I went on the inaugural Chama River Raft/Kayak trip (3 days/2 nights). It was the break we'd been looking for. Fantastic scenery, good mix of relaxing current, ripples, and the occasional rapid (particularly the last day). As good as the river itself was, the support we got from the guides was even better. The food was fantastic,... More

We rented the tubes for 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As easy as tubing may sound you are still in a wild river. In our case, the river was low which meant that you had to avoid rocks and maneuver to avoid shallow water, and yes, occasionally walk to deeper water. If you are not sure what to expect,... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. You bring up a great point about expectations during a tubing trip. A lot of our guests have tubed previously on other rivers like the Salt, Frio, or Guadalupe which are very "lazy" rivers compared to the San Juan. They are typically surprised by our rocky... More

We did the 2-hour tubing package and had a fun time. River was low, but it was almost better that way for the younger ones with us. The shuttle service was nice - only odd that it doesn't start until 11 though they open at 10. We just did one lap on the shuttle, then played on the tubes near... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you had fun. It is neat but not unusual that you got to see deer on your float. Even though the stretch of river we tube is right in Pagosa, some times you can feel like you're in the middle of nowhere! I would like to address your confusion regarding... More
