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

My friend had never been rafting before. She tries to be adventurous, but she's pretty reserved and cautious. I'm the opposite. She agreed to do the Mesa Canyon trip. Julia was fun but safe with us. We had a wonderful time getting to know the other couple in the boat with us 3. The scenery was spectacular. The price was... More

I did this twice, once on the modest level and once on a 3-4 level. Other than the fact the water was frigid, everyone at Pagosa Outside did an excellent job of making sure we had a great time. I would recommend it for just about anyone.

Ive been coming to Pagosa Springs with family and friends for several years. Ive taken people rafting every time we come. We have always used Pagosa Outside as our outfitter. We have always been treated very well, and have a wonderful time. I just brought my family (my wife and I have sons 19 & 21) and two families with... More

Thanks for your review and kind words. We are lucky to have such competent guides and knowledgeable staff that do everything they can to make sure our guests have a great experience. The spring weather has been interesting, to say the least. More snow in the mountains means more water in the river! We hope to see you soon on... More

My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Pagosa Springs but have never been here when we could white water raft. We got to go today with James and his team at Pagosa Outside. Great views and lots of water action. If you are adventurist, try it. We went for the 3 to 4 hour ride and... More

Thanks for rafting with us and thanks for your review. The Mesa Canyon trip you took is the trip that Pagosa is known for. Lots of cool history, geology, nature, and fun splashy whitewater for the whole family. Kudos from folks who drag race cars for thrills means that we must be doing something right. Good luck and keep it... More

Easy to park and walk around. Beautiful parks, trees and walking trails.Pet Friendly and lots of seats. We were there on a weekday so it wasn't overly crowded and you can feel the springs from anywhere in the area.

The people of Pagosa Outside are outstanding! Super friendly, very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and them really seem to love what they are doing. Our family has been up three times this year from New Mexico, and each day spent on the river has been a lot of fun for all. We even got to see deer come right... More

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