My mom had gotten me a full day kayaking lesson with RMOC for my birthday. I went with my BF and the two of us had no idea what to expect...this was my first time ever in a whitewater kayak and I was super nervous. We started out in the morning on a lake and progressed to a very mellow... More

We loved our guide Zack for our rock climbing adventure! My 11 year old son had a blast & the spot we climbed was spectacular! Highly recommend!

We've now been on 3 rafting trips over the last 3 summers with RMOC and keep coming back for a reason. Everyone involved with RMOC is top notch, especially the guides who are totally professional and totally friendly. We generally take 10 year old kids along and they have done an excellent job of making the Brown's Canyon runs both... More

I booked a half-day stand-up paddle boarding lesson and had one the best times of my life. The setting was absolutely beautiful--a small reservoir overlooking snow-capped mountains---and my instructor, April, was everything I could have hoped for: knowledgable, patient, funny, kind, safety-conscious, and able to explain things simply and clearly. We had a great time together---I even enjoyed falling off... More

We booked a guide for rock climbing (Ryan) on one day, and another for mountain biking (Shannon) on the next day. Both were super-friendly and clearly loved their jobs. I told them, "We're computer people. Not very hard-core, but we want to get out and have some fun." Each chose locations that provided just the right amount of challenge, scenery,... More

We all just loved our rafting trip and our guides were just the best. This is a smaller company I think and it shows with the personal service. Can't wait to get back.

This was a family trip, six adults, three children, and two dogs. We had a great time floating down the river. It was a beautiful day, sunny, and we avoided the rain the whole day. Our guides were very informative and we all just had a great time.

After working with several other outfitters for a couple of years while visiting Breck, our family wanted to step up our experience. My daughter rock climbs and we had some kayak experience so we asked around about who might be able to do both. We trusted the folks at Kodi as they have given us great experiences in the past...

We were four, one of which had never rafted before, the others not for about 25 years, so we were a little unsure how this would go, but Tyler took great care of us. We took a half-day trip through Brown's canyon when the water was flowing at around 1,700cfm and had a blast! They called it class 3 but... More
