We had an outstanding time. Ryan was our guide for an AM run in upper Browns Canyon. He was great, knowledgeable about the river and surroundings. We were all first timers whitewater rafting and he made it very smooth and entertaining. Thanks Ryan for a great time!

Josh was an excellent guide. Brown's Canyon was a great rafting trip. Had fun and would love to do again soon. Easy to setup and they have all the gear there for you. Very professional and knowledgeable.

Dave was such an excellent kayak instructor and guide! He was so calm and made us feel so comfortable--even through very frustrating experiences with my lack of coordination. He tailored his instruction to specific questions and our skill level. Would definitely try another new adventure with them in a heartbeat! The entire staff and experience was exceptional!

The 10 of us had a great time rafting Brown's Canyon on a full day trip with Rich (R2) and Dan. We learned a lot about the river, rafting technique, and felt like we were in really good and safe hands. No one went for a swim, they fixed up a great lunch, and I even learned a little more... More

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'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
