Our group of 8 had an unforgettable day with New Wave Rafting with Britt and Jessie as our guides. The lunch, the guides, the wildlife, the river itself - everything exceeded our expectations. The Taos Box is no wimpy float trip down the river and Britt and Jessie expertly guided two boats full of inexperienced rafters down and made sure... More

I've used New Wave rafting many times and as far as I'm concerned, they are the most responsible and knowledgable rafting outfit. The guides have been working on the river for decades and truly know how to keep you safe while showing you a fabulous time. Britt and Joe were our guides today (8-2-15) down the Taos Box. It was...

One of those things, "one of these days, gonna' do it!" Finally did it. Took the Monument Scenic Float, and by the time it was finished, wished we had booked into the Racecourse. Oh well, there is always next year. Was one of the most fun vacations we have ever taken. Jared, our raft guide was super. Have no doubt... More

We were soooo fortunate to have Britt Runyon as our guide! His experience, intuition and thorough knowledge of the area made the trip not only interesting and informative but allowed all of us to feel completely safe and very capable as first-time rafters. Money and time well spent and certainly one of the highlights of our trip to New Mexico!

My husband, myself and a few of our friends went through New Wave for a rafting trip on the river. We all had a blast! You will get wet, just a warning, but the front two people were soaked! There are some rapids and white water, but nothing too dangerous. I never felt like we were going to flip over... More

Joe was our veteran guide and did a great job coaching experienced and newbies alike. Nice sandwich and fruit lunch provided on shore. No equipment issues but I did have to provide a battery jump for one of the vans, then we were off and floating!

We had a wonderful time reading with New Wave rafting. Our guide Joe was very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. We felt like we were in good hands the whole time. Along with the great trip, we had a nice lunch and learned a lot about the river. We would definitely use New Wave again.

Loved our Rio Grande Gorge rafting trip with our expert guide CJ. She made the trip! Taught us how to paddle (I was a first timer) and was a wealth of information on birds, trees and history of the gorge. She was funny too! The morning was relaxing in the quieter section but there was lots to talk about and... More

What a great experience. Never thought I could White Water Raft, but viola I did! Many thanks to our wonderful Guide Joe. He was fantastic, knowledgeable and just great fun! The scenery incredible, lunch on the river perfect and the White water, totally out of control. Here's to you company for providing a safe rafting trip. Here's to Joe our... More
