New Wave Rafting is first rate, A+, Blue Ribbon! You know you are in good hands with truly experienced guides. I really did not want to go on this adventure with my husband and two teen age sons, but the younger insisted. I had a total blast! The water was beautiful. The wildlife was amazing. But the most important aspect... More

My parents booked a rafting trip for our family of six. We had two seniors (65/70), two adults and two teenage boys (15/16). Jessie was our guide - he was very friendly and knowledgable. All of us went on the lazy part of the river first. It is basically a calm 2-ish hour float trip with nice views. Wear a... More

What an incredible day our family had with the whole crew but especially our guide Kathy! Our girls are 10,8, and 6 and were excited and able to handle the trip. The river was exciting enough for the whole family. Kathy was a wealth of information about the area and all the plants and animals. We will most definitely be... More

Our family did the Taos Box with Britt as the main guide. It was a fantastic day. Great guides, experienced and nice, fun in the river, amazing landscapes. My kids (13 yo) thought it was the best day ever. This was our second trip with new wave (did the racecourse a couple of years ago) and they are a first... More

New wave rafting went above and beyond to give a wonderful experience for the whole family. They allowed our underage boys to raft since my husband and I have boated with our boys since they were able to sit. My mom wanted to go and they met all our needs. Our guide Neil was fun and informative and very safe.... More

What a great experience! We rated the Taos box on a beautiful day. Britt our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the river, the wildlife and flora. It was wonderful having lunch while the big horn sheep were having theirs on the opposite bank. This is a must do if you are in the area.

We did the Taos Box on the spur of the moment, since there hasn't been enough water until this week. Britt and Cathy were experienced and knowledgeable about the Rio Grande, the flora and fauna and the lore. It was exciting but we knew we were in great hands. Our group of six was diverse and all there to have... More

This was not our first trip through the wild and scenic stretch of the Rio Grande known as the Taos Box, but it certainly could of been the best ever. Not all river trips are the same and having a professional well trained and knowledgeable guide (Britt had over 31 years experience) equipment in tip top shape, clean and well... More

New Wave Rafting provided a great day of fun and lots of memories for our family. Very knowledgeable rafting guide, great lunch, beautiful scenery....we couldn't have asked for a better trip. The river was a little low and slow but that didn't stop us from having a great time that our 11 and 9 year old sons are still talking... More

We have rafted two different times with this company and were very pleased both times. The guides are very friendly, extremely helpful, and cautious when it comes to safety. Our group consisted of a ten year old with mild cerebral palsy, 60+ year old grandparents, teenagers, young adults, and 40 year old adults - everyone enjoyed it and was perfectly... More
