We had a good time rafting the lower river with our guide Chris (at least I think that was his name, as he never came right out and introduced himself). He was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the area. He made sure everyone felt safe (and for a Mom that's very important). I would have given this... More

We had a blast taking the Upper Pigeon trip with Jared. Jared did a fantastic job of guiding us and was very helpful and entertaining as well! The entire staff including Michael and Petey couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. I suggest bypassing the larger more highly advertised outfitters and take a trip with RRA, you will not be... More

This place is seriously lacking the frills and amenities of other places but it is cheaper and fewer people. We had Jaredd as our guide and he was knowledgeable and fun.... More

We went into this experience uncertain of whether it was what we wanted to do, but it was no doubt very enjoyable. Take the trip on a hot day and you will enjoy the cold water and beautiful views for the full two hours. Our guide Joe D was fantastic in his knowledge of the river and historical information regarding... More

This was an incredible trip. My friend and I had a blast with each other and the other group on the boat with us. Our guide, Joe D, was terrific. He was fun, nice, and really knew what he was doing.I even talked to him afterward about some stuff, and he was very helpful about everything and wanted everyone to... More

Rip Roaring Adventures did an excellent job hosting, coordinating and making for a great trip for my family and me. Travis is a excellent river guide, and he seemed very genuine in his desire for his customers to enjoy themselves.
