“Great white water trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This was our first time visiting Raft Masters in Idaho Springs, but we have visited their Canon City location several times before. As expected, they were excellent! The location was easy to get to and the staff were all friendly and made sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule. Our guide Sean (or Shawn?) was a great teacher, was friendly, and fun - I think he really wanted everyone to have the best (and safest) experience they could. The water was excellent and all the above put together made for an amazing trip! We will definitely be using Raft Masters the next time we come through Idaho Springs - we just can't get enough of the good times we have with them. The only drawback with this location is that there are not lockers to store your belongings in, so you have to lock them in your car. That is a minor issue and otherwise everything was great!

This is the place to go whitewater rafting in Colorado!! The Guides are the best with a friendly atmosphere and great prices. They even have wetsuits, helmets, splash shirt, booties all included in the one price, no additional fees!

“A great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

This was my first time ever whitewater rafting and I'm glad we chose Raft Masters. Their guides know what they are doing to keep you safe and have a great time. The scenery is beautiful and the rapids are challenging while not being too scary. I'd recommend these guys 100%

“A great time was had by all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Three in our family did the Intermediate Trip on Clear Creek for 2.5 hrs. recently. All loved it - it was the highlight of our vacation. The guide was extremely good, and the trip was challenging and fun. We even bought the photo at the end - the photographer did a great job! Really nice people who know what they are doing. Thanks, Raft Masters!
