“Fantastic trip!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Last week, we used Raft Masters for an intermediate level run down Clear Cleek. The guides were thoughtful and diligent about our safety, making sure we had our life jackets and helmets on and secured correctly. We had a BLAST!!

We found several coupons on-line and they were gladly accepted by the staff. I can't say one bad thing about this company. You can't go wrong booking with Raft Masters.

“Choose Raft Masters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We rafted with Raft Masters a few weeks ago. Claus (spelling?) was our guide and we had a super time. The creation experienced rafting is truly awesome! The experience provided through RaftMasters was perfect. Seriously, we couldn't have asked for a better day! Raft Masters provided a fun, yet safe, experience. I've rafted with other companies and have felt that they are much more pushy/touristy/"buy our t-shirts"y than Raft Masters was...I did buy a T-Shirt though ;). Awesome activity. Awesome day. Awesome staff. If you even think you love the outdoors, let Raft Masters make you sure of it! :)

“Whitewater rafting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This was my first white water rafting experience. The staff was great and knowledgable. We had a scary moment on the water and it was handling very well by our guide Kurt. Brady gave great instructions on the bus, and this information was very helpful on our trip.. I would recommend this company for their friendliness and expertise.

“Jessie the guide is awesome!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Jessie, our raft master guide was very informative. We went through some difficult sections of the river and she lead us through without a scratch. She was also very friendly and made the experience awesome. Next time I come I will request her as my guide. I give the company and Jessie 5 stars.

“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!
