Great adventure!
This was my second time with this company and they were great once again! Our guide, Danny, had a great sense of humor (they all did, really) and we had a blast! I will absolutely be back for more!

AMAZING! Worth every penny!!!
Jun 2021
Such a positive and fun experience!!! As a mom, I was concerned having my whole family in this little raft, cruising down some rapids. However, I can't imagine a more positive experience. I'm not a risk taker and insisted on the beginner, which was perfect. I would do this tour again. The guides are awesome. They're confident, experienced, knowledgeable, and great to have. This is a small "mom & pop" business, which I love to support. However, they also communicated with the other tours out on the river, looked out for them, and told us that we could always use their boat for safety if we happened to need it. I recommended this to my sister, who is going next month. I recommended the beginner also, even though their kids are older. We would definitely do this again with Raft Masters!!!

Lots of fun for families with young families
The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. I have a son who isn’t a great swimmer and they encouraged me and made us feel extra safe. We had a perfectly safe and fun experience. Will be back next time we come to Colorado!

Rafting with our daughters
Jun 2021
I had a friend and his daughter come in to town and they both wanted to go White Water Rafting. I was able to secure a beginner trip for them my daughter and myself. Another Dad and his two daughters joined us. Keegan was our guide and he was awesome., His detail on the pre rafting safety was paramount in this adventure. Don’t let the fact that this is a beginner trip fool you into thinking there will be no danger or that the white water knows you’re on a beginner trip. This trip was full of adventure white water in the face and overall a blast. Listen closely to your guide, The stuff they tell you could save your life. Keegan is the man. He was safe smart and knowledgeable about the river.

Great for Beginners!
Jun 2021 • Friends
My dad, sister, and I decided last minute to go rafting and found this place, we are so lucky we did! I was expecting a beginner course to not be adventurous, but we had a blast and it was definitely more exciting than the other beginner courses my friends have told me about. Our guide, Keegan, was super fun and funny and made sure everyone felt comfortable and safe. I definitely recommend for beginners to check this out and I am looking forward to going on one of their activities again when I'm back in CO.

Great for a combination of experienced and beginner rafters
Aug 2020
We were a family of 6 ranging from 5 to 55. We all had a fun time and our stretch of river was not too scary for the 4 that had never rafted before and not to boring for the 2 experienced rafters. Our guide was BK, he was both funny and informative. Would definitely do the same trip again!

Amazing!
Jul 2020
We went on what I believe was the last run of the day. We got paired with Joe, the white water master! He clearly is a master at his craft. He was supposed to take out an advanced group that canceled and volunteered to take us out on the beginner course, our first time white water rafting. Despite us having little knowledge about white water rafting he taught us the basics very fast and corrected any of our bad habits in a very constructive and not demeaning way at all! He both engaged us in conversation and gave us time to enjoy the sights and family time. Amazing guide! Very knowledgeable! Would recommend 1000%!

Great Trip for a Family!
Jul 2020
We chose Clear Creek Beginner for a family of 5 adventure (ages 6 ,7 , 10 and two adults, the kids having zero rafting experience). We were welcomed on property and given Covid Guidelines to keep everyone safe (masks were worn except on the raft, provided gear was all disinfected between guests). Our guide, Joe, was very gracious in not rushing us as we geared up with three kids. He briefed us with the safety guidelines in a way that encouraged us to HAVE FUN, but be sure to listen to him. His demeanor and expertise put this nervous mom at ease. He strategically placed us on the raft to ensure a good experience, and nailed it. The photo package option was phenomenal...every picture shows the fun our family had...huge smiles on our faces the whole trip, lots of laughter, and something we'll never forget. Even Joe had a big smile on his face in each picture as he guided our adventure. I can't recommend the company, and Joe, enough!
