Went two years ago and now this year for Pirate's Day!! So many people and so much fun. This time went the 2.5hr route 2 tour and slow but a few good fast spots. Got free jello shots from one of the tubers. Make sure to bring sun screen, and lots of drinks!!

It was meant to be 47 degrees and we called to be sure they had wetsuits for our kids (9/12). The staff assured us that they had wetsuits of all shapes and sizes (and they did). The drive over from Scottsdale was far but BEAUTIFUL. Through the rain and Sun we saw 6 or so full rainbows. At the raft... More

It IS all about the guides. And the company setting them up for success. We have four guide/owners who bring a combined 81 years of experience to the table and we get out on the river to make sure our focus on safety and customer service is being implemented. With reviews like yours we know we are doing it right... More

The Salt River Canyon is a glorious place, only 2 hours from Phoenix, with the put in 38 miles north of Globe on Highway 60. I booked a full day trip, which covers 10 River miles and includes lunch. Departure time is 10:00, returning around 4:30. Half day trips do 5 miles and don't include lunch. The rapids are pretty... More

I want to thank the guys from Salt River Rafting for a truly enjoyable day. Their knowledge of the area and everything that goes on around it is unbelievable. The scenery is stunning and the rapids are fun but challenging. Burgers and Brats for lunch were delicious. I'm so glad we decided on the full day trip. A class act... More

Never rafted before but the guides and staff were so kind and helpful with me, my teens and my 9 year-old daughters. They helped with our gear, thorough safety instruction, tons of info on the plants and scenery. Really beautiful stretch of the river. We did a half-day trip and it took us about 2-2.5 hours. Would go again and... More

I took my 12 year old out for the first time and I have to say Glenn was spectacular as a guide. It was just the two of us and Glenn on the raft so I was thinking it might not be as fun as a full group, but I was wrong. Glenn added lots of fun facts about the... More
