Our guides, Marcus and Aaron, were friendly, knowledgeable, and competent. Their instructions were clear, the equipment was in good shape, and they made it fun! Safety was always their priority. John got lots of good pictures of our adventure. It was definitely the highlight of our trip!

Hey Jan! You and your family made Texas proud that day showing up to raft with snow on the canyon rim and a forecast of wind and rain not to mention the pandemic! It was truly inspirational to have y'all as our guests and one of those special days as a business owner and rafting outfitter I will remember for a long time. Thank you for writing a review and may all your future raft trips be in the sunshine!

This is my favorite place on Earth with some of the coolest people I've ever met. That's the reason I gift myself a Rafting trip for my birthday as often as I can. This was mine and my daughter's third trip down the Salt with this company. This trip was by far the best...so far. Thanks to our amazing guide Ara and our safety Squid Syd!
We decided to extend our rafting trip to a raft and camp. Best decision we made in a really long time! Barely $100 more for priceless memories. We started out like any other trip by gearing up, then our guides loaded us up and took us up the river further. *This was new. We actually got an extra 20+ mins of rafting because the water was up. After a short, but thorough safety briefing, we were off. Ara was top notch and made our trip super exciting and tons of fun. The rapport between the two women made for great entertainment. Ara also made sure we hit the big holes and got super soaked! We stopped for the famous chicken fajita lunch at 2nd camp, then breezed through the 2nd stretch. The gnarly bus ride back was even more fun, cause we got to raft a third time across a small wash. We said bye to the non-camping guests and drove to camp. (Suggest vehicle with decent clearance) Once we got to camp, Ara brought out appetizers and helped us feel at home. After getting to know everyone a little we had an amazing steak and grilled veggie dinner followed by strawberry shortcake for dessert 😋. We relaxed around the fire for a bit and then hit the sack. We awoke to the smells of breakfast and was shortly greeted by hot coffee for me and hot chocolate for my daughter. After a huge breakfast of pancakes, eggs, hash browns, and fresh fruit, we packed up camp and reluctantly said our goodbyes. This was by far the most amazing trip of our lives....so far. Thank you so much Ara, Syd, James, Terrick, Amy, Aaron, and everyone else that made our stay so awesome! ***Remember to tip your guides***

The Salt River Canyon is my favorite place on earth as well! Thank you for the 3 peat visit. The Salt River Rafting crew looks forward to visit #4 and your father-daughter raft trip into the Federally protected Salt River Wilderness. We also think your visit to Durango, CO and Mountain Waters Rafting trip to the Upper Animas will hit the top of your list as well. Cheers Anthony!

This was a fantastic excursion and the entire crew was as professional, courteous, accommodating and as fun loving as any crew could ever be. Our guide was Sydney, and she was amazing. This is a must for anyone visiting the area.

This was our first time rafting and we would do it again. We would highly recommend our guide, Bama. He did a great job putting us at ease, was very personable and told us alot about the surroundings.

One of the many things I love about rafting is it is something you can do again and again. The river levels change and make for different experiences and of course every river is completely unique. Thank you for the review, Bama is the man!

Incredible first rafting experience thanks to my guide Bama who immediately put me at ease! His river experience and comfort with the rapids made me relax and enjoy every bump and splash. Highly recommend the full day trip with Bama guiding!

Our family took the full day river rafting journey that included a guide, lunch and a return bus ride to our cars. We were all inexperienced white water rafters and a bit on the nervouse side. Our guide, Bama, put us at ease before we got on the raft. The views from the river were fantastic, the rapids were enough to get the blood pumping (I lost a paddle and he didn't make me feel like a dope), and the food at lunch was great (warm fajitas - as much as you can eat). We made the 2 hour drive to and from Phoenix and it was worth every bit of the ride through the canyons to get there. It's a great crew of people. If you are on the fence....do it.

I didn't think white water rafting could get any better until my family got Bama as our raft guide. If I were to go back, I would request him 100x over! Such a friendly, relaxed, funny guy that made the trip one to remember.
