Before booking our trip, I talked multiple times with the owners regarding the best trip/boat for our family. All of my questions were answered with patience. I can not say the same thing about other outfitters who were very inflexible regarding my 13 year old. We finally booked a trip for 5 on the Royal Gorge. The night before our... More

When researching an experience for the whole family, there were a handful of options all of which sounded identical. Choosing WAO proved to be the best decision we could have made. Due to age, our family split between two different 1/2 day trips and WAO was more than accommodating. Our guide for the Big Horn Sheep trip, Jenna, was engaging,... More

We went white water rafting yesterday, and the weather was perfect! Bradley was our guide and he was awesome! His experience in white water rafting made our first experience perfect. Lunch was prepared by the crew and on top of having plenty, it was also delicious! I would suggest that when you first check-in though , you let them know... More

Our family of four (teens 19 and 14) went on guided paddle boat tour thru the Big Horn loop with category 2 and 3 Rapids. This is a small locally owned business. Our family thought we were on the oar boat which involves little involvement by the participants. Our daughter was terrified and did not want to go at all!... More

Took two friends on their first rafting trip, the Bighorn Sheep Canyon half day. I've gone on two rafting trips with this company, and I'll keep coming back every time I want to go out on the Arkansas River. This outfitter is not the flashiest or fanciest, which I like actually. They are reasonably priced and just want you to... More

My husband and I were in Colorado for our honeymooniversary and since he had never been whitewater rafting before, I knew we had to go. I found Whitewater Adventure Outfitters via trip advisor and since it had the best reviews we booked our trip. From the moment I booked our trip online with Kathy I knew it was a great... More

Our family went rafting with WAO this past weekend. The office is easy to find on Highway 50 just west of Canon City. Bradley, our guide, was great. The trip was 9 miles with a stop near the halfway point for a quick swim. The temperature was in the 90's and the 60 degree water was refreshing. We experienced 4... More

While my family loved the knowledge of our guide , I must say the lunch was quite lacking. There was not enough food for our trip. There were not enough cups for water for everyone ( I had to share my daughters cup). After looking around at the other outfitters spread of food , I was wishing ours looked as... More
