Amazing! We recommend you request Ozzy as your guide. He was a great coach on the raft! It was our first time rafting and he was able to bring two groups of three that had never met together to work as a team. He is from Canon City and had a great depth of knowledge of the river and local... More

Took the wife on a jeep tour with Allen today. Nice chill in the air at the start and we were given a excellent tour of the mountain and gold mine areas of Victor and Cripple Creek. Allen was very informative about the history, local lore, wildlife / plant life. The lunch in Victor was very good. The ride back... More

Wow! This was fabulous. The staff were all so wonderful, helpful and love their job! It was our first time rafting we had a six year old and all through our experience all he kept saying was "This is the best day ever" We're ready to take on a tougher ride with Raft Masters! Thank you for a great experience.... More

We had a wonderful time September 3 whitewater rafting with this company. The tour guides are excellent and knowledgeable about the river, Rapids and history. If you listen to your tour guides they will make sure you are safe during your adventure on the Rapids! Big shoutout to Mike, Abel, and especially Mel who fished me out of the River!!

For a family of 5 boys 8 to 13. Weather and water cooperated perfectly. Our first time ever white water rafting. Time of year water a bit slower than normal. However kids enjoyed it and the guides were a blast. Did the go pro on this well worth it.

We went in after seeing a flier for jeep tours and thought about adding the train ride to the day. But Lyn asked us about rafting. Convinced us that we were ok never having done it. And now I'm absolutely in love with rafting. Between the jeep and the rafting it was the best day ever! Clauss was the best... More

We recently did a morning raft through the Royal Gorge. Such an amazing experience. Everyone at Raft Masters was helpful, knowledgable, competent. Our guide Mike was very good at instructing us what to do when in a very calm way. Even when we went for a "swim" (fell out) we all felt safe. The gorge is absolutely stunning. Thank you... More
